Mangrove, Spring and Sun
La Tovara is a spring located in the municipality of San Blas Nayarit (Mexico), which gives rise to a natural freshwater pond in the middle of an estuary at the base of a mountain range. The area is very large and full of natural channels between the jungle that flow into the Matanchén Bay in the Pacific Ocean. The vegetation is lush and full of tropical plants, including giant ferns and mangroves, and a diverse fauna that includes crocodiles, turtles, jaguars, ocelots, armadillos, and a great variety of birds and fish.
You can visit the place by boat on a trip through these channels by embarking either at a site called "La Aguada" near the port of San Blas (long trip) or at the tourist pier of La Tovara (short trip). Once in the canals you can go, always by water, to a nearby crocodile and to the set where the movie "Cabeza de Vaca" was filmed. The Tovara is found in so called wetland lands, important for the biodiversity of Mexico especially in waterfowl (white heron, pink heron "pico de espatula", Garza canela pico de bote ", tiger heron, flamingos, Luisvienteveos, among others). This site has been recognized as a RAMSAR site in Mexico,
