Unfortunately we found this place towards the end of our holiday, so we were only able to go a couple of times. For a very reasonable price of 70 pesos per person, compared to Playa Norte which is about 250 each for a sun lounger!...More

Only opened at 10 and closed at 18.00. The place has great shade and loungers for relaxing and a small beach with easy water access. Snorkelling was safe and there were enough fish to keep everyone interested for a while.

This place is small and cozy, food is excellent and cheap. The servers were pleasant and friendly. If you want to spend a day swimming, snorkeling, don't go any further. Our second time there, we will be back for sure.

70 pesos to snorkel----feed the fish...you cant beat this place. Fish literally jumping out of the water. Lots of starfish, some sand dollars.... make sure you swim everywhere as over to the left was a ton of larger more diverse fish

We took the ferry to Isla Mujeres from Cancun and ended up staying the whole day at Garrafon de Castilla! It's about a 20 min cab ride from the ferry terminal (cost 100 pesos) and the entrance fee for the beach club was 70 pesos...More

Every visit we go to Garrafon de Castilla the snorkeling and view can't compare for the price. It was 70 pesos a person for entry which is a very good deal. We did have an issue with our bill having an added "service" fee. Not...More

This small beach area has a restaurant and patio bar and beautiful gardens on a hillside. The views are gorgeous. It is relatively inexpensive and worth visiting for snorkeling off the shore. I recommend bringing your own snorkeling gear as the stuff they rent out...More

Yes, used mask, mouth piece and flippers (the flippers for an extra charge, but I don't think it was too much). Next time though, we'll probably take our own - at least the mouth piece.
