We drove up to Rio Lagartos from Cancun the night before our tour. The roads were in good shape and signage was fairly good, but fine when complemented by our phone GPS. Our tour started with two cups of coffee brought to us at 7 am before the restaurant opened. Our boat took us to the far side of the canal where most of the birds were feeding. The full food chain was on full display. The small fish were swarming above the water being chased by tarpons under water and targeted by hungry cormorants, frigate birds from the top. We are interested amateurs and ended up seeing at least 4 birds that were new to us all pointed out by our guide Diego. Diego is the owner and main guide for the Rio Lagartos Adventures. His expertise in his field was notable. He combines his love of nature with knowledge of the local culture and historical influences in the region. Superb!
