Guests at Ecotoucan stay in private thatch-roofed cabins made out of native materials found on our land. Less than 1/2 hectare was cleared to build the cabins; over 60 hectares have been preserved and are used for jungle walks to observe local plants and animals. Each of the five cabins has its own private verandah with sitting area, bathroom and shower with hot and cold water, tiled floors, screened windows, and 100% solar powered electricity. The cabins and suites are bright, spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated in traditional Mexican colors.
Tour the extensive gardens of native species, walk on our jungle trail, or go on a guided mountain bike tour with Active Nature, an educational jungle adventure to a breeding station for an endangered endemic bird species – the Great Curassow.
Active Nature takes you on bird watching tours as well as guided jungle walks during which visitors get a chance to learn about and observe the flora and fauna of this region first hand. Whether you are a bird watcher or a nature lover, you'll spend relaxing days exploring our area. Below are a handful of some of the most exotic commonly spotted birds on our property.
White-bellied Emerald | Blue-crowned Motmot | Keel-billed Toucan | Collared Aracari | Blue Ground-Dove | Smoky-brown Woodpecker | Lineated Woodpecker |Northern Royal Flycatcher | Stub-tailed Spadebill | Yucatan Jay | Brown Jay | Rose-throated Tanager | Montezuma Oropendola | Ringed KingfisherOther commonly spotted wildlife in the area includes butterflies, coatis or tejones, armadillos, agoutis, peccaries and a wide variety of snakes and insects.
If all these activities aren't adventurous enough for you we can arrange More. A Zipline high in the canopy for example, where the effort of climbing up a free hanging latter is paid off by a breathtaking view over the canopy and Laguna Bacalar and of course by the thrill to “fly” over the trees. Or how about rappelling 80m down to a sacred Cenote in the remote Southern tip of Quintana Roo's Jungle? The Rappel Tour to Cenote Cocodrilo Dorado in La Union (120 km from Bacalar) is a trip you'll never forget. If you are interested in these adventurous activities please contact us for more information.
