  • A nice tour, but scandalous duration; 800 pesos P.P. (also for a child). First they asked 900 pesos, but luckily we got something discount. Unkind people. My advice is to book the tour in advance, so there may be some more negotiating space, or if possible book a tour in Celestun or Bacalar. We drove with our rental car quite a few kilometers and booked a total of 4 boat trips of each over 2 hours. The price varied nicely, while they were all qualitatively the same. In Bacalar, the price was 250 pesos p.p. (without any chamferations), Celestun 300 p.p. (with a finish) and Rio Lagortos a private boat for 1200 (room for 6 pers.)

  • Great day in Sian Kaan via Paseotours, with Alina! Very professional organization (the van picked us up from the hotel, we were treated to cookies, water, sandwich and lunch in a small buffet restaurant, very good). The day in the nature reserve was memorable! I highly recommend this excursion to animal and nature lovers! Thank you again to Alina for her sympathy and this great discovery!
