There are over 300 species of birds in the San
Blas region. San Blas
birdwatching guides are extremely knowledgeable
of the birds and wildlife in the area. Birding tours
are available to several locations in
the area. More information can be found on the San Blas
Ecotours website, at www.sanblasecotours.com.
Singayta Birding Trip
A a few miles drive from San Blas, this
location is a popular birding site.
Birding by Water
Boats can be hired for guided mangrove estuary or
coastal birding. If you are interested in the exotic
birds and aquatic animals and big crocodiles, living
in the mangrove zone, we recommend the San Cristobal
Estuary trip, or taking a naturalist with you to the
La Tovara National Park.
Jose Ortiz and Naturalist Guide Manuel Lomeli explain
the life in the mangrove estuary habitat.
