Amazing time with knowledgeable guides
Jul 2021 • Couples
This was such a cool experience! They contacted us and said that we should come a day earlier because the moonlight would be less strong to see the bioluminescence. The lagoon was BEAUTIFUL and the birds were so cool. Our guides were very knowledgeable about chacahua, it’s residents, the animal and plant life, and the history of puerto Escondido. I would do this trip again in a heart beat! The bioluminescence was not very strong, due to the weather the time of year I went- but it was still so cool and the guides did their best so that we could experience it.

Totally worth it
Jul 2021
We are in Puerto Escondido and its the one thing my daughter really wanted to do. So I don't think I really spent much time anticipating what it was going to be like. But I was so suprised and pleased by how organized and professional the tour was, and Efrain - our guide - made it such a great experience. He was informative, warm, thoughtful and encouraging to my daughter to jump in and swim. She is still beaming about it. I would recommend the tour to anyone who is even considering it. Its a peaceful prettty lagoon, amazing natural phenomenon and the guides are generous with the time so you never feel rushed. Just great.

Be aware of crocodiles

Many crocodiles also make their home there among the mangroves. A woman was suddenly pulled underwater by a crocodile.

Hola amiga. This woman was attacked in the river of Manialtepec. She went with a traveler who was charging people money so he could get by for his travels. This is very unfortunate news because it has affected us all here in Puerto Escondido. However, it was her irresponsibility of purchasing cheap tours from an unlicensed foreigner who was not authorized and had no idea about the nesting season of crocodiles. We take you to safe areas and we have never had an incident or accident in our tours. We are super careful and certified nature guides. I'm sorry for your discomfort but this was not in the lagoon of Manialtepec where we do our tours.

Nice swim + cool bioluminescence
Cool experience! The water was really warm and pleasant to swim in and the bioluminescence effect was interesting to see (although not super bright). Efraín was our guide and he was friendly and helpful. This tour is not very long but definitely worth the cost.

Danger Beware of Crocodiles

Electric Swimming!
Efrain, our guide, was wonderful! He was very knowledgeable about the area, gave great recommendations for food, beaches, transportation, and the ins and outs of all things Puerto Escondido. It was pure magic to swim in the glow in the dark water! We felt like we had electricity coming off of our bodies! Plus it was like a warm bath, so very relaxing and fun! Highly recommend this experience and tour company!

A trip worthwhile the time spent
I strongly recommend this tour. Booking and communicating with the staff was easy. The guide Efrain was knowledgeable. He was 30 minutes behind the schedule so we got a discount. It was an unforgettable experience that cannot be captured by a camera. Just do it.

Magical
Jan 2021 • Solo
Many tour agencies sell tickets for this popular attraction. I booked with Tony Tours in Zicatela Beach. Pick up was prompt and efficient. I went on a moonless night and truly we saw thousands of stars. Swimming in the lagoon is fun: great water temperature and soothing. Our bodies sparkled. However, what amazed me the most was the stars. Never have I seen so many! Never have I felt so close to The Big Dipper! Experience left Allen our little boat speechless.
