#2 of 41 in Nature in Venezuela
Tour through the various marshes connected to Laguna de la Restinga and get an intimate look at the abundant indigenous wildlife. Set out on the salt lagoon in a boat, or join a kayak group. The cleanliness of the water makes it especially easy to spot starfish, jellyfish, and other creatures below the surface. Pelicans frequent the area, and the tours can take you up close to them. As you pass through the mangrove forests, you will likely stop at a sandy beach for a chance to explore on land. At the end, several locals peddle their wares of jewelry and snacks.
