We arrived in Rio Lagartos in the late afternoon and were accosted by touts selling eco-tours. However, we had read about Rio Lagartos Adventures and were impressed by the reviews so we called them. Diego responded immediately, and we started with the sunset tour, led by his son Jesus, who was charming and pointed out all points of interest in... More

My wife and I spent some very fine days in Diego Martinez posada and together with his boat crew on birdwatching (lagoon and dry land), fishing and crocodile tours. His son - also called Diego - was good at finding all types of creatures. Astonishing for at Dane it was possible to get very close to the birds. Eg. a... More

Rio Lagartos is about a four-hour drive on good road from Cancun. The owner of Rio Lagartos Adventures, Diego Nunez, speaks excellent English and responds to his cell phone messages quickly (or answers it directly). We went out into the estuary at 6 am for four hours for a distance of about 22 km (one-way) and saw thousands of waterbirds... More

I found Diego by doing a search on google for Rio Lagartos birding. I wasn’t looking for a guide--I wanted to go photograph the Flamingos and that was really what I ended up contacting him for. It is well worth paying someone a few bucks extra that knows where certain birds are so you can get good looks--or in this... More

READ ME PEASE! We were stopped by a small guy on a motorbike on the way into town with several dozen hand written reviews, and we almost let go of the trip of yucutan. This trip with Adrian was the single best trip of several we had in the yucutan peninsula. There are very competent guides to be had from... More

I had the opportunity to go fly fishing in Mexico for the first time the week of January the 13th. We flew in to Cancun, rented a car and drove to Rio Lagartos Monday night. We had two days of great fishing Tuesday and Thursday. Diego is a great fishing guide who also took the time to show us some... More

We booked a 4 hour photography birding tour by boat with Diego online for $120 USD. He required a $60 deposit which we paid via Paypal. The morning of our tour we drove 1.5 hours from Valladolid to Rio Lagartos where we found Diego easily. I was disappointed that Diego himself wasn't our guide but his brother-in-law was great. We...

Used Diego and his son Diego Jr for three days of fishing. While the fishing wasn't the greatest it was a good time. And the guides I felt really did try hard to find fish and put you in the best position to catch them. Also they appeared very knowledgeable and lastly they used good equipment and had a nice...

There are a lot of "lancha" operators in Rio Lagartos looking for your business. We ended up going to the restaurant near the main waterfront and booked a boat ride through the Rio Lagartos nature reserve. Diego Nuñez was our guide and he was great. He knew all the bird species and had an "eagle eye" for spotting crocodiles. We... More
