Mexico: The Yucatán and Cozumel January 16-24, 2021
Most people think of Mexico for it's white sand beaches, warm Caribbean water, and bottomless pina coladas. But this tour will focus on the birds of the Yucatán Penninsula, where 3 major eco-regions collide with the Caribbean, central Mexico, and northern Central American species creating one of the most biodiverse regions in all of Mexico. Join me and our local expert Luis Kú Quiñones as we explore the varied habitats, and try to track down around 250 species during our week in the Yucatán!
