About Us

About LDS Tours Cancun by Mormon Encounters mission and tours:

We offer immersive and comprehensive Maya culture and historical tours that are fun and exciting for both LDS members and non-LDS members. We also offer Cancun adventure and exploration tours such as snorkeling, swimming with turtles, island excursions, ziplining and more!

Since 2006, our work has touched the testimonies and hearts of hundreds of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and even the hearts of many persons who are not church members.

The value of the knowledge we have to share inspires us to perform our work with passion every day and to see this as one more tool in the effort to achieve perfection.

It is for this reason that we invite you to meet our team of professionally trained guides to see why LDS Tours Cancun By Mormon Encounter is your best option for visiting, exploring, and learning of the true archaeology of the Book of Mormon in Mesoamerica.

About the Owners of Mormon Encounters

Mormon Encounters is operated and managed by Carlos Alemán and Nefi Petlacalco, two former missionaries who are professional tour guides specialized in Maya culture, trained in history, archaeology, anthropology, and the culture of Mexico. They are certified by the Mexican tourism authorities. They have led many LDS people through the passages of the Book of Mormon and the Maya cities. You can find some of the experiences in their records of visits; however, each tour is for them a new experience and chance to give their best and share their faith, testimony, and the history of their first fathers. Mormon Encounter is a family business created out of love for their faith and testimony. The goal is to increase the faith of your family and friends who visit these lands. At Mormon Encounter, we are focused on exceeding the expectations of visitors. This is our way to thank you for you confidence in the company.

Thank you,

Nefi Petlacalco and Carlos Alemán
