I went fishing with Julio's Tours in Zihuatanejo, Mexico and it was a completely wonderful experience. The capatin and crew were polite, the boat was clean and in ship shape and the gear was completely modern. We caught lots of fish and had a fine meal afterwards.

This was our second trip to Zih and while the end of May is not the ideal time to go (hot), we had a great time! There was stormy weather off the coast that morning and we asked Julio if he thought it was heading our way (my Spanish is very poor), he said he thought it was and we... More

The whole reason we went with Julio was the reviews on trip advisor. However, some more recent reviews are likely more accurate. Julio literally did not say anything to me or my wife. In fact, we were only 2 people on 5 hour boat ride, and Julio didn't even ask what my wife's name was or say a word to... More

I really don't understand your review. I spoke to you and your wife and in fact your wife spoke a little Spanish to me. It was a little difficult hearing your wife as her berka muffled her voice. If we didn't speak all day long how did you know that I had children and Tomas has a little boy? You... More

During our very first trip to Zihuatanejo a couple of weeks ago, my husband, two children (9 and 12) and I joined Julio and his first mate, Tomas, on a snorkeling and fishing combo for the day. We had a wonderful time. Carol and Gary, Americans who assist Julio with his clientele, helped us to book the excursion and provided... More

Our family of four signed up for the fishing/snorkel trip with Julio last week during our March Break. The best part of the experience was the pre-trip booking exchanges with Julio's volunteers. The day of the tour we easily found the meet up location but Julio was late. We then waited on the pier while he got drinks for the... More

We went fishing with Julio two weeks ago (just got back Saturday). It was easy to meet up with Julio at the Marina in the morning, he told us where we could get some great sandwiches for the trip and we were on our way. His boat Joceline is clean and in great shape. We quickly caught fish right outside... More

I'm not sure how many fishing/snorkeling trips we have taken with Julio but it's something we never miss and every year we have a fantastic time. We caught so many fish this year that my arms were aching! Julio is just a great guy. His panga is always spotless and in great shape. This year while snorkeling my snorkel came... More

Along with a friend I spent a great day on the water with Julio and his mate Tomas. Julio met us at the pier right on time, the panga was spotless and comfortable. Julio was a great fishing guide putting us on many fish with several hours of constant action. Often we had 2, 3 and occasionally all four lines... More

We loved our tour with Julio! He is friendly and took very good care of us, and showed us so many beautiful things including two whales breaching less than a hundred yards away just as we were heading out of the bay! Simply AMAZING!! Most definitely a highlight:) And ending with the most breathtaking sunset! Every sunset in Zihua was... More

We took an amazing sunset cruise with Julio this just a week ago and I cannot stop thinking about the beautiful imagines. Julio is friendly and his panga is perfect for a small party. There were 6 in our group. Julio knows these waters. We were out to of Zihua Bay when all of a sudden Julio exclaims *WHALES*. Much... More
