Mangrove Tour




The delta formed by the Sierpe and Terraba Rivers holds great biological wealth. Here is found the largest mangrove forest system in Central America. The importance of this was recognized by the Costa Rican government and it is now a protected area.

Mangroves which were once considered worthless swampland have been shown to be of great benefit to man.
They are the nurseries where many of our fish and shrimp species breed and produce more that any other possible use of the land. Mangroves also play an important role in improving water quality and controlling sedimentation and erosion.

After a leisurely breakfast enjoy a boat ride to the Mangrove forest. This a chance to explore the small channels and a good opportunity to spot squirrel monkies, caimans, crocodiles, boas and some of the almost 100 species of birds that can be found here.
