Top Birdwatching Cancun TripAdvisor Reviews

tripadvisor review birdwatching cancun mexico

Great bird watching morning

We had a lovely morning watching birds with our Guide Carlos. He brought two extra binoculars for us and really good sandwiches and soda. Allthough we are total greenhorns in birdwatching he took his time and showed us all the birds patiently. He knew them all by name and immediately. We saw about 50 different lovely birds.

Great Birding Experience!

Everything planned was well executed and incredibly enjoyable. Anyone who enjoys bird watching, from the beginner to the expert would find this to be a highlight to their vacation. Jose was our guide. He picked us up at the hotel and took us to several locations to scout out possible endemic and/or rare species.
