Our two days with Lemuel were the highlights of our Christmas vacation. We enjoyed the ruins at Tulum and particularly the insights that Lemuel shared with us. We loved our adventure to the Mayan village...the solitude, zip lining and swimming were a perfect break from the busy resort. We loved our time so much, that we booked a 2nd day... More

We embarked on 3 different tours with Carlos from Mormon Encounter LDS Tours. With each tour, Carlos shared his insight and incredible knowledge into the Book of Mormon and we were able to spend time reading from the Book of Mormon while we traveled. We had new first time experiences of a lifetime each time we went out with him.... More

I appreciated that he always told us what was a "guess" and what was "fact". I loved hearing his life experience and the growth of the church in Mexico as... More

We took the Chichen Itza, Ek Balam tour with Lemuel Petlacalco. It was amazing! Lemuel is such a gracious and enjoyable host. His knowledge of those sites is unparalleled. I wish I'd been taking notes as he talked. I've come home and recorded as much as I can remember. Truly a one-of-a-kind experience. You will not be disappointed!!!

We had a wonderful and testimony building experience with Carlos during our tour! ! The information he imparted to us was amazing! Reading the book of Mormon will be enriched with these gems of knowledge that we gained. Carlos spoiled us with the best cenotes after the tour and with a delicious, authentic meal cooked by friends there in the... More

We booked our first tour with LDS Tours Cancun, www.lds-tours.us to visit Chichen Itza, Ik Kil Cenote and Ek'Balam. We knew this was a bit ambitious but we wanted to take advantage of the time we had available, you can make your own tour if you don't see it listed on the website. We were two couples in our group... More
