The nature experience is wonderful, va. for bird watchers. Unfortunately, no sprays help against the tiny mosquitoes. Despite the heat, I recommend a rain jacket with a hood and long pants. Our guide tied a towel over his nose and mouth before departure. Afterwards I knew why... We saw flamingos in several places, a dream! We saw two crocodiles. Good enough distance. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made a point of being quiet and not disturbing the animals. Good work! We also thank the driver for picking us up on time. Conclusion: again at any time, provided you have good protective clothing!

Had a really nice sunrise kayak trip! We saw a crocodile, flamingos, rays and many birds! Also we were the only ones in the mangrove in the morning which made it a special experience! Good service where you will be picked up at your hotel in the morning and great contact with Diego and Carlos!
