I had such a good morning's birdwatching with Jacqueline in beautiful Bacalar. I'm fairly new to birdwatching in Mexico and it was genuinely revelatory. We didn't walk far - down to the lakeside , then along a quiet track on the forest edge. But with Jacqueline's knowledge, skill and patience, you come to realise just how much life there is all around you. We saw around 40 species from dawn to mid-morning: tanagers, tityras, gorgeous trogons and most excitingly, a toucan. Most of them were firsts for me. I'd recommend to anyone, and certainly if you're unsure about birding (or early mornings!) then Jacqueline is a brilliant person to convince you.

Gunnar was our guide on a kayaking trip around Laguna Bacalar. Rather than boring us with lots of marketing malarkey, he gave us information and understanding of the lake, the flora and fauna, and its ecological importance. He even built the kayaks that we used. Very rare in foreign countries to ever rent quality equipment. It was a wonderful 3 hours in a beautiful environment. Highly recommend this place.

We visited Bacalar in March 2019 with our two daughters (aged 9 and 11) and booked a last minute 3-hour sunset kayak tour. Our guide, Gunnar, was great and really knowledgeable and the trip was just the right mix of pushing ourselves physically and enjoying the magic of the sunset over Laguna Bacalar. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in Bacalar!

We had a kayak tour with Gunnar early in the morning starting at 6 and in totall about 3 hours. As the tour starts early you see all the start of the morning. Gunnar gave some key information about the Kayak tour and some rules. Sunrise. See a lot of birds. Great tour from 3 hours with great guide from Gunnar. A nice long relaxing break at a fantastic place with the nice blue water. With the children we could walk there about 100 meters in the water and the water came only to the middle. Some great fruit from the area as break and then the last piece back. Thanks Gunnar for the great experience you gave us.

We had the tour with 4 people, so two kayaks. The equipment was in really good shape and also the preparation was very good! Gunnar did an awesome job by kayaking with us, explaining us a lot about the lake, the history and helping us to guide through the kayak tour. The service and equipment (snacks during break, water) and pics during the tour is just incredible. We can highly recommend this tour and the booking with Jaqueline was nice. The both are just great and very friendly.
