In addition to bird watching, guides introduce visitors to common medicinal and edible plants, along with their Mayan names. Trained by Rare, our guides are good sources of information about the ecosystem and conservation issues of Sian Ka'an.

We offer morning or evening walks around the Muyil Archeological Site. Muyil is the best birding option in Sian Ka'an because it provides easier access to birdwatchers. Get to know the ancient and modern Mayan representatives, and add some birds to your life list.
