Birdwatching Punta Laguna

Wildlife photography

Famous for its beautiful lake, mature jungle and huge population of spider monkeys, the area of Punta Laguna is also a potential habitat for over 360 species of birds.

Deep into the jungle we have a great chance to see incredible birds, to experience the living Mayan culture and support local Eco-tourism initiatives.  

For lunch, we will visit a Mayan family that is glad to welcome us to share their way of life.  We will try a tasty local meal with hand made tortillas while we learn and contribute towards the efforts they are taking to preserve their environment and culture.

There is also the possibility to add a visit to the archaeological site of Coba to this experience.  The early settlers of Coba took advantage of a series of small lagoons to found their city; which was possibly the largest pre-Hispanic settlement of the Classic period in northern Yucatán.  Coba flourished between 300-1000 AD, there are five main architectural groups distributed around the lakes connected by an impressive road network of sacbeoob (ancient causeways).  The temple known as Nohoch Mul is about 42m tall (138 ft) and from the top you can see the jungle like a green carpet covering the ancient city.

"Experience the living culture of the area through the birds"...
