Mahahual Ecotours, founded in November 2013 by Victor Rosales, represents the culmination of over 16 years of his experience in the tourism industry. Victor’s journey commenced as a Scuba Diving Instructor, where he refined his skills across Mexico and various international locales. His global expeditions instilled a deep appreciation for the unique charm of the Yucatan Peninsula. Drawn to its enchantments, he returned to Mahahual after seven years, equipped with local knowledge, tourism expertise, and an unwavering passion for nature, intent on showcasing the best of Mexico to both residents and visitors.

Situated along the Caribbean Sea coast of Quintana Roo, Mexico, Mahahual, often dubbed the Hidden Gem of the Yucatan Peninsula, possesses a rich Maya heritage. Once a serene fishing village, Mahahual has evolved into a treasured refuge, attracting those who seek an escape from the bustling tourist centers of Cancun, Playa del Carmen, or Tulum. Here, chain hotels and towering structures yield to soft sandy beaches, verdant jungles, and the splendid expanse of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef just offshore. And indeed, fresh fish and authentic Mexican cuisine are staples. In Mahahual, the ideal antidote to the daily grind, you’ll find a haven to relax and disconnect.

If you’re a nature lover, Mahahual is a remarkable destination that calls out to you. Whether you’re drawn to birdwatching, snorkeling, scuba diving, jungle hikes, mangrove kayaking, or the enchantment of camping under the starry Caribbean skies, Mahahual caters to every outdoor passion.

Additionally, Mahahual boasts a strategic location – just a 40-minute drive to the captivating town of Bacalar, an hour’s journey to the ancient Chacchoben ruins, and a little over an hour’s drive to Xcalak, offering a multitude of incredible adventures.

Mahahual Ecotours provides a wide variety of day-tour options, perfect for those with a few hours to explore, as well as customizable multi-day/overnight expeditions designed for adventurers eager to embrace an authentic ‘back to nature’ experience.
