Kayak Tour Nichupté Lagoon - The kayak tour was very fun. The Host took pics and videos of us. It's kinda hard to get those types of pics from a kayak yourself. Camila is very knowledgeable and experienced with the ecosystem of the lagoon. She is also very passionate about the flora and fauna that inhabits it. It was relaxing and we enjoyed it so much!

Good way to enjoy the Nichupté lagoon. - It was our first experience of kayaking, but we enjoyed it a lot. This tour was suitable for beginners, but we could enjoy the nature and beauty of Nichupté lagoon. We went on the tour with our daughter and she also enjoyed the experience. We asked them to prepare a double seater, and it was the perfect solution for her as she was a bit nervous about riding a kayak on her own. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience the tranquility of the lagoon and a peaceful moment of sunset. The guide was kind,helpful and patient, and he helped us enjoy the nature and beauty of the lagoon. Thank you!

Awsome!!! - We heard about Highlife Mexico through an advertisement on Facebook and booked immediately! Before the tour, they provided us with all the information that we needed to be prepared for our kayaking adventure. When we started the tour, our tour guide, Cami, gave us detailed instructions about technique and valuable information about the mangrove and species that live in the lagoon. My wife and I brought along our 1 year old baby, 13 year old boy and 16 year old daughter. It was easiest enough for an inexperienced kayaker but also fun for an avid kayaker! It was truly a beautiful experience navigating through the mangroves! Having an amazing tour guide that not only teaches you all about the environment, provides fun facts and also makes jokes with you along the way made the experience even better!! Do not hesitate booking this tour or any tour with Highlife Mexico! You will have the time of your life!

Great experience - Jr. and Dylan were fantastic guides! They were both very patient and were sure to point out things that were spotted and other information about the waters and the areas we were in. We have never kayaked to watch the sunset so this first time experience was awesome. The company was sure to communicate as soon as the booking was made and remained in constant communication up to the date of the event. That is something I also liked instead of waiting until the last moment like some others. We highly recommend this tour and if we ever make it back, will do this again.

An absolutely awesome experience you have to try for yourself!!! - Camila the guide was very friendly and down to earth, helped us onto the kayaks and SUP boards quickly so we could start the trip. She had lots of knowledge on the lagoon and let us go at our own pace. The sunset although apparently a ‘bad’ one on the day due to the clouds was still beautiful and great to see! It was serene and peaceful in the middle of the lagoon would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Cancun!!

Perfect way to enjoy the lagoon - The tour was awesome! I couldn't do the sunset tour due to my flight but they were very accommodating and fit me into a tour in the morning. There was the option of paddling if you don’t want to do kayaking. Our guide Jackie was very attentive and informative. She made sure that we took rest in between and there was even an opportunity to spend some time to chill on the beach and swim. She also took some great photos for the group! I can’t recommend the tour and Highlife enough!

Dive Logistics - High Life did a great job with the Logistics of my dive trip in Cancun. Camila set everything up and checked in before the dive to ensure I would not miss the boat. Thank you.
