We took a private boat tour with Tony Lopes Lopes "yellow hat" and he was the best tour guide we have ever had!! We had a great time and felt very safe! We saw all the bays and the dolphins, could have snorkelled but opted to not too! We heard from others that Tony Lopes Lopes was the best boat... More

Me and my wife visited Huatulco in July 2014 and found a recommendation on here for Teko and decided to contact him for a private tour of the bays. He came and picked us from the hotel. Teko has a good size boat. We started with a general tour of the bay. Then we went fishing. We went deep into... More

The water in Huatulco is absolutely beautiful. I would say it is better than the caribbean. The reason being is that it is warm very clean (no seaweed) and no jellyfish. When you go into the ocean you can see the bottom. A big plus is that there are also waves so it is really fun

I liked the bay but sand in Huatulco is very coarse. Not the fine white sand, like the Caribbean. It had an orange hue to it. Water was calm enough to safely swim and snorkel and we saw quite a few varieties of tropical fish. Saw a whale in the bay one day. Gorgeous Rocky views on the shoreline. It... More

We met Coco on the beach. He was polite, honest and friendly. He told us what we wanted to hear and offered us his services.His rates are not to high and very appropriate for the service provided. Time was not on our side so we were unable to enjoy a day with Coco but certainly felt confident enough to ask... More

Scenery beautiful, but boat(and group) too big. Snorkel area they took us to was very rough, maybe it was just that day. Would have been nice to have lunch included.

We returned to Huatulco in March 2014 for the second time. In 2013 we did a bay and snorkel tour through the hotel and while it was excellent and the guides did a great job of making sure we all had a good time we decided this year to do a private tour with fewer people. We heard about Teko... More

Just a beautiful, peaceful part of Mexico. Clean, uncrowded, with wonderful staff and comfortable accommodations! Transportation to nearby villages is efficient and affordable. Food is very good, although I would prefer later serving hours for restaurants and bars for the evenings when you chose to stay on the hotel grounds.

The 7 bays excursion is a must-see, it's beautiful and a great way to discover the area. Private tours in small boats will allow you to do some fishing, which is exhilarating!

Took our 1st tour boat (yacht) this year. We enjoyed the scenery, the history told to us about the park land we passed. We even saw Orca's and humpback whales. Even a mother humpback and her calf...It was a beautiful day...
