The Yucatan is home to nearly a dozen regional endemics (including four that are found only on Cozumel Island) and a large number of other interesting tropical species and water birds generally found much further south. Some of the must-see birds on the tour are Rufous-necked Woodrail, American Pygmy Kingfisher, American Flamingo, Yucatan Flycatcher, Yucatan Vireo, Yucatan Woodpecker, White-bellied Wren, Orange Oriole, Ruddy Crake, Rose-throated Tanager, Yucatan Jay, Yucatan Wren, Yucatan Bobwhite, Mexican Sheartail, Gray-throated Chat, and Black Catbird. On an average trip, we can see somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 species.

The aquamarine waters and dreamy soft white sand beaches that surround the Yucatan Peninsula have made it a famous vacation destination. This sublime beauty makes for a birding destination that is hard to resist! For some, this is about as far afield as they venture. Unfortunately for them, they’ll be missing out on the fascinating history, rich culture and great natural diversity that can be found by roving a bit farther afield. Our goal on this itinerary is to travel to a broad selection of the best birding habitats, including mangrove estuaries, beautiful beaches, dry tropical forest and dense lowland jungle. We also visit some of the magnificent archeological ruins, enjoy unique regional cuisine and explore the world of the Mayan culture, which is still alive and well throughout the Yucatan Peninsula.
