He took us to several distinct areas frequented by different bird species. No we are... More

I booked with Diego over the phone, and when I arrived there was some confusion. The guys sorted it very quickly and made sure I was happy. Francisco, "Paco" was very helpful with all my questions. The room was close and clean & the food in the restaurant good. The bird watching trip was booked for sunrise, and still one... More

We did both a boat tour through the mangroves and a land tour for birding. Diego was very knowledgeable and knew where to go to spot certain birds, especially the endemics. He is also friendly and speaks English well. For the land tour, we drove around and did not walk much, but we saw a lot of birds. We also... More

We stayed in rio lagartos in a trip organised by Diego. He is very helpful and responsive, however, overall trip was disappointing. We stayed in rooms at his B&B which is very basic (although price does match) but still place was full of litter, light bulbs not working, limited water, not clean Did crocodile trip first evening. Had two young... More

It's a rookie mistake to put your fishing and hunting spots on the internet. I know better. However in this case I want Diego's family business to prosper. When I called him before the June fishing trip, I said "I did not want to target any specific species of fish I just wanted my son and I to have action".... More

We took the '2 in 1 - tour' with Rio Lagertos Adventures and it was just excellent! We saw dolphins, crocodiles, flamingos and lots of special birds. In the end we touk a 'Mayan bath' with mud and we could floath in a salty lake. Owner Diego and his family gave us the best nature experience we had in Mexico!

Rio Lagartos is a bit of the beaten path but well worth the trip for anyone who is interested in birdlife. We went out with the guide Ramon for both a night trip looking for crocodiles and a morning trip looking primarily for flamingos. Both trips with Ramon in his boat was amazing. We saw all kinds of birds living... More
