Quinta Roo (Cancun) Guide Recommendations (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

My family just dropped on my lap that they wanted to do a trip to Cancun for the 4th of July weekend and all I heard was Mexican/Yucatan endemics. But since I'll only have 2, maybe 3, days of actual birding, I want to make the most out of it, so I need a guide for the region.

Anyone got a good local guide that they can recommend? My main goal is to get as many specialties as possible, even trying to get the Cozumel endemics but not the main priority, so I want a good guide that will be able to pick me up from the hotel and show me the birds before dropping me back. Any and all recommendations are welcome.

try birding with steven, he has online contact details and there's quite a few trip advisor reviews of this trips too.
he is based in the PDC quintana roo area.
though as far as wildlife is concerned the place is heaving, i got hummingbirds while walking along the side of the main highway from PDC to tulum, stupidly missed my stop on the collectivo and had t walk back one day, and bat falcon while up a viewing tower in the hotel grounds one evening, if you can wangle a family trip to one of the archaeological sites, (coba for example) you can do loads of birding while you walk round the mayan ruins too
