The people and the whales are the heart of this experience. Carlos and his wife (she is the chief cook for the 2 camps) are kind, funny, engaging and they set the tone for the whole experience: "If you are not happy you are wasting ...your life!" Carlos stated on our first meeting and this is the philosophy practiced at Kuyima. Everyone there takes that up and works hard to provide the best experience possible. Traveling with a Mexican owned and operated company is important to us. Kuyima has, as one other person noted, a great deal of flexibility- one of the other guests was an expert in Oyster fishing and we took an afternoon excursion to two local oyster farms. From the office in San Ignacio town to the daily boat trips, every necessity was provided for. All food and drink was included unless you are a big drinker (more than 2 beers per meal). The cabins are warm and comfy- not that there is much time to spend in them.
The guides are young and enthusiastic, the boatmen are fishermen who really know their stuff. Some hints: It can be windy and cool, take layers. If you like to snack, bring snacks. If you need back support to make the 20 min. (it can be rough) boat trip more comfy- bring one of those trail chairs. (see photo). Be sure to have water shoes or flip flops.More
