A magical day releasing turtles and cruising the Coyuca lagoon
Rita_L, Jan 2023
The turtle release of course was our favorite excursion on this trip! Jesus and Jose Mario were GREAT guides. It was a real pleasure to meet Carlos and see his efforts for saving turtles. Our lagoon experience with our boat captain Arturo was incredible as well. What a magical day for us! Thank you so much! Mark y Rita
Horrible tour - stay away
Shafiq_J, Jun 2021
The drovers were great but the end points (boat tour, turtle release and restaurant) were very suspect. The turtle release seemed more like a guy taking advantage of tourism As opposed to an actual conservatory. The boat tour was all of 15 minutes through a lagoon encompassed by poverty. Ive been touring MX for 20 years and this was a sad tour. Not worth the money.
Great trip

Excellent. We had a great time. Rudy and Roger were going to do our trip together but we had a few people cancel from our group so we decided to just take Roger. It was super. He was very attentive and knew all the ins and outs of everywhere we went. We were very well taken care of all day. First we went to the Centro Market. He parked and walked us around, showing and tasting things as we went. He event bought me a souvenir!!! We ate fresh fruits, breads, etc. all before continuing to the lagoon. One there, we boarded a small boat with a few other couples and headed down the driver. Having Roger participate with us was like having our own personal guide. After swimming in the river and enjoying time together, we headed to a local restaurant for lunch. As it was very local, Roger helped with our menu selections. Then, our private turtle release. It was fantastic!! Everything was great. Here's the bonus: once you're back home, within a day or so, Rudy and Roger send you a link to all the photos they took of your trip. FREE!! What a wonderful touch. I highly recommend this trip and Rudy and Roger!!

We had such a great time during our Lucho Libre experience with Rudy that we chose to go on another one of his amazing tours in Acapulco. During this trip, we were able to learn more about the culture of the region both present and past. We also were able to enjoy natural beauty and scenery. My wife's favorite part of the excursion was releasing the baby turtles. We would definitely recommend Rudy to anyone for any needs that you have in Acapulco. He is able to take pictures and record videos so that you can have the memories available to you for your lifetime.

I am an outdoor person and I absolutely loved this tour, gettion out of the city to see the flora and fauna of the lagoon was by far the most pleasant experience of my trip to Acapulco. The beach was amazing, so clean and long. Releasing the baby turtles was a treat. They were so cute. The meal on the beach was delicious, eating it practically on the beach was fantasticl. Loved this tour. Highly recommend it.
Liberación de torturgas
Cecilia_C, Jul 2023
Fue muy buena experiencia, conocí un lugar nuevo; fuimos a la Barra y la laguna de Coyuca. Disfruté mucho la liberación de tortugas recién nacidas, muy hermosas. De igual forma, me gustó mucho el paseo en lancha por la laguna y saber que ahí se grabó Rambo 2 jajaja
