Sailing through the north side of Banderas Bay you will find this magnificent place, which is a natural protected area, besides being a sanctuary and habitat of a high number of marine birds. The most characteristic animal of this area is the one called “Bobo Bird” that has blue legs. This bird, together with the beautiful sea gulls, herons and frigates, will amaze you so deeply.
