Visiting Rio Lagartos from
Playa Del Carmen, Cancun, Tulum and the Riviera Maya
The best option is to use a rental
car and to spend at least one night.
This will give you the most choices of
tours and places to visit on the way to and from
It is possible to visit just for the day but it makes for a long day with night driving on your return. An overnight stay gives you all the options for tours at the best times of day. Available tours include Bird watching by Land or by boat, Photography Tours, Crocodile Night Tours, fly fishing and light tackle. Surf our website for all
the Options and prices
