Guide was very accommodating and friendly. Boat was not as clean as I would have liked. The young boy that dropped the fishing nets so we could navigate the lagoon was exceptional. The mud facials were an added bonus.

This place is ideal to practice water skying in all modes. Jungle trips or tours by kayak or larger boats are available in the area. Less expensive accommodations can be found around Laguna de Tres Palos, staying close to Puerto Marques, Punta Diamante, and 30 min away from the Acapulco costera.

One of the nicest nature tour in Acapulco. Water taxi took us on the "jungle tour" weaving through the waterway seeing a lot of nice sea birds sitting patiently to prey on the fish (I suppose) and fishermen competing with them by casting nets all over the place, causing a bit of inconvenience as the boat needed to lift the...

We had an hour boat ride around the lagoon. It is a wonderful scenic place, with many birds to see Part of the tour was lunch in a nice restaurant, a swim in the pool and time to relax on the beach.

Three cheers for Baldo. We email him to pick us up at the airport and enjoy his van and knowledge when we are ready to move from the... More

This is a huge lagoon. We were told it is 4 times the size of Acapulco Bay. It is a bird sanctuary and one of the most peaceful places on earth.

The entire lagoon Tres Palos has no beaches. Too shallow to swim, muddy. But, constructing a beach would be possible, with dredging and pouring a few truckloads of sand and rocks. Tom Simunovic, Niagara Falls
