My spouse and I spent 3-4 hours there and are going back tomorrow morning for more. The estuary connects to the ocean via a public beach and there is a lot to see. In the estuary, we saw wading birds, waterfowl, pelicans, raptors and much...More
This sanctuary has a vast variety of unique birds 🐦, and is an excellent place to capture epic pictures. Unfortunately they have a pollution problem that is killing off the brown pelicans in the sanctuary. Otherwise amazing.
We had stopped by the Holiday Inn as we could see a pond next to the parking area. At first we didn't know it was an Estuary and Bird Sanctuary. Since I'm very interested in bird photography we walked to the pond and saw quite...More

As you pass the shops on your left of the little strip mall, all the big hotels are on your right. Cabo Azul, the Mayan is the last one you pass before the roundabout.
