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. 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
