We went on the seven bay tour and really enjoyed seeing the different bays that make up Huatulco, as well as very pleasant San Agustin. Mario is a local and knows a little bit about everything and goes out of his way to please. My partner forgot to pack a swimsuit, Mario said no problem and took us to the... More

Did another 7 bay tour with Mario, he is knowledgeable, fun, and seems to know everyone in the Huatulco area. Money well spent, next time I am back with do any and all trips with Mario, you can't go wrong using him as a guide.

We spent a day with Mario and it was the best part of the trip! He took us to see 7 bays, fantastic lunch on the beach, snorkeling, fishing and watching porpoises and turtles close up. Mario went way beyond the call of duty and gave our daughter very personal attention and instruction. All I can say is that if... More

We talked to another couple at our resort that booked a boat tour through Mario and could not say enough great things. So we were able to find another couple that was interested and we booked a day tour with him. He picked us up at the hotel via taxis. The overall price included the taxi pick up but we... More

Mario - contact "cobosmario@hotmail.com- describes himself as a bird guide, an impression repeated in the Moon Oaxaca Handbook 2011. The truth is that he is not a bird guide. Whenever he sees a bird he shouts and scares it away. In one dreadful outing we had to identify the birds for him. We went into the coffee plantations in the... More

My husband and I visited Huatulco 2 years ago and did 3 day trips with Mario Cobos and had such a wonderful experience we knew we wanted to visit the area again. This trip we brought our kids and again booked a couple of days with Mario and he did not disappoint. We did a bay tour which ended at... More

I found Mario on the web and after discussing things he suggested the Bay Tour. The prices were very reasonable and we would rather support the proven independent operator than the charter company. We explored many Bays and beaches as well as catching some fish for an awesome lunch at San Agustin. Incredible scenery and ocean. To help pay for... More

We went on a tour of the bays with Mario today and it was so good I couldn't wait to write a review. Mario is knowledgeable, personable and a great guy! I booked this tour for my family down for my wedding, and we ranged in age from 1-70. All had a great time and I would highly recommend

Mario and his driver picked our motley crew up in the morning to go on our tour to the coffee plantation and to some great little town as well as beautiful San Augustine Bay. We had a wonderful time. We started at an Iguana Sanctuary, paid a few dollars per person to help with upkeep. It was amazing to see... More
