What people are saying about Acapulco

A great discovery. Uplifting

This excursion gave us a lot of information on this magnificent country. It was very interesting to listen to our guide Rudy. Thank you Rudy, for your knowledge and your love for your country that you have transmitted to us. Your organization was perfect and very professional. It was very magical to participate in the release of the cute little turtles. My son was delighted, he who loves animals :-) The meal was super good. Eating freshly grilled fish on a beach watching the waves - just a dream! Followed by a little nap in the hammock. If that's not the holidays !!! Successful vacation with Rudy! A change of scenery, a discovery, uplifting and fun. Thank you Rudy :-) We will come back to Acapulco one day :-)))))

A very enjoyable day, especially the turtle release.

A quick tour of the witchcraft market, which was not scheduled, but was an apology for a late start. On to the Lagoon tour boat to see the various birds. A stop to see the woman who makes mud packs and a Coco Loco, and then a stop for a swim to wash off the mud. and get closer to some of the birds. Off the boat and a stop for food and a drink, and then the turtle release at the same place. Then dropped back at the hotel. All very enjoyable with a couple of good guides.

Girl Guides meet baby turtles!

We were a group of 12 so had a private tour. Rudy and Poncho were fantastic guides from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble, they went out of their way to make sure that we were able to release baby turtles even though we were not there at the peak time of year. Visiting the market and seeing all the fruits was a bonus. All in all it was a brilliant introduction not just to Acapulco but to Mexico. Highly recommended!

Awesome Coyuca Lagoon Tour

The baby turtle release was my favorite part of the excursion but the ride by the Coyuca Lagoon was an appreciated part of the tour as well. The food was very tasty and even though the Coco-Loco was just a little strong for my taste, it was pretty good. Arturo our guide was always very nice with our group and replied to my questions every time, he was very friendly and courteous all in all a very recommendable tour any time!!!

perfect way to experience Acapulco in a small group. As we were only a party of 6, wishes and reroutings of our tour could be handled more generoulsy. Thanks again for the adjustment to see the cliffdivers on top of seeing the baby turtles. We had a wonderful day.
