“Luis was really an excellent birding guide for my four days birding in the Riviera Maya area of the Yucatan Peninsula. My focus was on the endemics in this area of the Yucatan and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. Luis knew the exact locations where we had the best chance of seeing the endemics and I saw all of them except for the Yucatan Nightjar which was missed mainly since I didn’t do any birding at dusk/night. His knowledge of the bird songs/calls was excellent and he was truly a pleasure to be with the whole time. I highly recommend him for birding in the Yucatan!”

Again, it was a real pleasure to go birding with you and let me know iif I can be helpful in any other way!

All my best,

Hi Luis
Thank you for a very good days birding. I exceeded my target of 10 new birds and the motmot was top of the list .Your ability to turn sounds into bird views exceeded any other guide I have been out with. I would recommend you to anyone who requires guiding in the Yucatan.
Yours faithfully

Hi bob- as we discussed, Luis ku Is the best birding guide in the Yucatan Peninsula.  He has taken out some of the best birders in north america and has been on the winning team of the Yucatan world series of birding.  He can take you to close in areas or some that are a few hours away.
