San Blas Birding Tours





Take an exotic journey to the quiet fishing village of San Blas, about 3.5 hours north of Puerto Vallarta, to perhaps the most popular birdwatching destination in all of Mexico.  In this relatively small area, we can find over 300 different bird species and at least 25 that are endemic only to this area.





We will explore the seemingly endless wetlands, estuaries and mangrove lagoons, seeing such species as the Rufous-Bellied Chachalaca, Lilac-Crowned Parrot, and Elegant Trogon.  The highlight of this trip is a jungle boat tour through the beautiful La Tovara wildlife refuge, where such species as Purple Gallinules, Bare-Throated Tiger Herons, and the impressive Boat-billed Heron call home.

Schedule: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:00 AM, 6:30 AM, 9:00 AM this tour is seasonal and runs April through November only.

Duration: 11.5 Hours Approximately
