monkey mountain

birding and hiking

In climbing this mountain, you not only get immersed in the jungle and forest en route–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 del 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.
