Full description

Upon arriving at Tres Palos Lagoon, you will board a private, typical motorboat to begin a breathtaking exploration of the lagoon where many exotic species of tropical birds call this sanctuary their home.

See mangrove tunnels, a natural floating garden of wild flowers, visit a turtle preservation camp, adopt a baby turtle, release it to the ocean and much more. Your tour will leave right from the lobby of your hotel, where your friendly, fun loving and knowledgeable tour guide will pick you up with a sign with your name written on it.

The tour will head south along the coast in route to Tres Palos Lagoon, approximately 45 minutes from your hotel.

Before getting there, the tour will make a stop at a Sea Turtle Conservation Camp where, after being explained about their mission to preserve this endangered species, you will proceed to a baby turtle liberation. On arrival at the lagoon, you will board a typical motorboat for a cruise of no less than 1-hour through the lagoon. This sanctuary will be home to many species of exotic birds.

See mangrove tunnels, virgin lagoons and a natural garden of wild flowers during the cruise. This will be a rare opportunity to explore this type of tropical nature preserve.

Begin your tour admiring the mango trees, the coconut and palm groves as well as the delicate water hyacinths floating along the shores. There will also be a bird sanctuary home to gray and white herons, pelicans, marabous, storks and more. 

After the lagoon ride, go for lunch where you will savor the internationally renowned Pescado a la Talla, charcoal chicken or Mexican cuisine, (the Pescado a la Talla has become a must for the Mexican tourist in Acapulco).

After lunch, walk along the lagoon side or go to the ocean beach which will be within walking distance.
