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!!!

Our party of 4 did the Rumble in the Jungle tour which provided snacks, photos of snorkeling portion, and transportation in a large comfy van to Selva Maya Eco Adventure for ziplining, rope bridges, rock climbing, rappel, and snorkeling in a cenote. The tour guides were friendly and welcoming. Lunch was local 'street taco' which was good. We loved that... More

I've done a few tours in Mexico, and this experience blew my mind! The staff was extremely friendly, informative and personable. My wife and I booked the private tour, and it was more enjoyable than either of us thought possible. Manny was our tour guide. He is spirited, intelligent, and a caring individual. If you are wanting an adventure in... More

This is the best way to experience the Riviera! Manny was an amazing guide! We snorkeled with sea turtles, visited an above ground cenote, snorkeled in an underground cenote, ate local Mayan food, visited the Tulum ruins, and ziplined! Each excursion can be personalized for what you like to do. It was especially awesome that our guide took pictures all... More

My apologies this is being done so late but I felt the need to praise Local Quickies on a job well done. I'm sure thousands feel the same way. We booked Local Quickies last minute will already in Playa del Carmen. We had a group of 10 and were here celebrating my husband's 30th birthday July 2014. The original yacht... More

If you are planning to visit Riviera Maya, and can do only one thing, do this! From the beginning, the online booking process was quick and trouble free. Big kudos to Amy for helping us to get things set up. She helped us get scheduled for the Signature Excursion, and we were booking pretty late in the game. This review... More

I had a hard time choosing what excursions to do while on my vacation. I finally decided on Local Quickies Signature Vacation and do not regret this at all. The trip is broken down into five parts and you get to experience a bit of everything. Booking online/emails were easy and problem free. Always a quick response. Pick up from... More

Local quickies picked us up at our hotel early in the morning. After a quick stop by their office to pick up fins and snorkel vests we were off to our first stop. Sophie was our guide for the day and she was amazing. There were only seven people in our group so she was able to give us all... More

This was not my first time to Mexico, but it was my first time to Playa Del Carmen. My friend and I were looking to relax, but do one day full of excursions. This trip did just that.
