Carlos is an excellent bird guide. I always worry that bird guides really are better at sales than birds. Carlos is honest at sales and just what really active birders need in the field. Carlos set up a great one day birding tour from Akumal. I worked with him for about two weeks, providing a target list, discussing options etc. He was always pleasant to work with. To meet my needs, he actually brought a second excellent bird watcher/guide along. It cost a little more for the two guides but still reasonable, and well worth it. He knows the birds, their songs and calls, and where to look for the best chance. This often resulted in driving down dirt roads in villages for just that special spot. If someone came out to see what we were doing, Carlos quickly explained, and always got positive support from the land owners..

I would recommend Carlos to any skill level of birding.
