Stone Island and Old Town Sightseeing Tour

Your Stone Island Tour begins as you and your group head to the historic city of Old Mazatlan. Listen as your tour guide shares interesting stories and important facts while you explore this fascinating city. Stand at the Old Spanish Fort for amazing overviews of Mazatlan, then watch daredevils climb 45 feet up the cliffs and wait for the right moment to dive between the rocks into 8-foot-deep waters below.

Wander around Machado Square, check out the central market and visit the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Step inside this structure built in the late 1800s and take a photo of the Star of David in the top windows; this symbol was added as a "thank you" to a Jewish family who donated money to help with construction. This majestic cathedral has a mix of Gothic and Baroque styles and covers an entire city block.

From here you will head to the docks and board a boat for a scenic ride over to Stone Island. Explore the island on a short horseback ride, a horse cart ride, or jump into one of the many water activities such as kayaking, boogie boarding or a banana boat ride. Take a swim in the crystal clear waters or just relax on the sandy beach with a cocktail or two. While here enjoy a delicious lunch of grilled chicken, breaded fish, quesadillas or a combination plate giving you a sample of each item (vegetarian meal available upon request).

Nice combination

We enjoyed this tour as we got to see some of the city as well as swim in the ocean on Stone Island. We had 2 problems on Stone Island though - the cleanliness of where we had lunch was barely enough and it was noticeable that every little thing we did on Stone Island, people were pushing for tips. Maybe I just needed to know beforehand so I could be prepared. We are used to tipping but not to the extent that was evident on Stone Island.

Good Tour

Our guide was great. Very knowledgeable on the history, and different areas on the Old Town Sightseeing part of the Tour. The boat ride to Stone Island was fun. Stone Island was a nice setting. Open Bar, and the food was decent. Dining right on the beach. Only disappointing thing was we were offered three activities. One of the three we chose was horseback riding. We had hoped it would be on the beach, however, it was on city dirt roads in the vicinity of the restaurant. Overall, we did have fun and would recommend the tour.

We had a really good time on this excursion, just didn't know we were going to a beach. So we didn't wear swim suits. Still had a good time though
