My wife and children and I have just come back from seeing the Whale Sharks with Luz Maria, Mario and Pancho and had an absolutely amazing day. Pancho got us out to the whale sharks ahead of the other boats and we had plenty of time swimming with them before the crowds arrived. Same for the snorkelling, they took us... More

My kid and me went to the whale shark with LuzMa, Mario and Pancho. They also have other tours, like diving, cenotes, etc. LuzMa and Mario picked us in our hotel, and Pancho was getting the boat and the delicious lunch ready.. he cooks, and he's good!!! On our way we stoped at a 7-Eleven for "breakfast". The tour starts... More

Amazing experience! Since the beginning the Xtabay team was very nice, they explained us everything you have to know about the whale shark week, they always tried to make a difference in small details as wearing wetsuit, departing from a different port, and bringing delicious snacks. I really recommend Buceo Xtabay

I was looking for a good option to do whale shark snorkelling but didn't want to go with the big tour operators who literally hunt the whale... With Buceo Xtabay I found the right partner for the trip as our organisator and guide is a marine scientist with MBA qualification. There are always just 2 persons in the water plus... More

Thank you very much for your comment. Indeed we try to be a little different than the big operators offering the warmth of a family business but with professional preparation for our clients feel special people where they are not just another number. On the other hand, we always try to follow the rules established for this activity because we... More

Once in a lifetime experience! Luz Maria is very easy to work with and great with children! Her expertise in marine biology made the trip an educational one for our family.

A local person told us about Maria - and boy are we glad we found her. She is a trained biologist and her snorkeling tour is exceptional in the area. We had been with other tour operators in PM who just rush you from one spot to the next acting as though snorkeling is about covering more ground. Maria showed... More

I will vociferously recommend a tour of the Yucatan Cenotes with Buceo Xtabay to anyone who plans to visit the Puerto Morelos area. Yes, we could have driven to the cenotes on our own but we would have missed out entirely on Luz Maria's intelligent, thoughtful and inspiring tour and that would have been a great loss. Yes, we could... More
