Diego Nunez knows his birds. We did a two day morning/evening bird tour from the comfort of his truck and I picked up 26 new lifers, including the Olive throated Parakeet, cinnamon Hummingbird, Yucatan Bobwhite, Dusky-capped flycatcher, and an albino Tiger Heron. Stayed at Diego's place at the Ecotour lodge. Very clean and nice room with plenty of space and... More

No traffic, no people, no air conditioning, no nothing... just a wonderful place to do something different located about 2:30 hours from Mérida, Yucatán. A small fishermen town with no calendar or hour to comply with. Park anywhere and walk to the "malecon" (seaboard). Talk to the guys offering tours to the salt reservoirs and work your bargaining skills until... More

My two children (21 and 22) and myself went to Rio Largartos to see the crocodiles at night, and bird watch in the daytime. We had a great time with our guide of the 2 trips, Francisco. Wonderfully educated young man that has a degree in eco tourism. He knew the names of all the birds, the ages of the... More

A long way by boat, not cheap. We saw numerous herons, pelicans, egrets and 3 crocs, all very close up. The flamigoes, however, were a long way away and not as many as I expected but they were very pink!

We spent a couple of hours touring Rio Largartos and seeing the wildlife and numerous flamingos. The scenery was beautiful and our guide spotted several alligators hiding in the mangroves which was fun to see. We also got out and floated in the salt ponds and also got a Mayan mud bath out of it as well. It was a... More

I have never seen flamingos that were so intensely pink in my life! They looked Photoshopped, but couldn't have been since I was seeing them with my very eyes! It is definitely a bit of a road trip, but we stayed at the Hacienda Chichen in Chichen Itza & made this one of our day trips using our rental car.... More

This boat trip was included in our Mayan 7 day tour, and prior to arriving we were told that during this trip we could see Crocodiles, Pink Flamingos, Herons, Storks, Seagulls, Hawks. We managed to see all the birds plus more, but on this day the Crocodile failed to appear, which perhaps was a good thing, as towards the end... More

We recently came back from the Mayan Riviera and did many excursions. We enjoyed them all. One that didn't have much pretence was the navigation through Ri@ Lagarto. We were not sure what to find. They told us we could see various birds and possibly Lagartos. We did see birds and no lagartos. The pink flamingos were the best sight.... More

We did this with friends and family, the drive was interesting as we passed thru some small villages and our tour guide was our friend who is very knowledgable and respectful of the culture and the land. Our boat guide found a horse shoe crab and explained to us that it was one of the oldest living crustations, he pointed... More

We did the eco-tour as part of of the Experincias Xcaret Ek Balam tour. Our tour guide mentioned that the boat driver would give a lot of educational and interesting info about the mangroves. He did not say a word to us the entire boat ride. The flamingos were pretty, but I would have rather spent that time at Ek... More
