Birding Site Guide

This is a fairly small town at a main junction of the road. It is easily accessible by bus and is about 3hrs south of Playa del Carmen. There are a few places to stay and eat and there is also internet. The birding spot is close to town. Head e from the main roundabout and bear left after 5 blocks or 600m following the instructions in the site guide. Birding is great in the early morning but it gets hot very quickly. Oscillated Turkey and Great Curassow are present in the area but are rare outside of the reserve. There is hunting pressure and I even saw a man cycling along with a rifle. 89 species including 14 lifers.
