Nature Encounter: Hike and Snorkel
Duration: 6 hours
Tour Code: aca-002
Visit the most interesting and exciting places in the old Acapulco as well as enjoying two adventures in one, hiking and swimming in a spectacular ecological reserve on this fun tour.
Leaving the pier, you will first make your way to La Quebrada, where you can admire the skill and precision of Acapulco's world-famous cliff divers. Next, continue on to the Boca Chica hotel, where you will board your glass-bottomed tour boat and travel across the Bay to the undeniably beautiful La Roqueta Island. During your 30-minute trip to the Island, an informative narrative will give you a glimpse into the interesting history and culture of Acapulco throughout the ages, while your glass-bottomed boat offers up a dazzling display of colorful tropical fish and spiny sea urchins.
Upon arrival, you'll receive a briefing from your guide before commencing on an escorted hike through the Reserve's magnificent flora and fauna. The dense forestation that covers the island made it a favorite hiding spot for pirates and who knows? Maybe they left behind some buried treasure! After your trek through this uninhabited paradise, you'll return to the pier and cruise back across the bay to the Boca Chica Hotel where you'll have just over 1-hour of free time to enjoy the beach or sparkling pool before being treated to a light lunch.
Following lunch, you'll have a bit more free time before transferring back to the cruise ship pier where your tour concludes.
