“Phenomenal guide , HIGHLY Recommended!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Mario is absolutely one of the best professionals I have ever met in the travel/tourism industry. I know this sounds very over the top, but he really deserves all the wonderful things everyone says about him. We enjoyed a deep sea fishing tour with him while we were in town for a day on a cruise. The fishing part was horrible - no fish, everyone green with sea sickness, tiny boat. It is to Mario's credit that despite the fishing not working out, this was our favorite part of the 2 week cruise. Having no luck with fishing, we called it quits and Mario took us to a lovely little bay for snorkeling. For a good while we 4 were the only ones there until a giant boat showed up with maybe 100 people who mobbed the beach and ocean. But nevertheless, Mario was swimming around, pointing out different fish, playing photographer and setting us up for fun/memorable photos in and out of the water.

We have often talked about going back to Huatulco just to do another tour with Mario. At the end of the tour he makes you feel like an old friend. Book a tour with him, you will have a fantastic time!

“Mario Cobos is a fantastic guide!”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Our family went on two Huatulco excursions with Mario Cobos. The first was a birdwatching trip that went from Tangolunda to the village of Pluma Hidalgo in the Sierra Madres. We saw many excellent birds and experienced the real Mexico! Mario's enthusiasm and flexibility were absolutely perfect. The second trip was a bay tour that included supreme snorkelling in two of Huatulco's best bays. It was capped off with a grilled Roosterfish lunch on the beach at St. Augistin. Mario tailored both trips to our needs making the trips the highlights of our visit to Mexico. Mario's knowledge, personal attention, compassion and enthusiasm were wonderful. When we return, we will definitely use the services of our Mexican friend - Super Mario!

“The best way to experience Huatulco”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

In Jan. my husband and I spent two weeks in Huatulco along with my sisters and their husbands. The best two days of the trip were spent touring the bays with Mario Cobos.
Mario is a knowledgeable and caring guide who takes pride in making your tour enjoyable.
We saw whales, dolphins, turtles and mantas. We caught fish and had it prepared for our lunch in a palapa restaurant on beautiful San Augustin beach. Mario took us snorkeling and found a Pufferfish and Sea Cucumber for us to hold. We visited the secluded La India beach to swim and snorkel. The tour is magical. Don't miss it.

Mario took us on a fantastic tour. My father has trouble walking, so we didn't want to go on one of the hotel tours with 50 other people and a microphone blasting in your ear. Mario was fantastic!! His English is very good and he is very knowledgeable, fun and energetic. He customized the tour so that my Dad could enjoy himself and not worry. I tried emailing him a couple of times, but there was a problem with email correspondence, so I just phoned him when we got there. Thanks, Mario!!
