San Blas, Mexico birding: August conditions and safety (1 Viewer)

Hello everyone,
I am thinking of traveling to San Blas for a week of birding this month. Does anyone have up-to-date information on local safety? I recollect seeing negative travel advice for the area a whole ago. I am thinking of flying into Puerto Vallarta and then renting a car and driving up to San Blas. Does anyone have experience with this itinerary? What kind of local conditions can I expect in August?

Many thanks for your replies,
Eildert

We did this in February. Assuming nothing has changed, I would say that it's very safe. Puerto Vallarta is a major tourist resort, San Blas is a pretty low key coastal resort, and the drive between is straightforward. Obviously bad things can happen anywhere, but nothing I'm aware of or experienced gave us concern over safety.
Now weather might be another story. I suspect it will be very hot and humid, possibly pretty wet, and San Blas is notorious for biting insects.
