Who we really are?
Encounters is a small tour company founded by Barna Takats with the vision of providing personalized and unique close encounters with the wildlife of Southern Mexico.
Later due to an increased demand Encounters started to offer diving excursions to different parts of Mexico including the Pacific islands of Socorro. But the expansion didn't stop there as right now Encounters is organising diving and non diving trips not only in Mexico but all around the world.
Let it be diving in Galapagos or the Maldives, professional diving courses in Cyprus or Gorilla and Chimpanzee tracking in the jungles of Rwanda and Uganda Encounters offers and does it all! :)
Who is Barna?
Barna is the founder and main guide of Encounters. He is from Hungary and he lived in many places on three continents before arriving to Mexico. He guided wildlife tours on four continents and set up tours to all of them :)
Wildlife is not only his work and passion but it is his hobby as well. On his honeymoon he went to Alaska to see polar bears and he visited over 70 countries looking for different species even before he would start working as a guide.
Barna is a diving instructor, cave diver and technical diver too which means he is ready to chase down any kind of animal, no matter where it would be hiding. :)
He workes regularly with professional photographers and journalist, worked before with BBC film crew, National Geographic among other important media outlets.

Encounters is not a traditional tour operator or a travel agency
Encounters is an idea, a dream, it is an approach towards Nature, Culture and our amazing Environment. Encounters is simply the name of our effort to share all of this with the people around us. Share it with our friends, family and if it happens that way, with you as well.
