This tour explores the mangroves of Terraba Sierpe, which are the most impressive of the world. It is the largest protected mangrove area within Central America. Eight species of mangroves are found here, the black mangrove, the red mangrove, the tea mangrove and the grey mangrove are the most common ones. While floating through mangrove channels, your naturalist guide will point out wildlife such as crocodiles, caimans, turtles, monkeys or coatis. Mangroves are also a paradise for bird watchers.
Mangroves are incredible plants with very big and long roots that have evolved to survive in spite of low oxygen content and in salty water. They attract large colonies of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and aquatic life forms. Right below the surface live pools of fresh water fish and mollusks.
This tour starts at 6am and lasts 7 hours approximately.
