Like visiting a new area with a friend who knows where to find birds

Visit Cozumel's best birding locations to look for the island's endemics or any of the other 260+ species to be found here.

You'll be led by your driver, an island resident and experienced amateur bird-watching guide, who knows all the places to go and will help you spot and identify your sightings.

You'll be picked up from your hotel, cruise or ferry and will travel in a comfortable mini-van to each stop, which - depending on the time of year and your guide's advice - can include the jungle near the San Gervasio archaelogical zone, the "ghost town" just south of downtown, the golf course to the north, and the island's many quiet lagoons and nature reserves.

The tour takes you right round Cozumel and lasts a full 5 hours, so expect to see a lot of birds and beautiful untouched parts of the island. Binoculars can be provided if you do not have your own, just ask at the time of booking.

Many of the aquatic birds are migratory which is why the best time of the year to spot them is from November to April. However the amazing nature here is a great pleasure year round with several bird species resident to the lagoons.

You'll tick off plenty of the species on your target list, which could include the Roseate Spoonbill, Great Blue Heron, Jacana, Belted Kingfisher, Yellow Warbler, Osprey, Cozumel Emerald and many others.


Migratory species are here between November and April.
