Tour the Mayan jungle in Reserva Nativa and contemplate the flight of numerous species of birds that inhabit this unique natural environment. You can see toucans, chachalacas, tropical doves, and many more!
Birdwatching in Reserva Nativa
We will collect you from your hotel early in the morning or meet you at the entrance to Reserva Nativa (according to the chosen option), before starting our exploration of the Mayan jungle. This nature reserve located on the Yucatan peninsula is home to numerous species of birds that are rarely seen elsewhere in the world.
Before heading into the jungle, we perform a welcome ritual to ask for permission and protection from the ‘Aluxes’ – Mayan gods which resemble Goblins. We then equip ourselves with the essential birdwatching kit (binoculars and walking stick) and we start our two-hour walk through Reserva Nativa.
During the tour, you will have the opportunity to spot toucans, hummingbirds, and tropical doves in their natural habitat. You will also see quails, ocellated turkeys, and redbirds with their beautiful plumage. Watching them mid-flight is an amazing experience!
To get a better understanding of all these birds, we will climb up to the observation deck of Reserva Nativa to enjoy some unique views of the jungle. We then go to the park’s nature museum, where you will learn all about the features of each bird.
We finish with a morning swim in the Reserva Nativa pool and enjoy a delicious breakfast in the main palapa building. This is the icing on the cake for a wonderful trip!
