What people are saying about Puerto Aventuras

After a bumpy start at the check point in Playa del Carmen with waiting time, our tour guide Adrian, on the other hand, was super nice, warm and accommodating! We had an incredibly great stay in Bacalar with a great boat trip and several stops on the lake. The long journey was more than worth it!

Fantastic tour, got to see manatees , crocodiles , many species of exotic birds, dolphins turtles and even Iguanas! The boat ride took us all the way through the lagoon and mangroves to the Carribean Sea. Lea is a super friendly guide! I definitely recommend taking this tour!

The excursion is very well organized and Léa is really adorable! She passed on her knowledge to us with passion. The nature reserve is really beautiful, it's a must when you go to Tulum! I recommend it without hesitation.
