First Birding Trip to the Yucatan (1 Viewer)

Me and two others are heading to the Yucatan for our first birding trip in Mexico in March. We already have the itinerary, hotels, and flights set. Just want some more information for the hotspots we are going to visit (anything of note, parking, useful tips), cool restaurants or other recommendations, and if we should skip some hotspots for other hidden gems. I especially need help in the areas around Rio Lagartos. Also, I was planning on getting a field guide (Birds of Belize), using Merlin, and studying beforehand because we will mostly be without a guide.

Day 0: Cancun -> Yaax Che Jardin -> Tulum
Day 1: Tulum: Tulum ruins and beach
Day 2: Tulum: Camino vigia chico and muyil
