This was a surprising secluded hike right off the coast of the metropolis of Acapulco! We got to the island by private boat and paddled to shore at a tiny cove. A set of stone steps leads to an unmaintained cement trail that circles the island. There are stairs where the trail gets steep and several lookout spots with breathtaking views of crashing surf and jaw dropping cliffs we didn’t encounter anyone else on the western side of the island. Guided tours go from the beach on the eastern side to the lighthouse and tiny nautical museum at the top of the hill where there is a stunning view of the entire bay.
