We specializes in organizing customised trips in the Yucatan

The Chilam Group is committed to environmental conservation and sustainable tourism.Our tour operators host multi-destination trips that are supported by local, independently run businesses. Promoting them successfully in niche markets requires a diverse executive team that is vertically integrated, with a robust and far-reaching sales and marketing arm, successful relationships with partners around the world and a strong online/IT component. We develop and run excursion, hotel and food service operations in locations that are undeveloped or underdeveloped, often remote, to the highest standards with regard to facilities, infrastructure and service. We then add value to these operations with custom-designed sales, marketing, administrative support and infrastructure. We complement our own products with trip components run by handpicked partners so we can deliver a high-caliber, end-to-end experience to our customers.

  • Crocs Encounter at Banco Chinchorro
    XTC Dive Center is now operating expeditions to facilitate close encounters with American Crocodiles (Cocodrylus Acutus) on the remote Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve in southern Quintana Roo



    ...

  • Banco Chinchorro at 800 km2 is the largest coral reef atoll in the northern hemisphere.

    Being a Biosphere Reserve with no permanent settlements and very limited access, it is among the last few truly unspoilt, majestic natural wonders remaining.

    In and around Cayo Centro, the largest island of three that are on the atoll, lives one of the largest known populations of American Crocodiles.

    Due to their interaction with the small group of seasonal fishermen in the reseve, they have become accustomed to coming out to clear, shallow water where we can facilitate some truly close encounters with large, and often multiple, crocodiles.

    We are currently taking only small groups of no more than six experienced divers on a very limited basis. Ensuring we don’t alter their behavioral and feeding habits, we are also restricting the amount of trips we run every year. We are working with outfitters and groups who specialize in, and look for, big animal encounters.

  • Whale Sharks Encounter
    This is far and away the world’s best Whale Shark encounter.
    The Whale Sharks are here May through September, with peak season being June, July and August.
    ...

  • The waters off Isla Mujeres towards Isla Contoy are certainly special.

    Although the largest and most reliable attraction here is the world’s largest congregation of Whale Sharks, in the hundreds, it is not unusual to also see giant mantas, schooling mobulas and other pelagic life when out here.

    This skin-diving experience is suitable for everyone, even small children and older adults.

    The waters are almost always dead calm and the Whale Sharks calmly swimming by or static, sometimes bouncing up and down in a bottle position, feeding off of the Bonito eggs that bring them here.
