Stone Island Beach and Old Town Sightseeing Tour
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Stone Island (Isla de las Piedras), Stone Island, Mazatlan Mexico
This tour starts off by picking you up from either your Mazatlan hotel or cruise ship terminal.

For example, you can admire some of the most beautiful views of the city where the Old Spanish Fort was located and where the original cannon is still placed.

We were fortunate to have just ourselves with our english speaking guide on this tour which took us initially thru Historico Mazatlan then onto a catamaran to Stone Island to bask on the beach and enjoy several activities while there, including a delicious lunch of chicken/beans/rice and beverages. We chose just the donkey and cart ride thru town and our escort happened to have lived in my hometown in Arizona so it was an extra special conversation. As we were the only english speaking visitors the captain made of point of addressing us as Arizona which helped me que into his tour information. Once returned to the dock, we continued our tour back thru Mazatlan and received detailed information to our questions about the sites. Our guide stayed with us the entire time rather than dropping us off so we always had a resource close by. We saw people enjoying the banana boats, the quads, the horseback riding and swimming while we kicked back and soaked up the sun with an abundance of liquid refreshments. A thoroughly enjoyable day! Thank you Enrique.
Great tour, highly recommend
Had a great tour worth the money had lots of fun all the sightseeing of the city and fun at Stone island lunch drinks and horseback riding.
Our Guide George was very good and was knowledgeable about Mazatlan. The downtown stop at the church and the market gave us time to experience those two cultural attractions as well as the panoramic view of the city from the hill top and George did not push us from a time perspective. We were disappointed in a few things. First the cliff jumpers were only operating on an additional gratuity of 25.00. Secondly, the horse back ride was a 3 block circle which I would have enjoyed going further for a longer time even if it was a separate charge. The carriage ride around the village was good allowing us to view the general culture and was 15-20 min long. The food was good and our guide's service to us was excellent.
Both the tour guides from the van and the island were excellent. The lunch hit the spot. My only complaint is that the activities on the island were quite short.
This was a disappointing tour. Our guide was not informative about Mazatlan and not interactive. He also didn't speak very good English, which I expect on a tour like this. We had a long wait for our boat to Stone Island. It seemed unorganized. The access to Stone Island was the only good part of the tour. It was well-managed on the island. The Old Town Sightseeing portion of the tour is a joke. The guide dropped us off at the cathedral and market, but didn't come with us to provide information. I went back to Old Town on my own and learned much more from free walking tour websites.
