Just came back from a great visit to Tres Palos Lagoon. I was challenged to find an activity that interested my 4 older kids who all like different activities (22, 21, 19 and 13). We went out on a boat with our tour guide Roberto (robertoalarcontours) and 2 great local fisherman who provide tours and live on the lagoon. I... More

Birds, birds, birds. Unforgettable tour. Got to try casting a fishing net and got a mud face mask. Lagoon is fascinating.

Besides the boat ride on the lagoon, learning about turtles being an endangered species and how the people here are helping by saving the eggs from being destroyed and hatching the baby turtles to be released into the ocean in hopes of surviving and coming back to lay more eggs.

Guide was very accommodating and friendly. Boat was not as clean as I would have liked. The young boy that dropped the fishing nets so we could navigate the lagoon was exceptional. The mud facials were an added bonus.

This place is ideal to practice water skying in all modes. Jungle trips or tours by kayak or larger boats are available in the area. Less expensive accommodations can be found around Laguna de Tres Palos, staying close to Puerto Marques, Punta Diamante, and 30 min away from the Acapulco costera.
