Early in 2011 we returned to the Yucatan peninsular for another tour of the impressive Mayan sites and a taste of Central American birding.
For the first time we included Calakmul in the itinerary on which we also visited Uxmal, Tulum, Coba, Palenque and Chichen Itza.
Ocellated Turkeys are ridiculously tame and therefore easy to observe!
At Calakmul the forest shrouds the steps to high pyramids and the well preserved stelae
A constrictor in the hotel grounds at Uxmal
The pink lagoon at Celestun
15,000 flamingos an amazing audio visual experience
the mangroves at Celestun are home to a host of waterbirds and here we found a nest full of tiger herons
