With over 30 years of local experience, we are qualified to show you the Riviera Maya like nobody else can. Your local Quickie will take you to places that are hidden gems off the beaten tourist track and fill you with knowledge and fun that only a local can. Our signature tour (which is NOT PRIVATE) is what has made us famous as it is a land and sea based experience that nobody else can offer. We also specialize in private charters on multiple vessels of many sizes for weddings, rehearsal parties, corporate events, birthdays, baptisms, anniversaries or just for fun. Feel free to come as a guest and leave as a friend. Direct bookings only as you will not find any information about us at your hotels. Allow us the privilege to earn your trust and exceed your expectations.Happy sailing!!!

Local Quickies was recommended by a coworker when told of our upcoming vacation to Playa Del Carmen. After reading the other reviews on trip advisor, we knew this was the excursion for Myself and my four twenty-something children. We were picked up promptly at the Royal, where we met up with two lovely ladies, Luella and Caroline from New York,... More

First off, let me say that the reason for only 4 stars is partially due to a weather issue during our excursion. There was nothing that Local Quickies could do about this. The first part of our signature tour was amazing. They really make you feel like family and friends, instead of just tourists. I really enjoyed the informative guides... More

Our tour guide was Sophia and she was brilliant - very engaging and knew a lot about the places we were visiting. We snorkelled with sea turtles, stingrays, went... More

This is by far the best trip to book, especially if you want to do a little of everything (cenote, snorkel, ruins, and catamaran) My only negative thing to say was that the cenote was not an underground cave. It was still beautiful but if you want to see the caves I suggest doing that separately!
