About
About 20 minutes south of Tulum, we have the opportunity to enjoy an incredible bird diversity, learn about the current Maya culture and the ancient Maya civilization as we walk and look for birds in the village and archaeological site of Muyil. We explore different habitats in the village with different types of vegetation: mature semi-deciduous jungle in the archaeological site of Muyil and some fresh water wetlands as we walk through flooded jungle using a boardwalk until we reach a fresh water lagoon. On this tour it is possible to identify from 40 to 80 species of birds (depending on the time of the year). Depending on the availability of boats, there is also the possibility to add a boat trip across two lagoons and a lazy river floating experience to this tour. We float in a truly unique setting, listening to the sounds of nature, among mangroves, orchids & bromeliads. A calming experience like nothing you have experienced before.

When in Tulum, go birding with Amar Aves!
Jun 2021
When in Tulum, everyone visits the beaches, the ruins, and of course, the cenotes. Incredible birds are at all these places, but not everyone seems to notice them. After going birding one morning with Miguel of Amar Aves/Mexico Can Tours, my partner and I began to notice and recognize the amazing birds of the region everywhere we went--including Turquoise-browed Mot-mots around Cenotes, Yucatan Jays in the forested edges of Tulum Ruins, the Great Kiskadee couple in our neighborhood in downtown Tulum--which s greatly enhanced, deepened, and beautified our travel experience. This was in large part thanks the birdwatching tour in Muyil & Sian Ka'an we booked for our first full day in Tulum and Yucatán Peninsula. I'd call myself an avid birder (a pandemic distraction turned everyday practice) and my partner a bird enthusiast. We might have learned a few birds on our own across two weeks, studying our guidebooks and scratching our heads. But Miguel helped us see and hear more quickly, more clearly, and more enjoyably a great variety of birds, including endemic species, within a relatively short span of time in the field, and he led us to wonderful and interesting places (like Muyil pueblo) we would not have otherwise known about or been comfortable going. Birdwatching with Amar Aves turned out to be a most memorable introduction to the place and one of our most cherished experiences of traveling to Tulum.

Best birding day I’ve had!
May 2021 • Solo
This was easily the best part of my trip to Tulum! Saw 50+ birds, most of which were new species I’d never seen before. Miguel was a phenomenal guide with an encyclopedia of knowledge about the birds in the area. There were countless times he’d hear a bird call off in the distance, tell me what bird and what direction it was, we’d walk a little bit and there it would be sitting right in front of us. Very impressive. The Muyil Archaeological site is very cool in itself and not overrun with tourists, offering a much more peaceful way to explore the ruins and surrounding jungle. 10/10 would recommend this trip.

Great time birding
May 2021
It was a first time ever I did birdwatching and thanks to Miguel & Eddy it was a great experience. I was impressed with their knowledge of birds and fauna and genuine interest and passion. Their ability to notice birds is just unbeatable. If you want to try birding - that's a great choice. Go for it!

Amazing! You must do this tour!
We had an AMAZING time with Miguel! This tour exceeded our expectations from start to finish! Being able to see several ecosystems which were each so different; learning from Miguel about not only birds but also the Mayans, Muyil, and all nature; and the variety of activity (we added on the boat tour and float and it was well worth it!). We have never been on a tour as amazing as this. We are new to birding and have been growing our interest, but now we are hooked! Miguel was so kind, considerate, knowledgeable, safety-conscious, and funny. My husband and I felt blessed getting to meet him. He makes a great cup of coffee too!
I really can’t say enough how much we enjoyed this tour and time in gorgeous nature and with Miguel. We hope to come back soon to take another tour to learn more from Miguel and enjoy more beautiful nature!

Miguel is the Man for Birding!
May 2021
Top-notch day of birding with a true expert. Miguel Amar Uribe (Amar Aves) has incredible fine-tuned skills of sight and hearing coupled with patience and extensive knowledge of the local birds and fauna. He's a skillful guide helping me to find the birds along the way he spotted (and I spotted one or two for him, a real point of pride!) I do most of my birding without guides but in places like the Yucatan a guide is necessary unless you're an expert on tropical birds. I'm not and Miguel is. Friendly and enjoyable companion for a memorable day of 52 species and 25 lifers.

Birding near Tulum
May 2020
After a very early pick up (which included a snake on the road) we had an excellent morning birding with Miguel. His knowledge is extensive, and his sense of humour and generosity, as well as his enquiring mind made it a memorable morning. The meal he provided was also excellent. I should love to return to Mexico and go birding again with Miguel.

Concierge Calakmul & Campeche Birding
Mar 2021 • Solo
2nd fantastic private guided birding tour with Miguel Amar Uribe (Amar Aves), this time with the services of local guide Claudio Lopez for specialized eyes and ears. Due to the exceptional experience the first time, I requested an extended birding tour to Campeche and the Calakmul Temple archaeological site. Miguel delivered. My guides were “on” at all times; they had pre-scouted secret hotspots, unvisited by other birders.Their eyes and ears were on duty at all times; they were personally enjoying the discovery of each bird and I just tried to keep up! As I learned the birds and the ancient local history, I felt this was a very special walking tutorial! Accommodations for three nights were immaculately clean and new EcoLodges; authentic Mexican meals were cooked in front of us by a personal chef. Montezuma Oropendola put on a show; Collared Forest Falcon, Ornate Hawk-Eagle, Ocellated Turkey, Great Curassow, White-necked Puffbird, Chestnut-colored Woodpecker, Red-capped Manakin, Black-crowned Tityra were added to my Life List of 50+ for the trip. Let me not forget the elusive Stub-tailed Spadebill, which I spotted and my guides identified! The adventure was topped off, after the target birds were recorded, on the beautiful blue-green waters of Lago Bacalar on a sunset cruise. This cenote-fed lake, Miguel taught me, is home to the stromatolites, biologic limestone formations which are the oldest life on our Planet Earth.
Amar Aves will provide a great birding tour to casual birders or for the most discriminating globetrotting ornithologists. Miguel Amar Uribe is a naturalist-philosopher committed to the preservation of his natural Yucatán homeland. He will teach you a lot, so bring prepare your eyes, your brain, your tastebuds, and all your senses!

This is Your Guide!
Mar 2021
I would give this 10 stars if I could. Birding is always part of our travels but this was without a doubt the best guided tour we have experienced. Miguel is an amazing guide and a lovely person to spend the day with. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the birds of the area, and is able to pepper the walks with details about the ecology, history and community of the areas we visited for those who are not as birdy. A wonderful day I encourage folks of all levels to book!

Miguel and Julie were great tour guides! They are very knowledgeable of the bird species, history of the Mayan culture and ruins, and locations of rare and beautiful birds. They provided a delicious breakfast and lunch too! It was amazing seeing a Motmot and Trogon among the other endemic and seasonal birds-- truly amazing!
