Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
                    From Puerto Vallarta drive to the South of the Bay.  Our first stop is by Los Arcos to observe magnificent frigate birds, pelicans, blue footed and brown boobies among other sea birds.  Stop on route for our continental breakfast.  Continue to the Military Macaws Sanctuary where you´ll witness the local efforts to recover the population of this endangered species. Soft hike in the Sanctuary looking for the nests, different birds, of course Macaws along with great views; this is a great place for birding, as well as for photography as you learn about a great conservation effort.  Hike into a tropical forest. Our last stop will take us to Las Juntas y Los Veranos in search of endemic deciduous forest birds, like San Blas Jay, West Mexican Chachalaca, Golden-cheeked woodpecker, Citreoline Trogon and much more. 

    Before returning we´ll stop to fill in our check list and enjoy some snacks

    Our tour guide for the military macaw tour was Fernando. He was very excited and knowledgeable about birds. I have done other bird tours in other places and sometimes you get a guide who might know birds, but doesn't seem excited or interested in them b/c it is just their job.
