Piedras Blancas National park & Mangrove Boat tour
The majestic and unexplored Piedras Blancas National Park protects around of 16 thousand hectares of jungle and marine area, hundreds of these literally get under waters twice a day with the tide changes. Coordinating with the tides our experienced captain and nature guides will take you to explore the southern side of this unexplored national park and one of the largest patch of mangrove in the region as well… ESQUINAS RIVER MANGROVE. Navigating by the southern border of the park and then up the Esquinas river (the largest river coming in the Golfo Dulce) we will see the amazing and totally adapted vegetation that survives around there and all the amazing fauna which co-exist with it.
Crocodiles, dolphins, turtles, monkeys, coatis, scarlet macaws, toucans and many species of song birds are commonly spotted in our adventures.
