If you want a local bird guide in San Blas, contact Francisco Garcia of Safaris San Blas. He speaks English, knows the birds well, is a dedicated conservationist,and will go all out to be a good host. His car is beat up, but will get you everywhere you need to go (and if he had more business, he could probably afford a new one!). One of the highlights: La Tovara boat tour at night. During our stay, he helped us see limpkins, macaws, parulas, magpie jays, owls, trogans, wood storks, snail kites, bare-throated tiger herons, blue-footed boobies, and so much more! He also helped us learn about local culture, including a local cooperative coffee plantation and the indigenous Huichols. We also got to meet his wonderful family. What a treat!
