Your naturalist guide will lead you through the two-mile trail, his trained eye fixing on exciting sights and photo opportunities. Admire the scenery during a 20-minute stop at a look out point. Bird watching enthusiasts will have the opportunity to observe Scarlet Macaws, Aracari, Toucans, Herons, Egrets, Tinamous, Vultures and more.

.After leaving the park and safely observing the largest crocodile population from the bridge over the Tarcoles River, hop onto a boat, and float through mangrove canals.

Your boat trip, which takes a bit less than two hours, will allow for observation and photos of more bird species and crocodiles. Once back at base camp, enjoy a Homestyle lunch prepared for you.
