La Roqueta island that served as shelter to the pirates that besieged the Nao of China, is now an ecological reserve that holds numerous species of flora and fauna.

VISIT THE VIRGIN OF GUADALUPE 

Get on a small boat that sails from Caleta and Caletilla beaches in the heart of the island. Enjoy the ride in one of the boats with glass bottoms and discover under the sea the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of the fishermen from Acapulco, to whom they sing the mañanitas (Mexican happy birthday song) every year on December 12th.

EXPLORE THE DEPTHS OF LA ROQUETA

Sunbathe on a placid golden beach listening to the waves that caress your feet. Use a visor and a snorkel or diving gear and enjoy the fish banks, marine life and the swings of the underwater currents in the reefs of Piedra Elefante and Piedra Hierbabuena.
