Have been on both the 1/2 day and the full day tours with Carlos and both were fantastic. Carlos is so knowledgeable about the area and the marine life and has an engaging personality that keeps the energy going for the day. He also takes amazing photos so leave the GoPro at home and get the CD at the end,... More

Lonely Planet recommended him , so we chose to go with him. We go down to the shop and instead of someone at the office there is a sign up sheet. The sign up sheet says to come to the office between 4 -4:30. It was 4:12 and no one was there so we signed up and put our hostel... More

Valid customer, we sincerely apologize for this mishap. However there are a few things you and fellow travelers should bear in mind. First and foremost we are in the low season on the island which makes chances of tours going out slim. You are right in that we do need at least 4 passengers to go which isn't so easy... More

Our friends have used Carlos and highly recommended him, so we decided that we would use him as well. We walked down to the shop (as you will learn in Caye Caulker-you just book that day or before-this isn't book in advance months out kind of place... Go Slow!). Best times to reach them is 9:30-10:30a when the tour is... More

The catamaran snorkeling trip was one of the highlights of our trip. The sailing was great an on the way back we saw some manatees in the water that we were able to swim with. They even made a CD ROM of pictures from our actual trip. Carlos was an outstanding guide and we had a great time. I highly... More

Arriving at Hol Chan reserve, there were 15 other boats, generally smaller and uncovered, and with 8-12 tourist each. We had just arrived under sail in the largest and most comfortable boat present at the site, a wonderful catamaran with a large cabin, bath and kitchen, and stairs easily leading into the water. Later, with his wonderful selection of music... More

Carlos was awesome on our tour! We went with a group of people from our hotel and had so much fun. I was really really nervous at first because I have had a couple questionable ocean experiences. Carlos was so nice and talked me through everything. We went to five different spots to snorkel including swimming with nurse sharks and... More

I would highly recommend Carlos Tours - especially the catamaran - don't shop around just go to Carlos.

Carlos and Juan were great. They gave a very informative tour. Took us around the best parts and we even stopped at a detour place where we saw turtles. You can see nurse sharks, eels, sea urchins, sting rays, many different types of fish. The corals were really nice. Carlos gave great suggestions on where to eat in San Pedro.... More

We went on an awesome tour with Carlos Jr. He was incredibly professional and helpful as well as being very funny. We saw a huge variety of fish and coral and Carlos was incredibly knowledgeable about them all. I highly recommend this tour.

Carlos tours is a really professional company. I had the pleasure to meet Carlos he's really a nice person. In the full day trip we went to 3 different sites and you stop for lunch in San Pedro island (lunch is not included). By the end of the tour they offer fresh fruit and rum. The company was excellent and... More
