What people are saying about Playa del Carmen

This was the absolute best tour if you are interested in birds at all. My husband’s hobby is bird photography and this was probably his favorite part of our honeymoon. The driver, Axel, and the guide, Lope, were professional and very friendly! We ended up seeing 52 different bird species in the morning and were provided a delicious homemade breakfast. If we were back in the Cancún area I am sure we would do the tour again!

This was the best shuttle service we have ever had in Cancun. From the time we walked out of the airport, found our driver with our name placard and arrived at our hotel less than 40 minutes passed. Driver was friendly and van was sparkling clean

Saw a lot of beautiful birds. The guide spoke moderate English but did his best. Had a super morning. We found it very expensive, not quite in proportion to the activity

Lugo was extremely knowledgeable and determined for us to see as many local birds as possible. Noe was an excellent driver and took really good care of us.

well organized, car was there with sign and had the same driver on return. great experience.
