Visited Isla Danzante and Isla Del Carmen (7/21/17). Beautiful clear blue water perfect for snorkeling. Lots of birds and crabs. We didn't see any dolphins, out tour guy looked everywhere, but no luck. But even without the dolphins this experience was awesome!

We stayed at the Hotel Santa Fe. It was clean, had a small kitchen, a patrolled parking lot, and was about $50 per night. Also the steak and seafood restaurant right next door was great.
