San Pancho, considered the cultural capital of Riviera Nayarit, now features a brand new ecotourism attraction thanks to the efforts of the San Pancho Bird Observatory, the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau, and other organizations and businesses interested in conservation, which have collaborated in the new informational signage project of three birdwatching routes.

A general information sign was placed in the village’s main square, as well as additional signs along the observation routes Camino a las Minas, La Laguna and La Boquita. The signs include geographical information featuring images and a listing of the 40 most common species in the area. They also have a detailed route map and QR codes have been implemented to link Google maps and the website aVerAves.org, which allows folks to upload images of birds seen throughout Mexico.

“The birds are allowing us to create different programs aimed at local sustainability,” commented Luis Morales, Director of the San Pancho Bird Observatory.

Aside from San Pancho, Chacala is another town in Riviera Nayarit where this recreational activity is generating ecological awareness thanks to the programs set in place by the San Pancho Bird Observatory in collaboration with the Guayabitos Rotary Club and the International Rotary.

The San Pancho Bird Observatory is a non-profit organization promoting bird and habitat conservation by integrating education, community development and science at the local communities of the Banderas Bay region. For more information about them, please visit http://www.birdingsanpancho.net/

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”
Eduardo González

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad.”
Aaron Fisher

“Without doubt, Vallarta Lifestyles is the best positioned Magazine in the region. Its solid presence keeps a strong and always fresh vision about the destination, as well as activities. Besides, I consider it a great intellectual contribution for the well written articles that are in each issue.”
