2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better March 2014

Everything in Mexico revolves around the next meal.This long boat trip takes you from the docks via the sea front into a n inlet and up stream.You are given talk on the Tuna,Shrimp Industry,the people fishing at the inlets at various places,you land where you will eat then get driven having noticed subsistence levels in villages ,a coconut farm and a few mango trees,,you get driven across to a beach where you may walk or swim,,,rather rough waves ,no one did.
You eat walk a little garden, with a few plants,you see an iguana...then back where a Pelican lands close on the boat and has been regularly fed in the past and is the attention as other bird swoop to be fed.....then back to bus and hotel.
Was this worth a day and $50 ,you decide!
