The early bird watching tour in Uxmal was excellent. We were picked up at our hotel in Merida on time (6:30 AM) and driven to Uxmal in a comfortable vehicle with a charming and interesting driver. The birding tour guide Jorge was very knowledgeable and experienced in identifying birds visually and by sound, and lead us to many interesting birds. The breakfast supplied mid tour was excellent, and the final part of the tour through the Uxmal archeological site was also interesting and yielded additional birds. I would highly recommend a birding tour with Jorge.
