Bird and Dine is pleased to welcome its newest entry – Mar al Cielo (Spanish for “Sea to Sky”) in Mexico. This is our first birding and dining site in Central America – the first of many, we hope for all you avid birders.
Mar al Cielo is a private eco-friendly jungle/ocean -front reserve on the Pacific Coast, run by Jodi and Carlos, and it offers opportunities to view whales and dolphins as well as a wide variety of birds, including the birders’ favourite – the endemic Orange-breasted Bunting. The bird list for the reserve exceeds 300 species, but there are also turtles, coatis, oppossums, and a host of butterflies and jungle flora. This conservation-minded reserve offers a range of activities in addition to its brunches and sunset dinners, and the dedicated birder or wildlife-lover can book a professionally-guided tour (plus a check list and the loan of guide books and binoculars ) before his or her meal to make the birding side more rewarding and to build up an appetite. Those interested in a little pampering are also catered for. Should you choose to stay, there are options to take part in yoga, massage, swimming and much more.
If you are in the area, please visit and let us know how you get on. And, as ever, please tell us about any other candidate pubs, hotels and restaurants that allow you to Bird and Dine. If you want to be really helpful and make it easier for us to process the entry, just complete our form to recommend a ‘bird and dine’ place. Otherwise you can mail us at birdanddine.
Happy birding all you birders!
