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.

The team at Local Quickies know how to treat their guests. We would highly recommend them. We booked the private tour and had a great time. To quote them directly 'don't think of this as a tour but more of an experience with friends'. Couldn't have said it any better myself. Turtles, Tulum ruins, cenotes (complete with bats) and more....

Spent most of a day with "Ez", our guide from Local Quickies during a 5-day trip this past week to Playa Del Carmen. My wife and I, along with another couple had spent a good portion of the trip lounging beachside and poolside at our hotel, Paradisus La Perla, in North Playa. When we contacted Local Quickies about a potential... More

Once again we have booked with Local Quickies and enjoyed a beautiful sunny day on the Raiatea riding back from Tulum to Puerto Aventuras. A group of 9 of us including our 9 month old grandson were picked up from our condo in an air conditioned van and transported to Tulum where we enjoyed the beach and swimming before boarding...

We picked the private tour as we really wanted to get a chance to see everything and have as much focus on us…spoiled I guess. It was a first trip to Mexico that didn’t include a cruise. Local Quickies is by far the best, Gabriel was really nice and when we went snorkeling we had a chance to see so... More

A friend of our recommended Local Quickies for our first visit to The Riviera Maya! We had the best time EVER! We did the signature tour and snorkeled Akumal, went to a cenote then on to lunch at a local restaurant and to Tulum beach for catamaran tour home. Everything was so easy from the booking with Amy to the... More

If you have any reservations about spending $$$ on a full day adventure, do not hesitate, as it will be, without a doubt, the best experience you will have on your trip to Playa del Carmen or Tulum. We had our heart set on joining the Signature Tour on our last two days in Mexico, but failing to book in... More

We spent our 2nd to last day in Playa del Carmen on a private tour by Local Quickie. It was a fantastic day lead by our fabulous tour guide Manny. I made my reservation with Amy and she was great to deal with. Very responsive to my many questions. Our driver picked us up at our hotel right on schedule... More

It was my first time visit Mexico (Jan/2015) and did not know what to expect...this day trip was the BEST. We (group of 9) did the Signature Tour where we snorkeled, visited a secluded cenote, and watched the sun set on a 2 hour catamaran ride. It was amazing. Everyone was super attentive but not in an annoying way. It... More
