When we first arrived in Mexico we were not even sure if our rooms for the night and our tours were booked. Despite several emails and phone calls we didn't receive a definitive reply that we were indeed booked. Fortunately the places we stayed prior to our visit at Rio lagartos phoned and confirmed our reservation and our tour bookings. From that point on everything else was truly memorable. (mostly)
Our first tour in the late afternoon was to see the Flamingo's ....We were lucky enough to have Francisco (Paco) as our guide. As with other parties that have already commented in the reviews Paco was an excellent guide. He was spotting and pointing out several birds along the way and was certainly knowledgeable as we asked our questions. As well as the flamingo flock that we managed to see we too stopped off at the salt flats and the mud beach where a lot of fun was had by a couple of very boisterous teenagers. As we headed back the sun was setting to end a glorious evening ...... A quick change and a bite to eat at the restaurant (shrimp was the winner here) alongside the glorious setting of the sun disappearing over the horizon we were back out on Francisco's boat again for a crocodile hunt. Once again his quick eyes soon spotted a croc and before we knew it he was out of the boat and in the water catching the croc for a closer look!! After we had all held it it was released back in the water so that we could go in search of bigger ones. Francisco certainly knows the waters well as we travelled back (at speed) in near total darkness with the fish jumping out of the water.
We stayed at the dockside lodges and our only gripe was that you can hear the noise from early morning sunrise tours and the guides preparing their boats for the days work other than that the rooms did their job and we were rested enough to travel to our next destination
