I just posted a report from my recent Nov trip above and I'll kick it up to a new thread. People on here have been helpful on my trips.
I have a few days to bird in the Playa Hermosa area in Guanacaste. I have some areas to check such as some farm fields and the Catfish farm areas noted in eBird. I have some general areas to bird, but due to time any specifics on access and how to bird those areas would be helpful.

It's got a wacking primary projection and yellowish feet but I...
Does anyone have any suggestions where to look for this species in areas around Felipe Carillo Puerto, Tulum, Coba or Muyil.

I'm targeting nightbirds this time, Poorwill, Nightjar and Mottled Owl but it will require some early mornings since staying overnight at those spots isn't logistical given my...
I can probably expand my radius ���� it was meant to limit what info I got but I may do a bit more exploring. The town of Francisco oh Ma (?) en route to Coba was said to be good by another birder. I didn't have time but it looks promising.
I still need Mottled Owl and the nightjars so...
I will be returning to Tulum in late November again this year. My report from 2017 is on a previous thread.

Would anyone have any suggestions for areas about an hour from Tulum that may be worth...
