This tour was awesome. I was reluctant to drive 3 hours but pleasantly surprised. The pink lakes alone were well worth it all. As for the different species of birds, we didn't see too many. Maybe an off day? Our tour guide, Damian was great!...More

After asking around the jetty for a boat & a guide with reasonable English we were directed to Jorge Nunez with his boat "Jorge & Diego". His English is near perfect, his gentle humour wonderful and his tour was excellent. Thoroughly recommend.

Our vacataion planning experience with Rio Lagartos Advanrtures was quite disappointing. We'd visited their website and thought we'd like to stay in their lodgings a couple of nights, dine at the restaurant, and take the tour. Well, I don't know what's going on with Diego...More

Amazing big fishing with Diego and Martin. We had a great moment and wonderful time on the boat with Diego and Martin. We even shared the fish at the restaurant Ria Mara with an outstanding view on the sea
