What the birders say

Thanks for your visit, excellent migration home.

"Vidal took us on a hike up Monkey Mountain, he is a great & very knowledgable guide. Highly recommended."
Cyndi Anderson
"Vidal is great. Got us to just the locations we wanted to go, planned everything out and kept us going at the speed we wanted birding all day long."
Mark Shieber
As an amateur bird watcher, I really appreciated Vidal’s knowledge, skill, and passion in birding. His company was wonderful (along with ‘Uncle Benny’s’) and we both enjoyed our time exploring the local bird species of Nayarit."
