Lovely 3-4 hour trek through beautiful forest. Guide was very knowledge about animals and plants. Fantastic for parents but teens get less enthusiastic about it after 2 hours. Definitely recommend it.

Had a great morning with Sergio snorkelling off the beach at Manzanillo. Saw a variety of fish and corals. Was impressed with his eco-consciousness throughout the morning, particularly when he told two men who were standing on the corals in their fins trying to catch fish for their aquarium, that he would call the police if they didn't stop. We... More

The snorkel Trip was wonderfull, very big corals. After snorkeling we made a Kajak trip which was a big Adventure. Sergio loves nature, you can feel it when you are with him. He helped us when we had a Little car accident. A piece of a tree felt on our Motor hut. He waited with us until the man from... More

Met Sergio on the Manzanillo beach. Been wanting to snorkel even knowing the currents were strong and the visibility wasn't perfect. This was something we promised our son. Sergio was so accommodating. He helped our son who had never been before and was having a hard time at first and made him feel very comfortable and was a excellent teacher.... More

Sergio made this into a true adventure for our family. We hiked in the rain forest, but before that he gave us sugar cane, coconut water, guava, and star fruit to munch on--all on our walk through Manzanillo! We hiked, climbed to a cave above the ocean, sea kayaked, and explored the mangrove river in our kayaks. We ended the... More

I had a reservation with Segio on April. A month before our trip, I had to cancel the reservation. I called him and he told me that he was going to give me a full refund but that I had to wait a month. After a month I called him and he told me that he was going to do... More

Even though we were with Sergio for over 5 hours, the price was amazing! Sergio is awesome! We had a great time and even though the water wasnt very clear due to the weather, Sergio made it very pleasant. He is very knowledgable and entertaining Tour guide and he is always looking out for the best possible experience while we... More

Sergio was very friendly and laid back. We were delayed because we stopped for what we thought would be a quick lunch before the snorkeling, and it took an hour longer than we expected. He had no problem with that and was quick to respond to our emails. One of us was having some trouble with snorkeling, and he was... More

Back in November 2012, my wife, mother-in-law and I were referred to Sergio (shout-outs to Mar-Y-Sol Hostel owners of Manzanillo). Sergio went above and beyond the expectations, making sure that trips/tours were tailored to accommodate all of our individual likings. I'll say it now. You're going on a tour with a friend. Not just a guide. I won't talk about... More

My wife and I drove into town and asked a local for directions to Sergio's place. Sergio offered us coffee and spent the first 30 minutes casually chatting about the local area. We then walked along through the town sampling fruits straight from the trees of the local gardens. We walked into the forrest, saw some howler monkies, and made... More
