Diego jumped to the rescue when another guide in town let us down. Some fine birding, which William continued in excellent fashion out in the mangroves by boat and then even early Christmas day by car. Professional, expert and caring.

Yes. We stayed in that area first and drove to Rio Lagartos. The roads were very good - the toll road is best to use. We thought it was an easy drive.
