We've had a few opportunities to belt out "welcome to the jungle" as we float down the river in Mexico, but it wasn't until San Blas that we decided to put our adventurous pants on (plus LOTS of bug repellant) and go out in a boat.

In retrospect, we weren't totally prepared for it, so that's why we included 5 helpful tips for getting the most out of a jungle boat tour in Mexico at the end of the video. The day started off with us getting scammed by a bus and then a cab, but we still made the most of it anyway. And thank goodness—we got to swim and play in some crystal clear water at the end!

Check out the crocodiles, fishes, and fun in the full video below.

I had to come back here to say a massive thanks to you guys. You blew my mind away. I have been thinking about it all day. I couldn't contain the excitement. You have a golden heart. No words could adequately do justice to how excited i am, with your kind and timely gestures. Wow. Thank you, thank you, thank you massively. Means a lot to me, more than you can imagine. Wow!. God bless your hearts.

@olawalium we couldn't think of another more deserving individual on Steemit! You consistently read every one of our posts and watch the videos, write thoughtful comments, and always bring a smile to our faces! We know you do the same for others with enthusiasm every day. Additionally, we believe your posts are well-written and undervalued. Hopefully, we can do more to help ramp up your account so your efforts are rewarded, as they should be. :)

Steemians, you gotta follow @olawalium. He's the BEST.

Oh my! This got to me. Wow! You are both a blessing.

You are a rare gift
You came to give me a lift
With so much joy and no rift
I know you catch my drift

Hahaha. This is huge. Thank you. Means a whole lot to me. Don't make me rush down to Mexico, give you both a massive hug, take Tequila shots with you, and come back. Haha.

Have been following this kind soul from the beginning!!! It's true about reading it all and writing his heart out. I am happy to call @olawalium my friend.

He has also pushed me to cteate on steemit when I was down and lazy (talling about #Dreamscometrue, Olawalium) and his comment always put a smile on my face!

Thank you for helping him out, what ever you did, it sounds like it was super well appreciated!

And guys, excellent video. It reminded me of abtime I crossed the border from Mexico to Guatemala by boat, well except for the bit where we thought we were going to be in real trouble. Beautiful trip you are having.

Following you, I want to see more stuff!

Thanks for sharing

Thank you so much @senorcoconut. It's really an honour to have you as a friend. Your kind words are much appreciated and it's good to have #dreamscometrue be a reality and all credit goes to you, my friend.
Yes, @tangerinetravels are so amazing, kindhearted and adorable. I am glad you are following them now. You will enjoy every of their posts. I do every time.

Thank you so much @Olawalium I am happy you told me about their blog. I like it a lot... it reminds me of my own trips so far!

Yes, read you moved across Mexico too, on a boat. Hahaha. That's funny. Wow.

Oh god... the first time we had a nasty misunderstanding, thought we were going to be left in the middle of some river, to die! And the second attempt on another river, our little boat got surrounded by a swarm of huge angry bees, but the engine got fixed right in time when only one person got stung....we sped away! It will be posted one day!

Hahahahaha. I can't wait to read about it. Please, do tag me when you do. Bees are not really nice with the stings. Glad you got saved. It's scary being in the middle of the water and the boat give way. Haha. What caused the misunderstanding? I trust you will give every inch details as to what happened, when you make that post.

It makes us so happy to hear the joy this gift brought you! You deserve it, remember that!

It humbles me. Thanks again. I feel like dancing hahahahaha

Oh my goodness! You got scammed? How so?

It wasn't anything too bad, but we basically just got overcharged. We ended up having to pay more than double what we were expecting.

Ouch! I guess that is everywhere. Once they know you are new, they try to charge higher. I have experienced it several times in new places, even when i try to use a bold face. My cousin experienced it too. They charged him higher, he thought the place must be far, so he didn't argue. The bike man actually took him round the place he was meant to stop four times, to make it look far. He noticed he passed the same house four times. Sheer wickedness. So sorry about that.

Wow! See that pelican! Adorable. I totally enjoy that crystal clear water. I could stay there for hours. I love stuffs like that. Maddie took a backstroke dive. Hahaha. It's good to see that, despite everything, you still had fun. That's amazing.

Haha, I've been there before 😂 Someone gave me a great tip: leave the tags empty until you are sure you are done with the post, that way you can't accidentally press post.

Thanks for tip! It was actually a post from the wrong account. There seems to be a bug on Steemit with the profile pictures right now we think? There's another account with no profile image so that's what caused the whole silly sitch.

All better now! :)

Yeah, I noticed that do, I wonder what the coder monkeys are doing with Steemit :D

Nice, Tour. Thanks for sharing with us.

Looking beautiful

I love a good tour, as i love sharing the experience,nice one enjoy.

Whoa! Looks like quite the adventure 😮

It was great! We'd definitely recommend it.

What about the crocs in the place where you guys were jumping? Weren't you scared, they could swim up?

Nice trip, I wish I was in Mexico too now!

Thankfully, they had this netting/fence type thing that separated the rest of the river from where we were swimming. Otherwise, there's no way we'd even be sticking a pinky toe in there! Lol

Lol, not even a pinky toe!! I bet. The water is so crystal clear, I wasn't sure it was the same river at first. Amazing, they fenced the crocs out of that area...cool.
