A traditional fishing village 25 km south of Puerto Vallarta, Boca de Tomatlan is where we will board a private panga and cruise the coast until reaching the isolated and beautiful beach village of Yelapa. You will then walk to a small up-river lagoon that provides habitat for a varied population of waterbirds, including herons, egrets, and Brown Pelicans. Sometimes, the Black-and-white Hawk-Eagle will be soaring overhead and Military Macaws may be heard and seen. The sunset cruise leaves Yelapa en route to the landmark and protected marine reserve at Los Arcos National Marine Park, where you will have many opportunities to watch shorebirds and egrets, cormorants, pelicans, and Magnificent Frigatebirds staking out their evening roosting spots on the islands. The surrounding waters support abundant marine life, including Humpback Whales and Manta Rays; they may be spotted but there is no guarantee.
