Amazing gift I offered my boyfriend. We were just 2 taking this tour and the beach was completely empty. It was such a romantic time! Lupita picked us up at the hotel and was really nice, talkative and helpful! The person who took us for the horse ride was very kind too and took nice pictures of us. We ended up releasing the baby turtles that were born a day before and tLupita showed us a video on how to preserve turtles by simply adapting our habits on the beach before releasing them. Overall, the experience was great and I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to try. Again a special thank you to Lupita who has been really kind and helpful.
Juan and Roger were great tour guides! Very knowledgeable of areas birds, culture.
Tour guide was awesome. The releasing the turtles into the Pacific Ocean was an incredible experience, then later we did the horseback riding and it was a treat!. This was my first time riding and the Sammy and Jose the guides put me at ease and constantly checking to make sure I was ok. Definitely will be fondly remembered and recommended. Nothing is better than riding a horse and releasing a baby turtle along the sandy beaches in Acapulco! .... Well, maybe a cold beer at the end of it, but do yourself a favor and do this tour!
The tourguides spoke English well and were very friendly!! The experience was great and definitely worth it. After our turtle release and horseback riding, our tour guide recommended us a local taco restaurant and dropped us off there! Overall great experience!! Thank you!
This was a fantastic tour. We enjoyed a relaxing ride on the horses along the beach, and doing our part by releasing the most vulnerable baby turtles was a nice experience. Our tour guides were fantastic! Very funny and informative, they really know Acapulco well, and even took us to a great hole-in-the-wall restaurant that we might've missed! I will definitely do this again on our next trip!
