Please do not look further. Maria is excellent, and she is an expert in Marine Biology (speaks very good English) and every attention to detail is taken care of. From the transportation to meals on the boat, to pictures being sent to you after your trip it's all taken care of. Francisco is the captain and his ceviche is best... More

I booked a private tour for my family of five (10, 9 and 7 year old children). Luz and Mario were great. They were very patient with my children who had never been snorkeling before. They picked us up at our hotel and back at the end. They had masks and snorkels for the children including wet suits. I would... More

Luz took our family of four on two snorkeling trips that were amazing. We took a boat out to the reef off the coast of Puerto Morelos and it was very cool. We snorkeled in two different areas and Luz - who is a Marine Biologist - explained everything that we were seeing, the history, etc. Not what you would... More

I have water apprehension. I had to do this tiburon swim for work and I was really apprehensive. Luz and Paco have been amazing. From the moment we went, I felt safe. They picked me up at my hotel, the boat ride went really well. Once we were at sea, we were jumping in the water 2 by 2. I... More

I am a meeting planner so tours are part of my business. While on a personal vacation this month with one of my friends we were told by a local friend that the Whale Shark tour is a "must do". We took our chances as this is now the end of the season and we went on the tour. Luz,... More

Luz Maria took us in pairs into the sea with snorkels & fins and we got really up close and personal with the whale sharks (who were, at... More

Swimming with whale sharks is a privilege and an honor -- an experience unlike any other. This year’s swim using Buceo Xtabay was -- by far – the best of the four Whale Shark adventures I’ve had the opportunity to experience over the past seven or so years. This company was superior in every way. Buceo Xtabay is a family... More
