We walked along the sanctuary quite a few times. Very nice pretty walk. Go early in the morning as it can get very hot. Lots of pretty birds to see

“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We went mid morning. May be the wrong time no wind very hot. Not many birds out. Enjoyed watching and listening to group of drummers practicing under the bridge. Good place for bird watching when birds around.

“Birding in Los Cabos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

As with so many natural areas, the estuary is a real jewel, the only marsh in the area, and is threatened by overuse and invasive species. Fortunately, a number of local residents have been working to preserve this unique area. I joined a small group in February, 2014 for a visit to the estuary (half-day trip) and to La Paz (full day) guided by Maria Elena Muriel of "Birding-Los Cabos" http://www.birding-loscabos.com/. She is one of the community leaders in protecting the estuary and is very knowledgeable about the natural history of the estuary and the region. The outing provided excellent viewing of several endemics, and many winter residents, enhanced by interesting commentary by our guide. All participants enjoyed the outing and got good lists for the trip, including a number of life-birds.

“Great place for a walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

Parking and entrance by the Holiday Inn. Nice walk near sunset. Saw egrets, herons, pelicans, cormorants, ducks and some wandering cattle. Great piece of wilderness just steps from town.

“Quiet neighbors for Holiday Inn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

nice path to town and to see the birds! Quiet area right beside Holiday Inn. Cows that wander the area have cow bells on and are not a threat when we were there.
