Hummingbirds in Yucatan (1 Viewer)

Hi guys,
I'm presently on vacation in Yucatan and Quintana Roo. One week remaining. I have seen very few hummingbirds so far. Any tips on good spots for these? I'd like to do some photography. I will stay on mainland, so such sites are preferred.

I do not really remember any spots with abundant or dependable hummingbirds from that area. At Rio Bec Dreams I saw a female Green-throated Mango on a couple of different days but not constantly.

Yes, quite few flowering plants here right now. Perhaps manmade habitats are the best at the moment?
Some garden. Any ideas, anyone? I visited the botanical garden in Puerto Morelos a few days ago, but it was mainly trees and wild nature rather than flowers.

I am on holiday near Akumal now. Haven’t seen any hummingbirds in the hotel grounds. Had Cinnamon Hummingbird here in March. Have recently seen Ruby throated Hummingbird near San Juan del Rio on the way to Rio Lagartos along with Cinnamon Hummingbird. Also saw White bellied Emerald near Muyil Village. Otherwise quiet.

I missed Cinammon Hummer. Had Buff-bellied at Coba, several White-bellied Emerald's at Muyil, a couple of Wedge-tailed Sabrewings at Vigo Chico road, along with a single Canivet's Emerald. So this week, I mAnaged to scrape a few hummingbirds together but they were not numerous or photogenic.
