Nice walk

Nice scenery when going for a walk. Protected nature and lots of different birds. Just dropped by during a city stroll in San Jose del Cabo

Lots of birds, worth the effort to find
Oct 2020
This was a really nice place to walk around. It was a little hard to find, especially after reading older reviews. Basically you follow the road along Zona Hotelera, keep going straight past all the roundabouts until you can't go further. (old reviews stated that you park/enter by the Holiday Inn... there is an abandoned-looking hotel which I'm guessing WAS Holiday Inn). You'll see a small "farm", some goats, chickens, horses (?). The entrance is near the sign reading "Fin de Ciclovia". Follow the path, it will turn into a boardwalk and then continue along the beach. We went close to sunset and saw a lot of different kinds of birds. Worth the visit.

Wonderful Part of San José
Feb 2020
We were delighted to find this section of SJdC devoted to wildlife, after the urban experience of staying close to the Zona Hotelera. The river estuary with the bird life and relatively few people was a welcome relief for us on a beautiful day. You can spend hours in there watching the various types of birds both in the sky and on the water. You will be amazed at the variety of birds and the tranquility that you can get spending a few hours there. There are several platforms to get you up off the ground, which provide lovely vistas.

wonderful place to stop and birdwatch
Mar 2020
We found this by accident and went back every day we were there. It is very tranquil and we spent a fair amount of time here. We saw lots of different birds, most of which we do not see when we are home. There was a concrete path that went most of the way around the area but it was apparently destroyed by a bad storm a few years ago and has not been repaired.

Nice stroll along the waterways
Feb 2020
Although not well marked, you can follow a map along the trail past the Holiday Inn to the trailhead. There's a few signs saying it is the Estuary but not much else there, not even any seating. The trail is more of a dirt path but offers nice views of the local birds and some cows & horses out to pasture. I also came across the Policia parked in the area but they said 'no problemo'. Unfortunately, the end of the trail is at the water reatment plant & it's a little nasty. You can then take a side road & are very close to the plaza. I walked back along the road as once was enough for me!

Great Place for Getting Away
Feb 2020
The entrance to this sanctuary is tough to find, it is located behind the water treatment plant. However, your persistence is rewarded with some spectacular scenery. You see more birds and wildlife, and its as if you have left civilization behind. Well worth seeking out.

Quiet getaway from the hussle and bussle
Jan 2020
It is easy to walk along the river on your own. You will see other birdwatchers/photographers, school groups, runners, horseback riders and locals. Lots of water birds to see and beach to relax and picnic. Not easily accessible for those with mobility issues because of uneven ground, but easy enough for most.

Oasis in a busy city
Jan 2020
From our Holiday Inn Resort, we walked a couple of times, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, into the estuary pathway. The greenery and the multitude of birds were wonderful to view. A great opportunity for photographers!
