Fantastic island Activity

Fun and informative tour amongst the stunning scenery of the Holbox mangroves. The tour guide was very informative and passionate about the island ecosystem. The tour is best if you're relatively fit, as kayaking against an ocean current can be difficult if you're not experienced.

Paddling with local wildlife

We had a great time learning how to kayak (only so well, ha) and experiencing the beauty of the mangrove trees and the ría, as our guide Willi explained, that houses wildlife of all kinds. We saw sandpipers and egrets, herons, and even a crocodile! Willi was a great guide. I highly recommend this outing. Please note that it’s not flamingo season until Spring/summer, but we still had a great time and got a good arm work out in too!

We truly enjoyed our experience with VIP tours. Willi was our guide for the morning. He was knowledgeable, passionate about his island and very professional. We had door to door service to and from the kayaks, which was a welcomed treat after days of walking the island. When they were running late, we were informed the shuttle was running a couple minutes late and they came just two minutes later. Everyone we worked with were professional and helpful. I would highly recommend them.

We had a great time kayaking in the early morning through the mangroves with our guide Willie. He was so knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife and we learned a lot from him. He was very accommodating with our questions and provided us with opportunities to get up close to the flora and fauna of the island. Cant recommend this tour enough. Very safe, professional and was ultimately a great experience. Thanks!
