Safe!
The 4 of us (2 adults, 2 kids) felt really well taken care of during the drive, boatride and other activities. Alejandro was very knowledgable and friendly, great with kids and overall a positive guide. He’s someone who takes great pride of his work and home and it was just lovely to witness his passion. Fear not, he’s not extra by any means.

Also the nature is amazing. A great day trip from PE.

Tour through mangroves, lagoons, luminescence, flowers, birds by boat
Feb 2020 • Friends
This was a spectacular launch trip through mangrove islands amidst several different species of trees and bushes populated with many different tropical birds across lagoons and along mysterious canal like water passages capped by a wonderful lunch of local fish and shrimp prepared at a small island community kitchen that was beyond delicious and savory. Our guide, Mauricio Bautista, related the various species of trees and wildlife with added information about uses by islanders with such accuracy that the tour was comparable to a class excursion while at the same time providing the exciting commentary that made the trip an electrifying adventure, and the boat capitaine, Raul, added to trip with great navigation and operation and occasional advice to us and Mauricio with special maneuvering through the mangrove passages and through the lagoons particularly during the luminescence part of the adventure at night. We highly recommend this adventure tour in the Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico.

Fantastic tour company with tons of local knowledge!!!
We had a great time - we initially booked the Chacahua lagoons tour and then added a whale watching trip and also a surfing lesson. The Chacahua tour with tour guide Abisai was fantastic. It really is an unbelievable place with lots of local secrets and mysteries. The guide explained everything very well and made sure we understood everything we saw and experienced!

We also went on a whale watching trip which was fun and then had a very cool surfing lesson with Roger. It was our first time surfing and he really helped us out and got us to stand and ride a bunch of waves.

Puerto Escondido is a close knit community and Valfred knows it all. Alejandro knows everyone and even helped us find great local restaurants.

Chachua Lagoons National Park Day Trip
We took the afternoon Chachua Lagoons National Park Day Trip from Puerto
Escondido with my wife and two adult children and it was fanstic! Mauricio and René we’re both professional and very informative the whole trip. We were picked up from our accommodation on time and were treated to 5 star service the entire day. The lagoons are beautiful and we were fortunate to catch the sunset at the lighthouse, as well as enjoy the bioilluminesece on return. Mauricio went out of his way to ensure we had vegetarian options when we stopped for dinner which was greatly appreciated. We would recommend this trip to anyone looking to experience nature when staying in the Puerto Escondido area!

Super!
Oct 2018 • Friends
Chely and Abisai were great! Chely, with whom we booked the tour, explained all the details of the trip: what to bring, what to expect, etc. Abisai, her son, is a young and wonderful tour guide. He was caring, helpful and very informative. We were a small group of only 4 people and it felt more like a group of friends then a touristic experience. The boat captain and his helper (his young son Exa) were also fantastic and the experience of swimming in the luminescent laggon at night was unforgetable.Our tour to the Chacahua lagoons was truly magical! Velfred Tours seems to operate sustainalable touristic experiences that support local communities and their traditions. Highly recommended. - Dulce and Yoko

Three Great Trips
Feb 2018 • Couples
We did the following: Chacahua Lagoons National Park Day Trip, Boat Trip to see Dolphins, Turtles and Whales, and Atotonilco Horse Back Riding. All trips were well organized and we had great drivers and English speaking guides, who were eager to make sure we had a wonderful time. Alejandro, his family and the staff at this agency will bend over backwards to make it possible for you to do the tours you want. We highly recommend getting in touch with these people as soon as you arrive so that they can help you have wonderful memories of your vacation in Peurto Escondido.

Biodiversity at its best!
Dec 2017 • Friends
We went on the Excursiones Turísticas de Valfred tour to visit the lagunas de Chacahua and I am very happy that we did this all day tour! During our stay in Mexico we visited various natural landmarks and national parks in Mexico, I have to say the lagunas de Chacahua were in my top 3 of visited sites! The tour itself last from 1:00pm until about 9:00pm, we arrived back at our hotel around 10:00pm. I was very impressed that our tour guide and boat driver dedicated their entire day to us. Abelardo was our guide and he was a very positive and upbeat guide who had a lot to say about his native Puerto Escondido, the history, fauna and landscape of Oaxaca in particular of the lagunas. On our way to the lagunas we stopped at a small stand on the highway where we tasted local products, like tostadas de coco, chile and cacahuate free of charge :) During our tour of the lagunas I almost felt like I was in South America and had no idea that such places existed in Mexico. We saw numerous kind of bird species, insects and we even caught a glimpse of a crocodile. We also went to the beach for a few hours where we had time to relax and lie on the beach and have some dinner. At sunset we took a boat to the Faro (lighthouse) side of the lagoon right on the coast to watch the sunset, it was beautiful :) We hoped for a less than bright moon but unfortunately it was almost a full moon for which reason we could not see the luminescence in the water very well, however Abe, our guide, bravely dove into the water and made it possible for us to see some light, A+ for effort!

Furthermore, I was able to book my trip from abroad via E-mail with Alejandro Valdivia who was replied promptly to my inquiries and made it very easy to book from overseas.

I highly recommend taking this tour and seeing the lagunas while in Oaxaca.

Wonderful experience!
Oct 2017 • Couples
We were in pe in October and went on the chacahua lagoon day into evening tour. Our guide was Alejandro and I can only reiterate what irina and other reviewers have already said. The tour was great and Alejandro and the boat captain made sure we experienced the lagoon bioluminescence - searching the narrow channels in the dark - magical!
Alex is completely bilingual and switched effortlessly between English and Spanish. Great for those of us trying to learn Spanish and the one Spanish only speaker in the group.
A lovely day ( don’t forget bug spray and long pants for the evening!) and I wish we had gone on another tour with Alex!
Felice navidad Alex from robin and bob in whistler Canada!!
