Inspirock Rating:
2.9/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
Escape the nearby resorts and enjoy the unspoiled beaches on Deer Island (Isla de Venados). The calm waters in this ecological reserve make the island perfect for snorkeling, swimming, and kayaking. Numerous tour companies offer excursions from Mazatlan; if you prefer to explore on your own, you can rent a boat with a driver to take you to the island. You'll find little shade once there, so ask in advance about borrowing an umbrella. The food service on the island is limited to those on the tours (and some reports cite poor quality), so pack a cooler full of drinks and snacks to keep you going. Make Deer Island (Isla de Venados) a part of your Mazatlan vacation plans using our Mazatlan holiday planner.
