A Bird Watcher's Paradise:
Over 296 species of birds are to be found in the Ixtapa area and one of the best places to start is early in the morning on the Palma Real Golf Course which is alive with the sounds of birds. Palma Real is also designated as a Nature Preserve.
Another wonderful area to bird-watch is along the bicycle path through the Ecological Preserve which skirts the mangrove swamp and travels through the tropical forest to Playa Linda.
I display some of my pictures taken around the Ixtapa area of only a few of these wonderful birds.
It is such an experience to listen to the birds as the sun rises as you play the first nine holes of Palma Real.
Your Vacation Paradise.
