Antonio and Carlos did an excellent job of guiding us through Sian Ka'an. If you're in Tulum mainly for the beach, a trip through Sian Ka'an will give you an amazing perspective on the ecology of the place you are staying. Jessica cooked us a delicious lunch, and it was probably one of the best meals of our trip, overlooking... More

The personal, informative, and exciting services offered by Antonio and Jessica made for a memorable experience that was enjoyable in many different ways. Communication and making reservations (even a last minute change in tour time) was handled with ease and comfort. We swam in a cenote and kayaked through Sian Ka'an with Antonio by our side to provide interesting information... More

We have kayaked from Vancouver to Ascension Bay in southern Mexico. Twice we have taken a guided tour of the Sian Ka'an laguna. Both times was an experience that will be remembered forever! Most recently we went with Yucatan Outdoors. Antonio was terrific and very knowledgeable! His passion for the Reserve and flora & fauna within it are contagious! The... More

Antonio and Jessica have an exceptional guiding service. We went kayaking in the Sian Kaan. Antonio is passionate about preserving the Sian Kaan, and he is incredibly knowledgeable about this area. They only offer tours to small groups, and it makes a huge difference in the clients' experience. You may pay a bit more, but it is worth the cost.... More

We booked a kayaking trip with Antonio to see Sian Ka'an late afternoon to sunset. Antonio and Jessica are excellent hosts- friendly, informative, and very passionate about preserving this special part of the Yucatan- very impressed that their personal "carbon footprint" is almost undetectable. Our kayak experience was educational and extremely beautiful. On our return to their camp- dinner was... More

Antonio and Jessica are the best. When their web site describes a 'passionate guide' they understate the passion. We went sea kayaking in Sinn Ka'an and had a great excursion. My daughter (12) rode in the tandem kayak with Antonio and said it was one of the best experiences of her life. Alternating paddling in silence and him telling her... More

We made a reservation for a kayak tour for our family (two adults and two kids). When we got there, Antonio told us that because the water is low (due to the current seaweed bloom), because it is windy, and because we have two kids (and thus need two-person kayaks with only one person paddling), a kayak tour won't really...

Thank you for sharing your feedback, we are very sorry it did not work out as we all would have loved to. In 8 years that we have been kayaking in this paradise with all kinds of weathers and people of all ages this is first time that we have to cancel because of inappropriate behavior. Your wife kept interrupting... More

Kayaking amongst the mangroves and islands of the Sian Ka’an lagoon with Antonio was an unforgettable experience. Starting at first light, we immediately got acquainted with a waking osprey within a few feet of our boat, then, in quick succession, came across bronzed cowbirds in courtship display, boat-tailed grackles, cattle egrets miles from any cattle, a gaggle of American coots,...

Antonio & his wife went way above and beyond to ensure everyone had a great experience!! You will get a lot of sun so be sure to bring something to cover up with. I always like to bring extra water so I recommend it but other than that they take care of pretty much everything. They are extremely knowledgeable and... More

We loved this tour. I wasn't sure I had the strength to kayak, but did fine. Our guide, Antonio, is passionate about nature, about preservation and of course, about the biosphere. His English is perfect. To spend an afternoon with Antonio and later, his partner, Jessica, is to step out of this world and into one of hope, serenity and... More
