Yet another wonderful visit to see Carlos and his tour company

We have been visiting Belize for 50 years and we always try to use Hicaco tours as Carlos and Salvidor are wonderful experts and always look after us well

Our family-a middle-aged couple and four 20-somethings, spent a week on Caye Caulker. We booked a half day snorkel tour with Carlos and we cannot say enough about how great it was. He DID NOT overbook his boat (trouble we had with another tour guide company) and took just our group out on the tour. Wow-he spent some good time... More

My friend and I had a great time on this tour. The guides did a wonderful job 'free diving' and coaxing sea creatures out from under the reef for us to see, like moray eels, lobsters and parrot fish. I particularly enjoyed snorkelling in shark-Ray alley and being so close to the Rays. A huge spotted Ray and two nurse... More

We just happened to walk by, sad because we missed a tour to see Manatees as we were not carrying enough cash for the first tour company. Low and behold this company was leaving in 10 minutes, had room for us and accepted credit cards! We weren't sure what to expect and required special accomodating as my daughter is only... More

My wife and I visited all of the snorkel companies and decided on Hicaco Tours because we didn't want to waste time in San Pedro eating lunch in between spots. Salvador and Benito guided us to 4 very nice snorkel areas over the 4 1/2-5 hour trip and finished with a visit to the western side of the island, where... More

Having asked at several places in Caye Caulker about snorkelling day, most places give you three snorkel spots and a 90 min lunch on Ambergris, Hocacin offers 6 dive sites, lunch at sea giving much more time in the water and then chucked in a bonus seahorse feed after looking for them. top day out, thank you Carlos not only...

We used Hicaco for two snorkel adventures. The first one was the night snorkel. Alex was our guide and he took us out on the boat at sunset. There were 5 of us on the boat. We anchored near the snorkel site and waited until it got dark. Flash lights were provided and the atmosphere under water was very different... More

My husband and I did the full day snorkeling tour (with stops at Hol Chan, Shark Ray Alley, Coral Gardens and the Split). Carlos was our guide, and he was very easy-going and friendly. He made us feel safe on the snorkeling trip. Carlos pointed out many different fish; he held a couple of the sting rays and nurse sharks... More

Did a 3 stop half day tour in the Caye Caulker marine reserve.60 Belize Dollars.Nice easy going. Stopped in shallow water where you could stand while Nurse sharks and Southern stingrays swam around you. At the end went through the Split round to the other side of the island to feed some tarpons. That was a nice ending to the... More
