Birding Site Guide

It is possible to visit this site in a day trip from Mazatlan but it takes 3 and half hours to arrive by bus. A bus leaves the terminal in Mazatlan for Durango at 06.00. Ask to get off at El Palmito (at km 200) and follow the instructions in the site guide. It would probably be better to stay closer to arrive earlier. You could even camp up there as there is nobody around. Tufted Jays were quite easy to see on several parts of the trail and I also had a pair of Military Macaws at the Barranca itself. 37 species including 14 lifers.
