Nature Walk at Las Brisas Ixtapa is the hotel’s newest offering.
Bird watchers and nature lovers rejoice at Las Brisas Ixtapa, a lush resort on the Pacific Coast of Mexico which has debuted a new interactive nature walk for its guests.
To begin, travelers are greeted with a “mocktail” made with the local tetechas flower, which is grown on Mexican cacti. From there, professional nature guides walk guests through the surrounding jungle around the hotel, offering fun lessons on the vegetation, flora and fauna of the natural environment. While on this ecological adventure, guests will be able to spot native Mexican birds and other animals throughout the walk.
With more than 320 bird species in the Ixtapa area alone, guests will marvel at the sheer amount of avifauna available right at their fingertips, such as the rarely seen golden checkered woodpecker and groove-billed ani. With pictures and maps to help identify each species, the guest who spots the rarest in the group will win a prize from the resort.
Children participating in the resort’s complimentary children’s program are able to follow up at the Kid’s Club with a drawing contest of the most interesting thing they saw in the nature walk, with the possibility of the best drawings being featured on the resort’s Facebook page.
