One of the biggest attractions is the beach but it is not the only thing to do. We bring for you The Xaman Ha Aviary! An excellent option to spend the weekend and at the same time learn about nature and do something different.

Also, observing birds in danger of extinction, such as the Yucatecan parrot, the Yucatan magpie, and the turkey of the mountain, which have found their home in this beautiful place. Here they protect more than 45 species of birds that fly and are cared for in their natural environment.
