Don’t think twice- book it now!!

WORTH EVERY PENNY!! This was by far the highlight of our vacation. Our guide, Genesis and driver, Moises were the absolute best! Getting from the boat to the meeting place wasn’t too bad— Moises called and helped us when we got turned around. The hour drive to Bacalar went by in a snap due to Genesis telling us all about his culture and history of the town- very interesting— even my kids enjoyed his stories. Once we got to Bacalar, we went on the boat and went to the most beautiful lagoon— the fresh water was crystal clear and was the perfect temperature. Genesis joined us to swim and showed us around the lagoon, which was awesome. After about an hour swim there, we headed to lunch for the absolute BEST TACOS. My kids are still raving about these tacos! We then were taken to grab some fresh fruit along the side of the road and enjoyed the best tasting pineapple we’ve ever had- alongside other yummy fruits! They got us back to the port with an hour or so to spare— we never were concerned about missing our boarding time. We will absolutely be booking another excursion when we come back to Costa Maya— and will request Genesis and Moises as our guides! Thank you two for making our trip so memorable!

Bacalar is beautiful, Chac Ek is top shelf

I loved this excursion to Bacalar the 7 colors lagoon. Our driver Moises met us outside the Costa Maya port which is a walk versus those booked through the cruises but once we got there we were offered an extra option which we declined. Moises drove us to Bacalar telling us a lot about the area and answering all my questions. Once there we got on the boat with the captain (forgot his name, nice guy who used to live in US, Oregon). He took us to multiple locations within the lagoon offered drinks and snacks. We chose to swim in pirate channel. It was beautiful and clear. When we got back on he took us back to the spot where we met Moises. Then we went to El Taco Loco. I cannot say enough good things about the food here. Get the pork tacos they are amazing. Then on the way back we stopped in Pineapple Town for a fresh snack before making our way back to the port. This company may be small but they 100% know how to treat their customers. This is one activity that I would book again. We even got a gift of a magnet in the shape of a sea turtle. Book your excursion with them soon!

We were picked up from the port that our cruise ship stopped in and taken to the bacalar lagoon. It was absolutely gorgeous and refreshing to swim in. Afterwards they took us to the best taco restaurant I’ve ever been to. Tino was a great guide! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

INCREDIBLE DAY! We had Saul as our driver and Carolina as our tour guide. We didn’t realize it was a private tour, which was perfect because we were able to do everything that was planned and more! Carolina was so incredible that we already booked another tour for our next trip to Costa Maya!

The trip was amazing. They met us exactly where they said they would. We had a great van to take us to the lagoon. We stopped at a fruit stand for fresh fruit. The boat ride in the lagoon was amazing and relaxing. Then lunch at the taco restaurant was great. Back to the port with plenty of time to shop. Would do it again!

Beautiful Bacalar - MUST SEE
Stephanie_D
, Feb 2022
Bacalar Lagoon is simply stunning. The photos don't do it justice. Our guide picked us up at the cruise port. We rode in a clean, air-conditioned van to the place where we would get our boat. Genesis was our guide and he was friendly and knowledgeable. He explained to us about the area and the cenotes in the lake/lagoon. He also made sure we had drinks and snacks. There was an opportunity to get in the water at one point, but it was a very windy day so no one wanted to get off the boat. After a beautiful and relaxing boat ride, we went to lunch (included) at a local restaurant where the tacos were fresh and delicious. We also stopped at a roadside stall and were able to taste fresh pineapple (included). It was a great day full of beautiful sights.

Great trip for costa maya

These guys were fabulous. Very informative. Took us to a great lunch and even stopped and got us some avocados! These avocados were the size of a large mango. Growing the seed from it now! Trip was a little long to the lagoon (1-1/2 hour)but the lagoon trip was very nice. Can’t swim in the cenotes but the boat takes you over them. Great trip for costa maya. We returned in plenty of time to get back on the ship.

From the day I booked my trip to the very end I was pleased with the friendly service. I requested Tino as I saw many others had a great experience with him and they weren’t wrong. Tino and Saul were outstanding and took care of my boyfriend and I from beginning to end. I 10/10 recommend booking this with them. They made sure we had plenty of time to see everything, swim, take pictures, eat the most incredible tacos, and even the fresh fruit stands. I will definitely be booking with them again!

Seven colors lagoon excursion at Costa Maya.
Skylerfamily
, Feb 2020
Leo and Moises gave our small group a wonderful introduction to their proud culture and natural wonders on this excursion to the seven colors lagoon. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides who should deserve your new and repeated business as they deliver a product that can not be matched by larger bus tour companies. Felt very safe and cared for right off the cruise ship at Costa Maya. They never asked for tip at any point and therefore it made my gratuities more appreciated at the end for me and for them. Please give them your consideration and business.

The transportation was modern, clean and big enough for our family group of 10. Our guide Tito was personable and knowledgeable. There were plenty of snacks and beverages aboard the boat and the lunch tacos were very good. Unfortunately, he received a call about his daughter and Tito had to leave to go home straight after lunch. We only saw the stromatolites from about 40 feet away. We would have liked a closer look. Perhaps there was a conservation issue with going closer. We didn't get the mud pack experience. Not sure whether we saw the pirate channel. We did swim in shallow water but it wasn't describes as a channel , nor did it look like one.
