Birding Site Guide

San Blas can be reached by a 2hr bus from Tepic. We stayed at the Hotel Ranchero which was basic and cost 150 pesos for a double. There are several different areas good for birding. On the Sewage-pond trail (lots of mosquitos) I saw many waterbirds as well as Black-throated Magpie-Jays. At the castle on the hill we saw Mexican Parrotlets and on the outskirts of town I saw Black-vented Oriole and Paraque. On the way to La Bajada there were mangroves and shrimp ponds with Yellow-winged Caciques and many waterbirds. 64 species including 14 lifers.
