Cozumel residents, members of the Cozumel Birding Club and birdwatchers from all over are eagerly anticipating the 9th “Festival de las Aves Isla Cozumel,” which is scheduled to take place October 20 – 22nd.


The agenda of activities includes conferences with bird specialists, photo exhibits, a bird first aid workshop, education workshops environmental, and a panel with experts in nature photography and of course birdwatching tours in strategic sites and invite those interested in nature, birds and ecotourism to participate.

The Festival had its beginnings 9 years ago in 2009 in a very small way and only with a few participants in Cozumel who were interested in birds. In February 2014, the Cozumel Birding Club was founded. Later, as the club grew, the  festival was organized and eventually in  2014, the Festival Committee was created, which focuses on promoting the festival and it’s expansion to increase awareness of the amazing nature Cozumel has in the form of both resident and migratory birds.

The “Isla Cozumel Birding Festival” promotes bird watching as a sustainable tourism strategy on the island, and at the same time, is designed to inform and build interest in the vital role birds play in the balance of our ecosystems as well as their impact on life.

lugar, esperan ansiosamente el 9º Festival de las Aves de la Isla de Cozumel que tendrá lugar los días 20 y 22 de octubre.


El programa de actividades incluye conferencias con especialistas en aves, exposiciones de fotografías, un taller para primeros auxilios de aves, talleres de educación medioambiental, y un panel de expertos en fotografía de la naturaleza y, por supuesto, excursiones para observar aves en sitios estratégicos e invitación para que participen aquellos que estén interesados en la naturaleza, en las aves y en el ecoturismo.


El festival se inicio hace 9 años, en el año 2009 en una forma muy reducida y sólo con unos cuantos participantes que en Cozumel estaban interesados en las aves. En Febrero de 2014 se fundo el Cozumel Birding Club (Club de Observación de aves de Cozumel.)  Posteriormente, conforme crecía el club, se organizó el festival y para 2014 se crea el Festival de l Comité; éste se centra en promover el festival y su expansión para  mayor difusión sobre la increíble naturaleza de aves que existen en Cozumel, tanto residentes como migratorias.


El Festival de Aves de la Isla de Cozumel promueve la observación de aves como estrategia turística sustentable en la Isla y a la vez está diseñado para informar y crear interés en el papel vital que juegan las aves en el equilibrio e nuestros ecosistemas, así como su impacto en la vida.
