What people are saying about Puerto Morelos

If you are looking for a great experience Croco Cun is the place to visit. What a cool little gem this is. We enjoyed the interaction with all the animals and the people were all so friendly. The guides are very knowledgeable and can answer questions in both Spanish and English. And the best part is that this is not a regular zoo, it is a sanctuary for rescued animals. I would highly recommend.

Had a great time w the locals in Puerto Morelos. Our guide was easy too comprehend and his instructions was easy too follow and he made sure too keep us together. He also told us a lot of great info about the 2nd largest reef in the world. I recommend this excursion or activity too anyone that wants too experience Mexico outside of Cancun and experience the now culture and locals in person.

Perfect trip - we loved the catamaran ride and snorkel with all the fishes. Food was top class (we had a premium package - worth it). Would surely recommend and do it again when Im back to Mexico.

José Gill an excellent guide and birder. It’s a long trek but at a good pace. About 45 species seen. Highlight seeing a red capped manakin. Take lots of water. Mosquitoes are plentiful!

Excellent service from start to finish.

Antonio was our guide and was extremely knowledgeable. He managed to find 40 bird species for us. Highly would recommend this trip.
