The most common way to get there is by a water taxi known as a panga. The two main places to get into a panga are on Los Muertos beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta near to Hotel Posada de Roger or on the beach at Boca de Tomatlan south of Puerto Vallarta.
The other two options are to hire a private boat for a day or buy one of the many day-trip boat packages booked through the tour agencies located in many of the hotels like Hotel Posada de Roger. Both of these options leave from the Puerto Vallarta’s marina. A round trip costs around US$22 for the day, it gives you more flexibility as far as when you leave and return. The day-trip package, which often includes a stop for snorkeling along the way costs around US$66 per person. These boats leave around 9:30 am and return around 4:30.pm
