Hotel Marina El Cid Spa and Beach Resort is one of the most popular Riviera Maya resorts for luxury vacations. Travelers who plan a stay at this oceanfront resort are in for a rare treat this summer, as they will have exclusive access to a great vacation experience.

One of the many reasons travelers enjoy spending time in the Riviera Maya area of Mexico is that they have access to numerous amenities and activities. The experience one has while staying at Hotel Marina El Cid Spa and Beach Resort will make memories that last a lifetime. A rare opportunity that many do not get to see is the variety of uncommon plant and wildlife that is indigenous to the area.

In 2005, Hurricane Wilma strongly impacted the entire region of Riviera Maya. Tiger Herons commonly nested in this area and many locals were worried this species would face extinction. Those who visit Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort will be delighted to see these birds have returned and they can visit the conservation area, El Caribe Nursery, within the hotel grounds. Native to Central America and Northern Colombia, this is a rare chance to see these beautiful wading birds, named for the stripes that adorn their necks, up close and personal.

Hotel Marina El Cid Spa and Beach Resort informs travelers that they can see the herons at different stages of their development during their stay. Throughout the last year, in particular, even more nesting has occurred and some exciting events have taken place. Hatchlings were seen migrating from their nest, collecting food, and more. In 2014, Lea Parra Gomez, a graduate student at the Mesoamerican Polytechnic University of Tenosique, Tabasco conducted a very interesting study that linked hotel tourism with the nursery activity of these animals aligning with environmental education. Visiting Hotel Marina El Cid Spa and Beach Resort is the perfect way to learn more about this interesting study, and these wonderful creatures.
