We recently stayed at a timeshare (Hacienda del Mar) in Cabo with friends
and discovered a bountiful wildlife scene that followed heavy rains that hit the area. In addition to the rich marine life among the rocks, we found a variety of mature native plants nestled around the golf course next to the resort. Those native plants sure ushered in the wildlife.
The photos below tell the story about what I’ll remember most:
- thousands of butterflies – especially sulfurs, Gulf Fritillaries, Queens – streaming through the resort after the rains
- iguanas like looking out on the ocean
- birds and their abundant nest sites, butterflies throughout the native habitat, and how the mostly non-native landscaped areas of the resort hosted less wildlife
