(4.2/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Gently meander through cane fields, navigate around rapids, and drift near the mangrove swamps of Black River. The 53.5 km (33.2 mi) river supports over 100 species of bird, including the locally nicknamed "Jesus bird"--known for its technique of wading that creates the illusion of walking on water. The river's name comes from the dark, glimmering hue of the murky water, a result of thick layers of decomposing vegetation on the riverbed. Take a boat tour along the winding route and keep an eye out for crocodiles gliding through the swampy depths. Don't forget your sunscreen.
