“A magical experience I will never forget!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

This was my first visit to Tulum. The best part of our trip was the guided adventure we experienced with Antonio. He and his 2 guides were so knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Our day of snorkeling was incredible words cannot describe. We were immersed in natures glory. We dove deep into a Mangrove bordered river and felt like we entered the earths core as we snorkeled in healing waters of the underground Cenotes. We explored beautiful coral reefs and marine life in the turquoise ocean. We watched in awe as Antonio scurried up a palm tree for a coconut. We drank it's water and ate the fresh young coconut. We sucked out the juice of ripe mangos and ended our magical day at a delicious local restaurant in town. It was a day filled with the beauty and healing energy of nature at its best. It was transformative. Our guides kept us safe and protected, made us laugh and filled our minds with new respect & understanding of this beautiful place. Mochas Gracias Antonio, Ramone & Miguel. We will never forget you or our magical experience. We will be back!!
Warmest Regards,
Roey & Kim

“Beautiful country shown by beautiful people”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

I spent an incredible day with Antonio and Jessica, exploring the reef and the cenotes of the area. It was just me on the tour so I was very lucky to have my own personal tour guides! Not only are Antonio and Jessica very knowledgeable about the area and the relevant trees, birds and fish, they are truly warm, lovely, kind people who evidently care deeply about the environment. Being with them for the day is an educational and refreshing experience.

I went on this tour because of the recommendations on TripAdvisor and am extremely happy that I did - it was a real highlight of my trip to Mexico!

“Two Incredible Days, Gems of Tulum!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

My family of four spent two consecutive days with Antonio and Jessica. It is hard to say much else that hasn't already been said many times before. Our first day was in the Sian Ka'an kayaking throughout the mangroves. Our day started early with a healthy breakfast of fruit, nuts, coffee, and amazing homemade tamales. Their knowledge and love for the environment makes the Tour so much more special, they truly are trying to make a difference. Great photographers, as they pointed out and took shots of many birds along the way. We all enjoyed the clay bathing on the first rest stop, nature's sunblock! We were covered! From there after kayaking we travelled further into the Biosphere for lunch on a remote beach, wonderful and homemade. HAd coconut water for the first time. We then travelled to a beautiful open cenote just north of the Biosphere arch for a great swim and snorkel. An awesome way to refresh and finish the day. Most would want a rest day the next day, but not us. Our next adventure day was the Reef and Cenote Snorkel Tour. We started early, the wonderful breakfast again, then began the day at Casa Cenote. Being early we were the only folks there- beautiful (saw young tarpon). We attempted to snorkel out at the Reef, but the wind would not cooperate, making it too rough. No worries, we then made to several more cenotes that day - the highlight being one of the most beautiful cave cenotes, Cenote Pet Cemetary. A true life experience! After several other small cenotes, we broke for a late lunch and called it a day. After two full days exploring together, my family and I consider Antonio and Jessica our dear friends in Tulum. Mucho Gracias! We will return soon and will see you again for sure for more exploring.

“Amazing Day: Natural Born Tour guides”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We had an amazing day with Antonio and Jessica, they are extremly friendly and the tour was as individual as you could imagine. We went kayaking in Sian Ka'an, visited a cenote and even swam out all the way from the beach to an unbelievably wonderful reef. If you have the chance to make a trip with this couple do not hesitate!

“Memorable day exploring!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Typically our family loves to explore on our own, but with only a week in Tulum we decided to take a tour to more easily get to know the area and the Mayan culture. We are so glad we did! Antonio and Jessica are fantastic guides - they mange that difficult balance of friendliness, knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism. Difficult to do when you are together for 12 hours straight! Highly recommend the Jungle Birding tour and the trip to the Punta Laguna Monkey Reserve, both in local Mayan communities. Great experience!
