6 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

About 20 minutes south of Tulum, we have the opportunity to enjoy an incredible bird diversity, learn about the current Maya culture and the ancient Maya civilization as we walk and look for birds in the village and archaeological site of Muyil.

We explore different habitats in the village with different types of vegetation: mature semi-deciduous jungle in the archaeological site of Muyil and some fresh water wetlands as we walk through flooded jungle using a boardwalk until we reach a fresh water lagoon.

On this tour it is possible to identify from 40 to 80 species of birds (depending on the time of the year).

There is also the possibility to add a boat trip across two lagoons and a lazy river floating experience to this tour.

Please be aware that if you are the only client who booked the tour, we will have to either cancel your reservation or change your reservation to a private tour (230usd)
