Vidal was punctual, passionate, patient and knowledgeable. He continually demonstrated a genuine concern...More

The birds of coastal Nayarit are amazing, and Vidal knows them all. He can identify them by their song or call, and then he hunts until he finds them. We saw many birds we had never seen before and learned a lot. We recommend this...More
