From the Visitors Center, we will take a boat and travel to the reserve. For around 20 minutes we will watch several species of bird, including grey heron and tricolored heron.
After a boat travel of 30 minutes, we will land in a rustic pier in Juan Venado reserve. We will come to the Palo de Oro Project center, where a sea turtle nursery is set. In the center, our guide will explain the conservation work performed there, and will talk about the sea turtles nesting in the reserve.
