We enjoyed hours walking the grounds. Highlights were seeing a number of chachalacas, red-winged blackbirds and green jays. It was disappointing not to see more butterflies (saw a few tiny butterflies), but I guess that has to do with the time of year. The bronze statues throughout were great replicas and info stones described the animals nicely.

This was a great place tucked away in the city of McAllen to walk about on trails and observe birds and local vegetation. Be sure to check out the house and other features on the grounds.

If you are looking for a place to walk and enjoy nature while you're in McAllen Texas, I would recommend the Quinta Mazatlan. There were plenty of trails to walk and a lot of nature to see. The home as well as the grounds are very well kept, lots of wildlife to see. Great place to pause and relax and slow the pace.

By a chance visit to the library nearby I was informed about touring this historic hacienda and grounds. I thought this grand house which was completely refurbished was very lavish in decorations of Spanish heritage. It certainly opened my eyes to the beauty this place exhibits and also the surrounding acreage devoted to nature is very informative and sedentary to your inner spirit. I slowly meandered for 3 hours along the well-maintained paths just thinking and wondering about the environment. One enclave I sat and just admired the different bird species moving about in the trees and brush. Along the paths are filled with many different displays of wildlife indicative of this area in the past before man developed and took over the habitat. I want to return when the flowers and trees are out in full display and to resume my pleasant feeling in nature again in south Texas !

We went to the Hector Astroga. Wildlife photographer speaker series. It was a disaster. The room was too small and the sound system was terrible. They used a portable speaker the ruined the presentation. The TV was too low and half of the crowd could not see the whole screen. Where was the planning? Plenty of space in other rooms and use a better sound system. Shame on your management!
