Reviewed 31 December 2015 via mobile

Mario was highly recommended by a friend . Our experience exceeded all expectations ! From the time Mario picked my husband and me up for a boat , snorkeling and sightseeing trip we had an amazing time . His captain's boat was clean and well equipped with beverages and safety gear .
Within our first hour we saw a pod of dolphin , a whale family and a turtle.
Then Mario took us snorkeling and it was experience unlike any other we have ever had ---he swam with us , diving deep to show us natural sponge, puffer fish and anemones.
He and his captain also set up fishing rods and before lunch my husband reeled in a black tuna which was Specially prepared and which we enjoyed at lunch. Great guide for couples , families and groups . We will be back .

Thank anne d

My sister n law found this Mario on this site believing all the the good reviews. There were 4 of us and he charged us $60 each for a tour and a snorkelin trip. Turns out he wasted our whole day taking us to a bay where his friends oun a business. We were way overcharges for a few beers and a margarita, then he takes us to his house to look at his art work and then he gives us tamales and punch that supposedly his wife cooked.
When we were finished we thanked her and we were discussing how much to tip her , when Mario asked us if we wanted to pay for the food now or later. We were somewhat shocked because he never mentioned a fee. He charged us $64.00 for the snacks.
Then he took us to shopping area where he was the one charging( overcharged)
Don't be fooled by the positive posts, they are very suspicious

We went on the seven bay tour and really enjoyed seeing the different bays that make up Huatulco, as well as very pleasant San Agustin. Mario is a local and knows a little bit about everything and goes out of his way to please. My partner forgot to pack a swimsuit, Mario said no problem and took us to the hotel to fetch it, the whole bus accompanied us and no one complained!
If you want to support local enterprise, as opposed to tour operators, book with Mario and get to know him. He and his family are proud of their family owned business and go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay in Huatulco. His wife Conchita is also a fabulous cook, she makes the box lunches and receives people in thier home for Sunday lunch.

Did another 7 bay tour with Mario, he is knowledgeable, fun, and seems to know everyone in the Huatulco area. Money well spent, next time I am back with do any and all trips with Mario, you can't go wrong using him as a guide.

We spent a day with Mario and it was the best part of the trip! He took us to see 7 bays, fantastic lunch on the beach, snorkeling, fishing and watching porpoises and turtles close up. Mario went way beyond the call of duty and gave our daughter very personal attention and instruction. All I can say is that if you book a day trip with Mario, you will not be disappointed!!
