Meet the most amazing wildlife
Nuevo Vallarta is a renowned wildlife destination. It’s located near Sierra de Vallejo, a stunning biosphere reserve of forests, mountains and mangroves. It’s home to the elusive jaguar and lots of tropical bird species. These include green kingfishers, hawks and pigmy owls. Take an eco-tour and you can hunt for them yourself.
On Nuevo Vallarta holidays, you also have a chance to see hawksbill, Olive Ridley and leatherback turtles. These beautiful creatures come ashore each year from August to January to lay their eggs. Efforts are being made to conserve these turtles and watch over their eggs in a local turtle sanctuary. Tourists can visit here to learn more about it, and even help release turtles into the sea. If you’re game, you can also see crocodiles here too!
