    We arranged an airport shuttle, the turtle release tour and the this tour with Luis de la Maza. I am very impressed with the courtesy, timeliness and enjoyable conversations that we had with his employees. For the Archaeological tour, our guide was Paco (Frank). What an absolute gem! We were a total of 7, (4 from our party and another party of 3) and we were picked up in a very comfortable (and cool) mini bus. The trip to Xihuacan was about 40 minutes from Zihua and Paco filled the time with interesting facts about Mexican culture and history. He said that he has 35 years as a certified tour guide and he could answer every question we asked - so impressed! Our first stop was at the museum. Paco went into great detail about the exhibit. His Mexican pride and enthusiasm emanated from his fascinating talks. From there, we walked to the ballfields and the temple. (I suggest sunscreen and bug spray as you will be walking through grassy areas and the rest of the site tour is unshaded.) It was very easy to navigate the temple with its flat, modern walkways and wide stairways. We then went into La Chole for some local sights, including a demonstration on cigar making and a brief visit to its local church. Lunch was at a roadside restaurant and was a great time to relax and find out more about our fellow travelers. I had a traditional beef dish and my sister had chicken fajitas, both of which were delicious. The hand made tortillas were to die for! Having mentioned that we were interested in getting some silver jewelry, Paco took us on a pit stop to one of the Zihua's jewelers. Paco is so accommodating, knowledgable and spoke excellent English and he certainly made this the most enjoyable tour.

    Very informative trip with Luis. We learned a great deal about Zihua and Ixtapa. We also did the turtle release with Francisco who entertained us with his stories all the way to the release site. We also went snorkeling with Luis and found it very fun and informative. We also went horseback riding and enjoyed that as well. Luis was an enjoyable, knowledgeable guide and we would not hesitate to recommend him again. He made our entire trip very enjoyable.

    This central market trip and cooking class was amazing! Our guides were kind, gracias, and knowledgeable. It was a great experience walking through the Central Market and visiting the Museo de Coco. Their beautiful outdoor kitchen was a great experience to be able to cook in and the meal we prepared was delicious!! I highly recommend this excursion!!

    We went with Luis to the hotel from the airport and back to the airport. Also, while in Ixtapa, Luis took us on an amazon fishing trip. All of his staff were friendly and punctual. He is very understanding and caring and will do whatever you need. 100% recommend!!!

    What an amazing experience! Everything was taken care of with ease. We were picked up on time at our hotel by an English speaking driver and smoothly transferred to the ranch. The horses were well trained and sweet. Ramon, our guide, allowed us to enjoy the ride and even try new skills. Plus, he had a great sense of humor. I highly recommend horseback riding on the beach in Playa Largo!

    Carlos was wonderful - he went above and beyond what was described in the tour information! We stopped to buy freshly ground coffee, then he took us to Mercado Municipal and showed us right where to go to get what we needed.
    His knowledge of the area and the things he showed us was amazing!
    The four of us had a great day with Carlos!

    Truthfully was not expecting much as it was a 6 hour excursion and other than an hour of snorkelling and lunch, I was honestly not sure how the time would go. Kids tell me snorkelling was OK but definitely not like Akumel. Lunch was just OK but the pina coladas and drinks we had to pay extra for were great.

    We found Zijuatenejo to be a lovely quiet town. If you’re looking to relax by the ocean, drink, have a massage and negotiate for trinkets, blankets and more you’ve found the right place. If you’re like us, and are also looking for adventure, you’ll need a tour guide. We ended up spending two days with Carlos and felt very safe and appreciated his flexibility and the fact that he had a “plan b” when “plan a” didn’t work out. His English is excellent and he’s full of great information and stories that will keep you entertained. He’s attentive to your needs and punctual.

    Fabulous tour! Luis is obviously so proud of his culture - it was a great time. Can't wait to do the monarch butterfly trip and Dios de Los Muertos!

    This was my first time touring an ancient city in Mexico, and it exceeded my expectations. The site is a newer excavation, with more to come. I most enjoyed learning the history of trade in Mexico between the people of the different neighboring regions.
    I highly recommend joining Ulises for this tour. He was so easy to coordinate with, we departed on time, and his enthusiasm for both the route and sites we saw were unparalleled. We were joined by his colleague Jennifer, who too was a delight and will be leading groups soon.
    Our tour of the museum, the pyramids, the ball field, and the ancient city was led by Eric, who was knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the land.
    Thank you for a fabulous day and the Spanish lessons, Ulises!

    We paid $25 usd each for our trip to ixtapa island. We took this same tour last year and boy there are changes. You get picked up from your hotel taken to the boats = the people putting you on and off the boats are asking for propinas or tips usually a few coins, not too bad , but it is both ways. Then we get to the island and say we would like to snorkel = we had our own gear but had to pay a snorkeling guide another 130 pesos per person.to go in with him. We finished snorkeling and went back to the restaurant that had lunch for us (included in the cost) then the server requests a tip, we gave 50 pesos for us two - there was a family on our tour that only tipped 20 pesos and the server showed us how unhappy he was with that. Then we get back to the hotel and tip the tour lady that took us (100 pesos). I was quite disappointed that after paying for a tour that everybody had their hand out. It is good to know up front that this is expected because I was not going to bring extra cash but did in case my hubby wanted extra drinks - which he did - and we tipped on each order. Be aware.
