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

We bookend the deluxed tour to the flamingo's, which gives you more time to watch the flamingo's. There are plenty, but it is nice to watch them for some time. Our guide gave us a lot of information and was respectful of nature.
Nice combination with the mud bath and the salt lakes. Salt lakes are not pink all the time though, so if you got your mind set on that, better to check with the guides before you book.

We arranged a tour with Diego for 6:30 a.m. We waited 45 minutes, no show. Then a guy showed up and said his alarm didn't go off. He started readying a boat. Neither the boat nor the guide looked very professional. We decided it was too late to start the trip given the extremely hot weather.

Later in an email Diego said his wife had an emergency and he sent a business partner for our tour instead.

We were able to easily arrange tours with another professional guide on the Malecon. His boat was fine and had life jackets. He charged us less than half the price Diego offers on his website. The guide spoke English and Spanish. We did both a sunset tour and a sunrise tour. Very nice, lots of birds and crocodiles. We enjoyed Rio Lagartos!

Diego Nunez is a top notch fly fisherman, even if I am not. We got to play out a few tarpon, then head into the mangroves when the wind was too strong for fly fishing. We had a 20lb tarpon literally jump into our boat.
The food at the restaurant was amazing to finish the day off. We will definitely be using Diego and his services again in the future, and we highly recommend him.

A lake where salt is produced, seashore. Water turns pink and it's a great day out although a long drive from Cancun. Great to explore nearby villages and take a tour to see flamingos.
