3 Reasons Why You Should Take Up Bird Watching Next Vacation

January, 2022.

A new year is here: the perfect excuse to take up a new hobby, and the ideal moment to choose a destination for your next vacation. So, why not book two birds with one click? Combine your next trip with a tour where you get to observe a wide variety of exotic and rare bird species—and all for a good cause! To ruffle your feathers a little more, check out these 3 reasons why bird watching should be included in your next holiday itinerary.

1. Birdwatching connects you with nature

Imagine exploring lush tropical vegetation and spotting local flora and fauna —without ever having to leave your resort. Picture rainforest flora filled with hundreds of unique bird species, such as the barn swallow or the striped woodpecker, demonstrating fascinating behaviors, colors and song. All-inclusive luxury resort Moon Palace Cancun boasts 315.72 acres of rainforest and mangrove which were declared a Protected Nature Reserve in 2013 by the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP). Additionally, this area was certified and recognized as an Area Voluntarily Destined for Conservation (ADVC). Now known as the "Moon Palace Private Reserve," it offers a habitat and refuge for extensive biodiversity—allowing birds and other wildlife species to live harmoniously, while preserving their natural biological cycles.

2. A birdwatching trip could be good for your health.

Apart from being an exciting experience for nature lovers and those who want to reconnect with their surroundings, birdwatching activities require a certain amount of physical and mental endurance. Although destinations with rich biodiversity, such as the Mexican Caribbean, offer a wider variety of species, bird spotting can be practiced virtually anywhere, and when combined with different outdoor adventures, is an excellent way to discover the natural wonders of any destination. Whether it is your first sighting or you are an expert birdwatcher, a number of skills come into play, including increased concentration and sharpened hearing and eyesight.

When you take up this hobby for a good cause, it can also be good for your heart. The Bird Watching Experience at Moon Palace Cancun, led by a team of expert biologists, gives guests the chance to make a donation to the Palace Foundation, which is dedicated to protecting the local ecosystem and mitigating our carbon footprint, so that we can continue to enjoy the harmonious melodies of these incredible species for many more generations to come.

3 Reasons Why You Should Take Up Bird Watching Next Vacation

3. Observing rare birds and wildlife creates lasting memories.

 

Whether practiced alone, as a couple, with friends, or with the entire family, bird watching is a life-enriching experience which will provide great memories and intelligent conversation starters. The excitement of being the first one to spot a unique species of bird makes for not only an educational experience but can also get quite competitive! In fact, as well as being provided with professional binoculars during the tour, guests who take part in the Birdwatching Experience at Moon Palace receive a checklist of all the birds they have seen, as well as photos of the tour, along with a keepsake notebook.

So, why not take time out to observe our colorful feathered friends next vacation? Who knows, it might become your next passion!

*Places need to be booked for the Bird Watching Experience at least one day in advance by visiting the Palace Vacation Planner desks, where guests will be provided with all the details regarding times, donation and recommendations.

I want to give a BIG shout out to Fernando for his #TopShelfService. My family and I have been on vacation for 7 nights at the #SunriseMoonPalace and his service was the perfect example of why you would come to this resort. If you enjoy Indian cuisine, this is your spot! Enjoy

Bending over backwards to help

just have to say that over the years I have been to plenty of the Pace Resorts. I guess you could say I’m spoiled because I just expect excellent service. Miguel, Alberto, Kaila,Ricardo and Jorge among others at the Pier 8 restaurant actually exceeded my expectations
