About This Acapulco Tour
The beautiful waters around Acapulco are your destination on your excursion to La Roqueta Island. You’ll cruise out to the island, which lies just outside Acapulco Bay, enjoying the scenic rolling cliffs and views of Las Playas along the way. Upon arrival, you’ll have many options for your adventure-filled day. Snorkeling should be at the top of your list, as the pristine waters teem with vibrant marine life, fish and coral. La Roqueta is home to nine sparkling sand beaches, so you can explore the diverse tropical ecosystems around each one.
Once your fingers have pruned up from your time in the water, you can relax on the lovely sand beaches and enjoy the warm tropical breezes. If you feel like exploring around La Roqueta, there are several restaurants and shops that line the beaches. Lunch will be served in one of them, featuring local specialties, and don’t worry: Casual attire isn’t just allowed at many places – it’s recommended.
Snorkeling gear is included, but you’ll need to bring other essentials for a glorious day at the beach, including a swimsuit, towel and camera. And keep in mind that you’re in a tropical climate in La Roqueta – and all of Acapulco – so apply sunscreen early and often.
Worth Buying the Underwater Camera
Even if the beautiful underwater landscape and colorful marine life aren’t enough to invest in an expensive underwater camera, you can spare a few bucks on the disposable version. And you’ll be glad you did, as there is a submerged statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe off the shores of La Roqueta. The underwater artwork was created in 1958 by artist Armando Quesado and the sculpture offers excellent photo opportunities. If you’re certified and want to dive deeper, try a scuba tour to explore the caves, rock formations and sunken wrecks around La Roqueta.
