SUNSET WATCHING BIRDS TOUR
Birdwatching Sian Ka'an Sunset
BOAT TRIP - CARIBBEAN VARIETY OF BIRDS - SIAN KA´AN BIOSPHERE RESERVE
Sian Ka´an, which in Yucatec Mayan language means “place where the sky begins,” is one of the largest natural protected areas in Mexico (1.6 million acres). Its incredible biodiversity is protected by the UNESCO under the program MAB (Man and the Biosphere).
The Sian Ka´an biosphere reserve is located on a partially emerged coastal limestone plain, and as a consequence comprises some of the most diverse aquatic habitats of the area. This characteristic makes of Sian Ka´an a place of great importance for the nourishment, shelter and reproduction of resident, migratory and transient aquatic birds.
In this afternoon tour, we take a boat to visit a wide variety of ecosystems in search of its feathered residents and migratory population. We make a brief stop at the Boca Paila bridge, where the brackish waters of a lagoon meet the Caribbean Sea. Here it is possible to observe birds such as Osprey, Gulls, Terns, Sanderlings, Plovers and more. We continue searching for birds through creeks in the mangroves as we learn about the history, hydrology and many other interesting aspects of this reserve. To end a fabulous day of exploration, we stop the boat in front of a mangrove island to enjoy the sunset as hundreds of birds such as Roseate Spoonbills, White Ibis, Reddish Egrets, Tricolored, Boat-billed, Great Blue Herons and many more arrive from their feeding grounds to spend the night.
Enjoy a delicious dinner and wine by the sea to end a wonderful evening.
NOTE - THE COSTAL ROAD IS MOST OF THE TIME IN VERY BAD SHAPE, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A HIGH VEHICULE SUCH AS A JEEP, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USING YOUR CAR.
