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.

Cozumel bird tour.
Wide range of bird species, including juveniles around nesting season.

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.

Cozumel northern lagoons
An excellent habitat for spectacular birds like Pink (Roseate) Spoonbills.

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 amazingly nature here is a great pleasure year round with several bird species resident to the lagoons.

Cozumel lagoon tour.
Look for rare sights such as the Osprey and Golden Warbler.

With some luck 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.
