birding tour mexico birdwatching riviera maya

Birdwatching Riviera Maya Tour is ideal for travelers that are visiting the south of The Riviera Maya (Playa del Carmen, Akumal, or Tulum area).

The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Natural Reserve is a great spot for birdwatching in the jungle between the Mayan coast and Muyil archaeological site.

Here a great variety of birds can be spotted in the jungle, plus the sea birds as the birding spots are near the coast.

We work with members of a community near Sian Ka´an, local birding experts that have been walking this area since they were a child.
