Let us take you on a world class birding and archaeological adventure in the southern state of Chiapas, Mexico. A hidden gem - one of the last wilderness areas of Mexico with unbelievable archaeological Maya sites where you can explore for great birds as well as this lost culture of a highly advanced civilization.

We have a fully trained staff who not only can identify the birds you will see, in English, but are residents of Chiapas, well-versed in travel in their country. Accomodations are nice, clean, and have hot and cold running water with a private bath. We will be with you from the time you land in Tuxtla Gutierrez (capital of Chiapas) until we bid you farewell from the same airport at the conclusion of your adventure.

Chiapas is the southernmost state in Mexico, bordering the states of Tabasco to the north, Veracruz to the northwest and Oaxaca to the west. To the east, Chiapas borders Guatemala, and to the south the Pacific Ocean. The state covers an area of about 28,297 square miles (about the same size as West Virginia), and has about 4.3 million inhabitants. There are about 899 species of birds in the United States, 1092 species in Mexico, and 733 species in Chiapas. The state is filled with wildly beautiful landscapes, rich indigenous culture, and impressive Maya archaeological sites.
