This basin is also an important contribution to good quality water for the city of Puerto Vallarta. This territory is easily accessible by unpaved for nature lovers and is the home of a population of Military Macaw, within this basin we can find their roost at night, feeding and reproduction sites. Although the precise sites where these activities are made by the macaws are inaccessible, we can see the Military Macaw on flights to and from them and in some places of feeding in the area. We’ll access the area by vehicle, with various walking stops of easy level at strategic birding hotspots at varying altitudes, where you can observe birds and other signs of wildlife.
In March, the breeding season is over, and with leaving nesting areas scattered throughout the region, the Military Macaw populations gather at smaller sites, and we can see them in greater numbers around the Jorullo, or in the afternoon, when approaching their roost at night, after the last visit to their favorite trees to feed.
