TOURS

Sayulita

4 hr. Trip

We offer birding tours as we are avid naturalists who want you to experience the real Sayulita and all that this beautiful region offers: from the squawking gossip of chachalacas to the cries of wheeling gulls, Sayulita is full of bird song, and bird life.

 

As the sun goes down on the beaches of Sayulita you will see, as if they were floating spirits, silhouettes that glide over the sea, bodies that sink and re-emerge waiting for the next wave, facing the sunset, the dazzling tones of the farewell to the sun. And surfing is one of the main attractions of this town of fishing tradition, which lovers of this sport come from all corners of the world, as a sacred appointment, with their boards on their backs, their golden skin and passion for marine waters.

Sayulita is a paradise for bird enthusiasts.

Monkey Mountain

6 hr. Trip

In climbing this mountain, you not only get immersed in the jungle and forest enroute–when you reach the top you’ll find absolutely stunning views of the Nayarit countryside and the Pacific Ocean in all directions. The summit of Monkey Mountain is probably the best viewpoint in the region: since its so close to the ocean, you see miles of coastline in both directions as well as the valleys and mountains that define the geography of this part of Nayarit. The views from the top are simply spectacular. The name, Cerro de Mono comes from the small clay figurines, or monos, that the indigenous peoples used to leave all over that mountain, looking out over the sea and the land.

Monkey Mountain is the largest of the hills to the south of Sayulita.

El Quelele

4 hr. Trip

Laguna El Quelele is an habitat surrounded by 100 hectares of mangrove forest that offers plenty of living creatures, including river crocodiles, raccoons, coatis, turtles and an amazing range of migratory and resident birds.

 

The El Quelele lagoon, Nayarit, Mexico, as an aquatic birds habitat. Monthly qualitative and quantitative observations of the aquatic birds present in the El Quelele lagoon, Nayarit, Mexico, were undertaken between June 1996 and May 1997. Forty aquatic birds species and 93,189 individuals were recorded and classified into six functional groups. In this commu- nity, Dendrocygna autumnalis was, by far, the most abundant species (85,146). The variation in the abundance and number of species throught the year shows that the lagoon is a temporary feeding and resting site for migrant and winter resident aquatic birds. This is evidence that show the role of El Quelele lagoon along the Pacific Flyway.

Formerly the town was known as Real de San Sebastián and later San Sebastián and since 1983, San Sebastián del Oeste is a village made up of ancient haciendas and century-old homes that have aged gracefully along with the surrounding mines and fields, filled with a valuable legacy of tradition and history.

 

In its glorious past, it was a prosperous and self-sustaining silver mining town with over four times the population it has now.

 

You can reach San Sebastian by air and you'll arrive at the small airstrip located just outside the town, which allows daily service from Puerto Vallarta. On the way, you'll enjoy impressive views of the hills and forests in the Sierra Madre.
