Join Erin Law on an exciting exploration of the biologically-rich Yucatán Peninsula. Over 500 bird species are found in this part of Mexico, in addition to multitudes of mammals, amphibians, reptiles and butterflies. This is the heart of the Maya Civilization, and our excursions will be centered around a number of awe-inspiring archaeological sites. In the Sian-Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, the Keel-billed Toucan, Rose-throated Tanager, and Ornate Hawk-eagle will be a few of our targets. Further inland, we’ll explore the ancient Maya city of Chichen Itza, one of the "New Seven Wonders of the World," searching for Yucatan Jay, Cinnamon Hummingbird, and the Turquoise-browed Motmot. We’ll also visit the uniquely stunning site of Tulum, where Maya pyramids perch overlooking the Caribbean, and the Coba archaeological site, also a reserve for monkeys. We’ll also have an opportunity to swim or snorkel in the pristine waters of a ‘cenote’: a natural pool in a limestone cave. Lastly, we’ll take a ferry over to the small island of Cozumel, where we’ll search for endemic birds such as the Cozumel Emerald Hummingbird, Black Catbird, and Cozumel Vireo. We’ll have time to enjoy the beach and relax on this beautiful island as we reflect our amazing journey.
