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

My trip with Rio Lagartos Adventures was exceptional. What most impressed me about Rio Lagartos Adventures is they charge you an honest price for everything, and I found them to be helpful and trustworthy people. Every part of the planning and stay went well. Diego was quick to respond to emails and was helpful with figuring out the bus schedule... More

We wanted to see flamingos and other birds to celebrate my wife's birthday. I knew that on the Northern end of the Yucatan penisula was a large colony of flamingos. We booked with Rio Lagartos Adventures and were completely delighted. The only disappointment was that we did not follow Diego's advice to book four tours, two by boat, two on... More

Rio lagartos is such a beautiful fishing port, and this tour is a really good way to discover the nature around. The guys have experience, and we saw a lot of bird species, the pink sea, crocodiles, a cucaracha, and we did the "Bano Maya". I recommand it !
