What people are saying about Puerto Escondido

Great excursion! We saw HUNDREDS OF DOLPHINS!!! It was completely insane, in the best way. I had no idea they traveled in such enormous pods. We also saw a couple of humpback whales (!!!), seat turtles, manta rays, and even sea snakes! I highly recommend this activity. Just make sure you use the bathroom before you get on the boat because it's a small speedboat and you will be on it for 3+ hours!

Picked up at hotel on time. Only the 4 of us on trip. Lovely ride on lake and river seeing many different birds. Guides were really helpful and had books to show us the birds in different languages. Stopped at fishing boats who showed us their catches. Beach was huge and deserted. Massive surf. Just had a coffee and coco..not great. Superb trip, highly recommend

Endless dolphins!! And turtles in the middle of the sea, and stingrays performing tricks especially for us... wonderful! The guide was also very informative and friendly. Great Tour!!

Nice tour with a great guide and lots of nature observations. The communication worked great beforehand

Soooo worth it!!! Turtles, Stingrays, Sharks, Dolphins AND whales!!!!
