The salt marshes of Puerto Vallarta are in a protected natural area and an ecological conservation zone with more than one hundred species of birds and almost thirty species of amphibians, reptiles and mammals.

BEGIN YOUR TRIP ON A BOAT

You can book a tour with your hotel concierge. You can also take Avenida Francisco Medina Ascencio to the pier in front of Plaza Iguana (beside the bullring La Paloma) and book a tour directly.

The small boats have space for up to thirteen people and calmly sail through the canals and under the tunnels.

DISCOVER THE FLORA AND FAUNA

Enjoy the amazing biodiversity and learn how important mangroves are for the ecosystem. Not only do their calm waters shelter wildlife and serve as nesting grounds for fish, they also act as protective barriers that regulate the climate and nutrients in the water.

Along the long roots of the mangroves that submerge into the crystal clear water you will find green iguanas, raccoons, violin crabs and other wildlife. 

FAMILY TRIP: ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION WORKSHOPS
