Traveler Comments

Probably the sleeper hit of the trip. Kind, good people- Alejandro and Marco made absolutely every effort so we would have a great trip. They took us to many spots, we caught several types of fish and they knew everything about the mangroves -no question went unanswered. They love working the mangroves and we're very proud to share everything they knew. We dined on fresh caught Snook that evening. I would absolutely hire these guys again. What a fantastic day!
