Fernando was the PERFECT guide. Incredibly knowledgeable about both marine life, the Mayan and Mexican culture, and definitely the right person to make you laugh. Our i hour excursion flew by at Fernando's lead, it was absolutely amazing and he left us wanting to do more. Thank you Fernando and Go Natural for a WONDERFUL experience during our first trip...

Found this to be a very sad trip. 30percent of the reef has died and the turtles food supply isn't great, due to damage caused by people visiting. Our tour guide told us this information. We found there to be far too many people there and some very beautiful turtles in very barren conditions. It wasnt pleasant and cannot understand... More

Water is beautiful and warm, beach is picturesque. You don't need a guide to show you where the turtles are. My partner and I were in the water for about an hour and it was as we were heading back in to the shallows that we saw about 6 turtles just lazily grazing the ocean floor. We stayed back and...

I sent 16 people over a few days to do the snorkeling with the turtles activity. They loved it and really enjoyed the whole experience.

We went to Akumal for snorkeling with the turtles. At first I was very skeptical, I've been many times to Akumal but never snorkeled before. I have to say I was very surprised. We saw many turtles! We brought our masks and wanted to rent life jackets but they wouldn't do it! They told us they weren't allowed because of... More

This is an ideal spot for snorkelling. As soon as we entered the water we saw many turtles. we swam along the reef and saw a lot of interesting varieties of fish as well. we went without a guide. When you arrive at the beach, people will try to tell you you need a guide to enter, but from what... More
