  • If you want to experience a pleasant and quiet looking for "Harry" a boatman is well known in the area, we met nearby El Castillo, worse they can ask for it. I recommend it because took us in his boat out of the 9 bays with one much lower price than that charged some travel agencies; with the advantage of being able to carry water, snack and drinks without consuming more expensive as the big boats propose. We leave at least 2 hours before making it the tours more known by what they could see dolphins and turtles without problem, also did snorkeling on the Beach the Jicaral where indeed stayed a good part of the day completely alone. Harry led us to fish and then to a place where they cooked what they had trapped, is an animator excelnte and above all has great knowledge of the area as it is a native of the region. We had a full day of relaxation, laughter and adventure, it gave us time to take photos and enjoy without the pressure of a normal tour. THE HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! If you visit Huatulco, seek people like Harry, so we support the local economy and experience is unmatched.

  • A tour where you can see moves them to bays, snorquear, and swim. Don't expect much from the place where you get to eat. Ratio price / quantity - quality is not good. During the tray cto will appreciate dolphins and turtles. Very nice. Get the the big boat tour, it is better.
