What people are saying about Nichupté Lagoon

I had a wonderful time during this sunrise kayak experience. The guide Andres was really knowledgable and explained a lot around the wildlife that lives in this area. He spotted and pointed at a lot of different animals and birds, even at a crocodile that I'm not sure how he saw in the first place! I actually really appreciated seeing that he picked up some trash he found while we were kayaking around showing that he actually cares about the environment. He took some pictures of us and a flock of Flamingos and sent us the pictures within hours of the the end of the activity. Overall I would highly recommend this activity to anyone wanting to experience Cancun outside of the party scene. This was such an incredible way to start off the day!

MUST DO !!! I promise you won’t regret and it’s worth every penny!!! Haime and Leo both are amazing! They are so professional and funny at the same time !!! I was a bit nervous going up parasailing but they both made my experience so special! I recommend to purchase the video and pictures pack ( we got about 80 pictures and 1 video) just make sure not to curse when you start going up like me , the go-pro camera didn’t miss a single word LOL 😂

Fantastic experience, this was our first time in Cancun and first time parasailing. The value for your money for this excursion is fantastic. The pick up / drop off service is so smooth! The guys on the boat with us were so nice yet professional! We will definitely be using this company when we return and would highly recommend!

We had a lovely trip with Andres.. very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and very friendly and welcoming. Very good English. Thank you!

Excellent lots of experience of the people in charge
