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.

Great chance to enjoy nature. Birds, flowers gorgeous scenery and a relaxing boat tour. Our guide Baldo Gomez took us there and then ate the fresh fish caught and cooked on site. 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

All is peacefull as you travel along calm waters where you can see locals fishing and wildlife in their habitat. You feel like you are in the Amazon while... More

Thanks to our friend and driver, Max Salinas, we made our way to laguna de Tres Palos for a trip on the lagoon. It was one of the most relaxing days ever, and the beauty of this place, the opportunities for photography, and the delightful meal after was well worth it. Rest. Los Bou Bous prepared a wonderful meal and... More

And bargaining for your fish! The local fisherman will sell you his catch for an amazing deal (in Pesos of course). If you have access to a kitchen & prefer to cook it yourself - do it! Fresh caught fish, take it to the nearby restaurant for a few pesos & they'll clean it & ice it for you to... More

Baldo does it again!!! on our last day in Acapulco, Baldo suggested that we go to the lagoon and have lunch at this fantastic place called los Bou Bous. This restaurant they take your order, you select a fresh swimming fish, and they cook it for you two different ways (chili and garlic). While they are cooking your food, you... More

My wife and I spent several hours on a pontoon boat with local guide maneuvering around this unique lagoon outside of Acapulco. We saw numerous flamingos, flocks of pelicans, some beautiful huge storks, hundreds of herons and egrets, eagles, hawks, kingfishers, and many more varieties of birds. We then had lunch at the pontoon guide's family restaurant on the shoreline.... More
