Whether you are an avid birding enthusiast or just enjoy the sight of beautiful birds, consider staying at least two nights or book one of our many multi-night vacation packages.
In our hotel's gardens, private Maya Jungle Reserve, and Bird Refuge, you will find these resident birds, many endemic to Yucatan Peninsula and a true gift from Mother Nature. Here are some photographed by delighted guests, like Keenan Sanders, a young guest at Hacienda Chichen Resort.

One of the greatest joys, for professional or amateur birding in Yucatan is to photograph the grace and beautiful elegance of a Toh bird resting on a perch; an unusual sighting even in the Yucatan, but truly common at Hacienda Chichen's lush jungle gardens, nature paths and Bird Refuge. Relax in your hammock overlooking our gardens and delight as birds fly by such as the Melodious Black or Altamira Oriole, Scarlet Tanager, Yucatan Jay, Yellow-faced Grassquit, Keel-billed Toucan or a great Laughing Falcon when building a nest within yard of your guest-room cottage.
