a peaceful walk

We had a nice relaxing walk through the sanctuary. We enjoyed the bird blind and the path. A nice way to walk off our supper

I read trip advisor comments of many disappointment about the San Jose's estuary but I wanted to experience my self and just to be cautious I took a tour with Birding Los Cabos , it included a guided tour of the estuary and a small pelagic tour . Joanne our guide was very knowledgeable she was very sensitive to the... More

Highly recommend a trek through this well preserved parcel of land just off the main boulevard into San Jose Del Cabo. Fun to see the cows grazing on the river and the variety of birds. Well worth a visit. Took 1-2 hours depending on your interest.

We looked for this place for a while, none of the locals knew what this was. Once arrived it was dry desolate and many parts just filled with trash.

This is a beautiful natural area with a bike or walk trail through it. Waterside paved path has not been repaired from the hurricane damage. Not many birds but lots of grazing cattle.

Although the locals don't seem to sure where this is, it its easily found from underneath the road bridge that goes to the new marina. The bird life is rich and varied. A great walk to the end (hurricane damage stops you short of the beach) and back again.

As a local, It hurts badly to see this magical place in such conditions. The origins of Los Cabos with the Pericues was exactly under these palmtrees to hide from the sun, and pristine water to fish and hunt birds. Today this Estuary has been eaten away by construction and development. And what is left is a graywater pond from... More

The walk to town from the resort has been shortened as the water level has risen since the hurricane but that has just made it better for the wildlife there. Small inconvenience for us humans.

While the upkeep of the walk has been deterred by Hurricane Odile, and many parts are washed out (the part linking the Holiday Inn to the walkway), the walk is still amazing. Lots of birds and nice scenery. It's nice to walk along on the way to/from downtown if staying in the hotel zone as an alternative to the main... More

I loved it! Great birds and great sanctuary! The birds were not spoiled (didn't go up to you for food) and instead were scared of approaching humans. The paths sometimes get a bit marshy, but most of the time they're great! It could be hard to find, but this is the directions if you're staying at a resort in San... More
