Aldo's tours in Sian Ka'an are unlike most in Riviera Maya. Most tours cram as many people in as possible, making for a less than desirable experience to say the least. Aldo's tours have very limited space, in fact, it was just my wife and...More

I have emailed "visit sankaan twice about rates/availability in October 2017. I have not heard anything in return. Does anyone have pointers of how to reach them? If they're supposed to be the best they don't seem to be interested in booking future trips. :(

I would just be patient and reach out again in a few days if you haven't heard back. It's just Aldo and his wife so they may have been busy the past few days :)
