Departure Time

6:30 AM
Early morning is the best time for bird watching, so you'll begin your private tour with pickup from your hotel (Cancun or Puerto Morelos) at 5am. After boarding a comfortable private tour vehicle with your party, you'll head out on the road bound for some of the best bird watching spots in the Yucatan Peninsula. 

Stop at a spot near Puerto Morelos, where you'll listen to your guide's commentary about the ecosystem while waiting for the birds to appear. Look for the yellow-lored parrot, the Yucatan jay, the rose-throated tanager, and the orange oriole. 

Make your way deep into the Mayan jungle on the northern edge of the Riviera Maya, learning about the area's fauna and flora as you travel. Your guide may point out additional birds (you may see up to 90 different varieties) such as the painted bunting, the tropical gnatcatcher, the cinnamon hummingbird, and Vaux's swift. 

Before heading back to your hotel for drop-off, you'll refuel with an included snack.

Highly Recommend to All Nature Lovers

Carlos was extremely knowledgeable and friendly! He had a level of excitement and passion for birdwatching that was infectious. Carlos clearly has a natural talent for spotting and calling the birds. He was also genuinely excited to share this experience with fellow bird lovers. We got to see 30-40 different bird species on this excursion. And it will not be the last time we go with Carlos! To note: Carlos has a pair of binoculars for himself and one extra pair to share. If you’re going with a group best to bring your own pair.

Fantastic authentic birdwatching adventure

Transportation from the hotel and back was seamless and on time. Our guide Luís was friendly and identified all the birds by both sight and sound in both Spanish and English. He was able to help us find clear views of birds through dense jungle. We saw more than 40 different species. This was truly a breathtaking experience.

Great birds, passionate and knowledgeable guide

Saw almost 50 species of birds, many for the first time for my spouse and I. Our guides passion for birds and nature was apparent from the first minute and his knowledge of bird calls, habitat, and sharp eye helped us see many species that would have been hard to find. Even our driver got in on the action! Definitely recommend booking with a group to save on per-person costs.
