Aquatic tour between mangroves


We take a boat from Las Peñitas community and get into mangrove ecosystem through a estuary (see arm). We will slow progress into the reserve so we could appreciate the must fauna as possible. After 6 or 7 kilometers (4 miles) we will return for the same way. Arriving to a small quay, we will walk 200 meters (0.12 mille) on the island on the sea direction, and will visit a community project with palm ranch, bathroom and shower in front of an excellent beach to swim.
