Archaeobirding

Archaeobirding is a new concept created by Martsam Travel which is a mixture of two of our most important specialties: the archaeological and birdwatching tours.

Archaeobirding Expeditions are an innovative tender to discover endemic and emblematic birds such as the resplendent Quetzal, Pink-Headed Warbler, Azure Rumped Tanager, Horned Guan, Yucatan Flycatcher, Yucatan Jay, Yucatan Bobwhite, Blue Tailed Hummingbird, Spotted Nightingale-thrush, Yellow-throated Brush-finch, Ocellated Turkey and Orange Breasted Falcon, among others.

Most of these birds are located inside of national parks with a high content of archaeology and nature such as Tikal National Park, Laguna del Tigre National Park, Yaxha, Iximche, Copan, Coba, Uxmal, Chichen Itza, Caracol, etc. where in addition to the birds you will find a great variety of mammals, reptiles, and insects which complete and enrich each of the expeditions.
