(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We sail along the lagoon and they not reached us eyes to admire so much flora and fauna. The pelicans adorned the branches of the dense vegetation and sea surgian between leaves stars. The Boatman gave us several for which the apreciaramos in our hands, then returned them to the water. La restinga National Park draws water from the tides and its plants filter sea water which gives it a great diversity of flora and fauna

  • Worth lovers of nature make the walk in boat, wildlife and canals make a ride relax and fascinating if can tell Guide to take them to the point where you can see which served as background for the reverse side of the ticket of 20 bsf, simply spectacular. The boat cobra 7000 no matter the number of crew members and the tour is one hour.
