Isla de la Roqueta information
This island offers a popular (crowded) beach, and snorkeling and diving possibilities. You can rent snorkeling gear, kayaks and more. From Playa Caleta, boats make the eight-minute trip (M$60 return) regularly. Alternatively, glass-bottomed boats (by the company Yates Fondo Cristal) make a circuitous trip (M$90) from here or the zócalo , pointing out celebrity dwellings, sea life and the Virgen de los Mares , a submerged bronze Virgin statue. Visibility varies. The trip takes about 45 minutes, depending on how many times floating vendors approach your boat.
