Mahahual Ecotours was founded by Victor Rosales in November 2013. Victor has been in the tourism business for over 16 years. He began his career as a Scuba Diving Instructor working in Mexico and a few different countries around the world. After traveling and working abroad, he realized just how amazing the Yucatan Peninsula is. Seven years later, Victor decided to take his local knowledge, tourism experience, and love for nature back to Mahahual with the goal of sharing the best of Mexico with locals and tourists.
Mahahual is known as the Hidden Jewel of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is a small village rich in Maya culture tucked away on the Caribbean Sea coast of the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Previously a fishing village, Mahahual is now becoming a favorite of tourists looking to escape the loud over populated areas like Cancun, Playa del Carmen or Tulum. You won’t find chain hotels or high-rise buildings. Mahahual has soft sand beaches, dense jungle and just off the coast is the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. Did we mention fresh fish and authentic Mexican food? Mahahual is the perfect place to disconnect from everyday life.
If you are fan of nature Mahahual is a spectacular place to visit. Whether you want to go birding, snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking in the jungle, kayaking the mangroves, or camping under the stars on the Caribbean coast, Mahahual offers it all.
Mahahual is also conveniently located just 40 minutes from the beautiful town of Bacalar, about an hour from the Chacchoben ruins and just over an hour from Xcalak for even more amazing adventures.
Mahahual Ecotours offers many different day-tour options for those with just a few hours or multi-day/overnight customizable tour options for those that want to experience a real “back to nature” adventure.
