“Bring binoculars!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Three years ago we took a tour that included kayaking on the lagoon and fell in love with the wild birds and beauty of the lagoon. We just returned to find the lagoon still unspoiled and teeming with colorful birds. We aren't birders but this place is amazing.

“Gorgeous deserted beach, great food, great swimming”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

We went fishing and caught bonito which we had the chef at our hotel cook for us. It was fantastic, very meaty just like tuna, although our hotel owner turned her nose up at it! We had lunch at one of the enramadas on the beach, can't remember the name but it seemed to be the busiest and in the best spot, on the point at the end of the beach before the lagoon. The food was fantastic, simple fresh and spicy. A guy played sax for us and I asked him to play summertime which he did fantastically! Also bought a nice silver ring from a trader which my husband was convinced was not actually silver but so far my finger has not gone green! Very peaceful place to spend a few days, we loved it.

“Excellant Day Touring With Avi & Axel!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

As a group of 5 Canadians we wanted to experience the local sights and culture, however with limited spanish, amongst us we know the numbers to nine, can order beer, find a bano and greet people. Through a local contact we were introduced to Avi, we spent the day with him and his assistant Axel. As natives of the area, the boys were able to assist us on our day trip from Barra de Potosi. We had a 15 and 17 year old in our group and thought it would be a great experience for them to use the local transportation. On Avi's suggestion we ventured to Ixapta via the local transportation to Playa Linda Beach area, where there is a turtle, crocodiles and iguana refuge, this was pretty cool! We were able to feed the iguana's which was a neat experience. From there we toured back to Zihuatanejo to shop at the markets, they took us to the tourist markets as well as the local markets, this was interesting to experience! We checked out the bay and the boys explained the fishing boats as well as other interesting local facts. The day was a great experience overall! Avi's english is very good, it was a great learning for all of us, and the teenagers, our two and Axel, got to experience some cross training on english and spanish..... We would highly recommend Avi as a tour guide!

“Tour the lagoon”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We had a tour of the lagoon with Avi. What a beautiful and exciting morning. Avi takes you in his boat to the mangroves. We learned,and got to try our skills at throwing fishing nets and catching crabs. Avi knows the wildlife and the birds seem to know him. Afterwards we spent time on the expansive beach which is a gem

“Barra de Potosi Lagoon Tour”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Arrived at the beach location at the entrance to the Lagoon, with a warm welcome from Avi our tour guide who is very knowledgeable of the area and Eco-sensitive. The mangroves along the lagoon are home to many various bird species and fish. The tour was the highlight of our birding in the area and Avi is an excellent guide. We would highly recommend him for a two hour tour or all day trip in the Barra de Potosi Mexico area!
