Lo de Marcos Estuary: A Sanctuary for Bird Watching

Aug. 23, 2022

Lo de Marcos is located north of Puerto Vallarta. This Riviera Nayarit micro-destination is jealously guarded by the Sierra Madre mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Lo de Marcos is a small town, where narrow streets and houses with colorful facades stand out. In addition, there is a beach of fine sand that is bathed by a sea with moderate waves, where you can enjoy the relaxed lifestyles of this place.

Lo de Marcos Beach has an extension of approximately one kilometer. Walking to the north, you can find a natural estuary, where a large number of birds fly around and some of them are migratory.

Over the years, expert photographers have been documented these birds, so you can visit this link to see their work in detail.

On the other hand, different service providers offer guided walks to this impressive place, as well as to other surrounding paradises.

By the way, when you visit Lo de Marcos Estuary, it is highly recommended to use biodegradable repellent, as well as comfortable and appropriate clothing that protects you from sun exposure.

“Since its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us.”

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”
