Price Breakdown:


The macaws this colorful and amazing animals are some of our local treasures. The macaws are large birds, up to 80 cm long, and are found mostly on the coastal slopes of mountainous regions on both sides of the country, from sea level to 4900 and even 6500 feet.

The macaws help as an indicator of habitat health, as they are selective when it comes to their sites for feeding and reproduction, when is a disturbance in their area, they are the first to disappear.
At the south of the Puerto Vallarta city we can find this wonderful species we have two (green and red), the green macaw has an endemic subspecies (Ara militaris Mexicana) a very attractive bird, unfortunately because of its beauty is one of the most affected by the national and international ilegal traffic of the species.

There are different areas of nesting and feeding that are protected by premises committed to the natural wealth of the area. One of these areas is the Sanctuary of the Guacamayas, a site where local efforts allow the design, construction and installation of artificial nests to support the growth of the local population of the green macaw. Likewise, because of the location of the sanctuary, it is an excellent site for sighting other striking birds such as the Colima pigmy owl, the brown-backed solitaire, orange-fronted parakeets, warblers, woodpeckers, among many others.

During this amazing trip, you will not only enjoy an unforgettable day full of great memories and great photos, you will be helping to the local efforts to conserve their nesting sites.
