This is an absolute MUST if you are visiting anywhere near Playa del Carmen. My family includes two teenagers (ages 18 and 16) and they both loved it! Javier was so informative about Mayan culture and history and we recommend him highly! Seeing the ruins was one of most amazing parts of our trip, and I would 100% recommend doing it through Orion to get the full experience!

If you want a special and rewarding trip to the Mayan coast, Tulum, Coba and the area, you will be 100% happy if you hire Javier and his company Orion Expeditions for your personal tour guide. Here’s why.

Cost is very reasonable when you consider that the personal tour program from Orion includes sooo many things! Transportation, meals and most importantly personalized information delivered in conversation not as a script.

Javier and his team are a pleasure to work with, considerate and reliable. They truly care and take it personal, not something you ever get from a large commercial tour company.

WE DID EVERYTHING! Snorkling, swimming, zip lining, climbing, hiking, laughing and even Javier’s home made brownie’s.

Javier is passionate, educated and a wonderful representative of the unique Mexican culture. We earnestly recommend Javier and Orion Expeditions if you come to the area, but more so, consider coming to the area because of Javier and Orion. Expeditions.

My girlfriend says this review is PERFECT and she whole heartedly agrees!

In December 2017 my husband, 9 year old son and myself traveled to Mexico for the first time. As we were planning our trip, a good friend of ours referred us to Javier. Since we were unfamiliar with Mexico and wanted to maximize our time in the country, we hired Javier for 2 days as our private tour guide.

Our experience was excellent. Javier was extremely knowledgeable in the history and culture of Mexico. He was extremely punctual with our agenda and knew the sites we visited inside and out. We never waited on a line or were subjected to crowds. He opened up new experiences for my family that we probably would have never done had we not met Javier. We visited beautiful Mayan ruins, climbed temples, snorkeled in cave systems and went zip lining, and Javier did it all with us.

By the end of our 2 day experience with Javier, we felt as though he was a close family friend the way he treated our son. If you are planning to go to Mexico, we highly recommend you talk to Javier. It is worth every penny.
