  1. Thanks snowdogsmm and KroozNut for taking the time to share your experiences on Stone Island. We were leaning towards doing Stone Island on our own rather than an arranged tour, so it was good to hear that it is doable and we could also possibly save a little money. Thanks again for your time.
  2. What are your thoughts on a tour company planned visit to Stone Island versus a do it yourself Stone Island visit? My wife and I are on a cruise in January 2020 that is stopping in Mazatlan from 9:00am – 5:00 pm. We are trying to decide if we should book a tour of Stone Island which includes pickup and drop off, a 1 hour catamaran tour, 30 minute ATV tour, lunch and open bar (at Casa Cardona), and use of beachside facilities like palapas for the price of $114.00 total for two people, or should we just do the trip to Stone Island ourselves (without a tour company – a la carte). Doing it ourselves would entail us taking a short walk to catch a water taxi to Stone Island. I was told that it costs $2.00 per person round trip for the water taxi. After the water taxi ride, you must take a short walk down the beach to get to the restaurants. We have heard that Letys restaurant is a nice and reasonable place to eat or would you recommend another place with good food and reasonable prices. We want a good lunch and 4/5 alcoholic drinks each during our 3-4 hour stay on the beach. I was told that we may be able to arrange for our own ATV tour from a vendor on the beach for a good price. Is it true that you can arrange for your own activities on the beach? What would you recommend for us and why? We are not afraid to walk a little. We are just trying to get the best deal for our money.
