The three islands of Mazatlán are considered one of the most iconic symbols of the region. They are at once an interesting ecological study and a fantastic recreational space, thanks to their natural attributes and terrain. The islands were named according to the main species that inhabit or once inhabited them: Birds, Deer and Wolves.
The largest and most popular island is Isla de Venados (Deer Island), located right in the middle of the three. It has the most extensive beach and is the best place in Mazatlan to practice snorkeling, thanks to small waves and crystal clear waters. Isla de Venados is ideal for swimming, jet skiing, banana boating, paddle surfing and also for hiking and exploring on land. With an impressive view of the coast of Mazatlan and the surrounding area, you’ll fall in love with the natural beauty and unique perspective that Isla de Venados offers. Don’t miss it!

WOW, what an adventure. Didn't realize that we would be kayaking from the beach over to Deer Island so had to adjust our baggage and place in waterproof bags. We had a small group of 4 and my husband and I were in a double kayak (by choice) and once assisted out past the surf, we paddled easily to the island in about 20 minutes (with coordinated paddling ; )(we had long sleeve shirts and life jackets supplied). Once there, we were assisted bringing the kayaks ashore and drank and ate snacks provided, then hiked up the mountain half way (the rest of the hike was a little steep for us so we didn't go to the top) to an overview of the island and got great pictures of both sides (we had brought our cameras/phones, the guide offered pictures but his camera didn't work). We hiked past cactus similar to ours in Arizona along the narrow path, then returned to the beach where we rested, refueled and got our snorkeling equipment and instructions on use and accompanied to an area where we saw a stingray and many beautiful fish. We were then invited to partake in tasting fresh coconut, first drinking the milk then eating the meat with chamoy and tajin (or plain) while having our questions answered by our very informed, funny and personable english speaking guide, Paul. Then we proceeded to return via kayak to Mazatlan with instructions about change in surf and where to head. We arrived safe and sound and Jacob (10yo) got the thrill of flipping his kayak in the surf on arrival (which soaked my non dry bag bag). After assisting us with the kayaks to shore (another guide helped) ,we were driven back to our hotel. All in all, an excellent adventure for sure!!!
