Overview
Take a boat tour to Passion Island, Isla Pajaros and Yalahau Spring from Isla Holbox. On this guided excursion, view over 35 species of nesting birds on Isla Pajaros (Bird Island), including frigates and pelicans. Hear about the birds' migration patterns and breeding breeding behaviors from your bird-loving local guide. Continue to Passion Island to see the resident flamingos, then swim in the cenote (freshwater sinkhole) at Yalahau. Round-trip transportation from Isla Holbox hotels is included.
What to Expect
The exact order of the itinerary depends on the day and the weather conditions. Your sightseeing tour includes visits to:

Isla Pajaros (Bird Island): a small island off the coast of Isla Holbox which is famous for its variety of bird species. Depending on the time of year you visit, different species of birds will be there for you to watch. A birdwatcher's paradise and a true spectacle of nature!

Passion Island: this island, also known to be the home of many birds allows you to watch different species as they feed and breed. Throughout most of the year, you'll be able to see pink flamingos in the shallow, colorful waters.

Yalahau: this cenote (fresh water sinkhole), according to the legend, was used by old pirates and fishermen as a fresh water supply. Now you can swim in the crystal clear water that rejuvenates and refreshes all visitors.

Punta Mosquito: depending on the time of year, there is sometimes a larger bird concentration in Punta Mosquito, especially flamingos. If this is the case, you'll be taken to Punta Mosquito instead of Isla Pajaros.

Great Tour!

Fun small tour with an enthusiastic guide who had lost of information about the local birds. We had the perfect amount of time at each location, and never felt rushed. Guide had water and binoculars for the guests.
