Mexico is awash with plentiful and fascinating wildlife. In fact, one-tenth of the world’s known species call Mexico home — wow! From hundreds of reptiles and insects, to wild cats, migratory and resident birds, marine life, and more, Mexico is a wildlife mecca. From the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Deserts to the rainforests of the Yucatan, from the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, to the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez, a Mexican nature tour is a can’t miss experience.
We are pleased to offer Mexican birding tours to locations like the Sea of Cortez, Oaxaca, and Alamos, as well as other Caribbean birding tours and Central American birding tours.
Guided Group Tours
Group travel is rewarding and fun! With more eyes you see more species. Travel Planners of Naturalist Journeys and Caligo Ventures have been creating memorable journeys for 40+ years. We offer you small-group birding and nature tours, limited to just 8-10 persons led by expert guides. Learn and explore with like-minded people, enjoy local food and culture, and immerse yourself in birding and nature.
