Corcovado Tour in Juan Venado Island


The adventure start on the boat from Las Peñitas. We will get 14 kilometers inside the reserve. During this tour we will watch a lot of migratory and local birds among the mangrove forest.

The river will get norrow as we advance inside the reserve, which will allow us to better appreciate the fauna and flora. After 8 kilometers of tour, we will star seeing small crocodile, taking sunbath on the banks or hunting a few meters away from us. Birds quantity and crocodile size (1 or 2 meters) will increase as we advance (crocodiles are completely inoffensive to us).

We will stop a while under the forest shadow, and will enjoy tropical fruits brought by our local guide.
After exploring the core zone of the protected area, we will start the returning travel. We will stop in a rustic pier and walk to visit the Palo de Oro project installation inside the reserve. There you could ask and take luch (delicious and fresh fried fish with a natural juice, not included on the tour fee); and, if your lunch take a while to come to your table, you can take a beer in front of the beach.

We will take again the boat after visiting Palo de Oro, and will return to Las Peñitas, where the tour will end.
