We initiate the tour in “Cayo Los Pajaros” ( Bird Cay ) where we will observe the reproductive areas of the birds that inhabit the reserve. Depending of the time of year we may see many of the newborns being fed by their parents. We continue onto “Boca de Tiburon” ( Mouth of the Shark ) a Cay that is home to stalactite formations, formed over time in this humid region. We then navigate through the mangrove canals observing the different types of endangered mangroves and the natural flora found in the park. We then enter the area known as the “Bosque Humedo” ( Humid Forest ), where you will experience the silence of nature firsthand, momentarily broken by the birds that make this area their home. During the trip we will also visit various natural caves known as Saint Gabriel, “La Linea” ( The Line ), and “La Arena” ( The Sand ) where you will find indigenous art painted on the cave walls and let yourself imagine the many activities that were held in those caves over the years.Description
