Carlos was very respectful, patient, and polite. My family and I booked a tour with him to swim with the turtles in Riviera Maya and it was a very educational ride to the snorkeling site. He talked about the turtles and their habitat, the season and what brings the turtles to the bay and where we can find them. We learned a lot! My kids and I were very amused! On the way home, my mom wanted some fresh fruit from the local farmers market and Carlos took us into the inner city where we can buy fruits. We all got a chance to get off the resort and see the inner city of Mexico and how the buildings and streets looked like. I felt very safe. I very impressed with this tour and how respectful, polite, and educational Carlos was with us. This excursion was my favorite of our Mexico trip and I highly recommended Carlos and his tours! 5 STARS! ✨✨✨

We went on the third day of the season and all yours came back with no sightings on the first two days. Captain Omar and Leutinant Diego work extra hard to find the needle in the haystack, by God they did it! Swimming with these beasts and also monster size Manta ray was the experience of a lifetime. The stop at the beach to have some of the best fresh fish ciniche that the crew made was the best. Thanks again Omar and Diego!!!

Had an amazing time with Carlos. Very knowledgeable and knew all the right spots to see as many species as possible. We saw 46 different species!! Carlos kept track of all the species and sent us an organized list of them all so we didn’t have to write down or remember names. He also took some pictures for us and shared them as well. Wife and I are 30-somethings who never thought we would be bird watching in Cancun instead of partying. It was well worth the detour from our “norm”. Carlos took us to a little place for a light breakfast and beverage. It didn’t look like much but the food was great and the people that owned it were extremely friendly and offered us more when we finished. Wasn’t much bigger than a shack but the friendliness and small bite was very pleasing. Wife and I were by ourselves even though we didn’t book it as a private tour. COVID probably had a lot to do with that with less tourists in the area. We rode in a nice Ford Excursion and not your typical tour van. Was very comfortable. Carlos made the trip for sure. I’d recommend him as a guide on any number of tours. His employer should be very pleased and I wouldn’t want anyone else next time we go back and we will be back for sure.

We visited Cancun in Feb 2021 and booked a Sailfish Tour with Contoy Excursions. They were prompt with their responses, picked us up from our hotel, everything was very well organized, all of the staff were friendly, service overall was exceptional! We were able to see Sailfish along with dolphins, barracuda, and spend a fun day out on the boat. The Captain was very knowledgeable and Carlos our guide was great! Would recommend and would book again!

We had a lovely morning watching birds with our Guide Carlos. He brought two extra binoculars for us and really good sandwiches and soda. Allthough we are total greenhorns in birdwatching he took his time and showed us all the birds patiencely. He knew them all by name and immediately. We saw about 50 different lovely birds.
