flamingos in Rio Lagartos Riviera maya tours and Riviera Maya birds

Love this photo and love the flamingos in Rio Lagartos. You don't need to be a bird watcher to enjoy this super photo of the day. Nor do you have to be a bird watcher to venture out to see hundreds of flamingos in the Yucatan. Rio Lagartos is a true working fishing village in the Gulf Of Mexico just 3 hours from the coast of the Riviera Maya. As a one day adventure, by rental car or by a tour, seeing the flamingos in their natural habitat is worth this day trip! Local tour guides are more...

fun things to keep you entertained on your family vacation in the Riviera maya

My 5 year old nephew saw this bird on an adventure walk in the Riviera Maya. Of course I had no idea what type of bird it was or what family of birds it came from. My instinct was the Mayan turkey, referred to as the Ocelated Turkey. Without the blue head and fancy plumes of an adult Ocelated turkey I could not say for sure, for sure that this was the actual Mayan turkey. After doing some late night research, I recovered myself as the smartest aunt in the world and was able to verify that this...
