We are RV travelers and we enjoy birding so when we found out about an RV Birding Caravan that was going down the West Coast of Mexico, we quickly signed up. We started the trip from St-Georges, QC on Nov. 1, 2005 and arrived home 14,000 miles and 5 months later on March 25, 2006. We drove on good to excellent roads throughout the trip with plenty of government owned Pemex gas stations. Gas cost 64 cents per litre or $2.43 per gallon in $US plus a 10 peso tip to the attendant.

We were 8 RV rigs and 15 birders in the caravan, just a nice size group to share the birding, fun and adventure. Of course, there is always some uncertainty about how a group of strangers will get along but we quickly became good friends and shared and enjoyed and helped each other from the very first day to the last.
We birded the beaches, jungles, mountains and even the slopes of erupting volcanoes as we sought out parrots, macaws, hummingbirds and more. We saw 16 different species of Hummingbirds! Bill took beautiful photos through the spotting scope of many of the 116 new birds we saw and a sampling can be viewed by clicking on the Links.
