This tour combines tropical birding with the higher elevations of the Sierra Tuito Mountain Range. We are fortunate to be located where the sierra meets the volcanic belt splitting the country into two distinct avian regions. Here numerous endemic species from the North are found at their southern limit. In addition many Southern Mexico and Central American species can be encountered at their Northern limits!
Located one hour away of Puerto Vallarta is El Tuito, nestled in the green hills of the municipality, Cabo Corrientes, emerging as one of the premiere birding destinations in the near vicinity of Puerto Vallarta. Here visiting birders will discover an outstanding array of regional birds—epitomized by the colorful but elusive Rosy Thrush-Tanager,
