I loved the beauty and variety of this nature reserve. Our group went on the two hour tram tour which was... More

My family of four booked the English speaking tour on Wednesday at 2 PM. Our guide, Carlos, was very personable. When he knew I was particularly interested in birds, he went out of his way to point them out to me and help identify them either by sight or by their calls. Beautiful area, enjoyed the lighthouse tour also. Thanks,... More

Visited the park twice in one day, first for the daylight lighthouse/mangrove tour and again for the night time tour of the biobay and lighthouse. Biobay tour takes you along the boardwalk at night to see the biobay, not too bright if the moon is out but still worth seeing if you are in the area. Limited tours in english-make... More

My husband and I took the tour they offer at night to see part of the Bio Bay and other attractions. For the cost we were very satisfied and our tour guide was awesome, very knowledgeable of his surroundings. For the Bio Bay all you can see is where the mangroves are at and with the stick they give you,... More

The evening Bio Bay tour was boring...loved the trams but overall boring and the glow is gone...they say it is because of all the evening light around the area but really those little glow bugs are just not reproducing so much in the bay...we could only see them in the areas close to the mangroves.

We did the day time tour that takes you to the lighthouse, the mangrove swamp, and the rocky coast. The views up by the lighthouse were fabulous. It was the wrong time of the month for the biobay, but they had some bags containing the organisms for us to look at in a dark room. The tour guide was excellent.... More

Educational and interesting. The best part of this tour is the view from the light house - you can see the stars clearly in the dark of the night. We also saw the moon moon coming out and full - what a beauty. However, the full moon hampered what we could see in the bay the planktons. Note: there are... More

If you like tours where you can learn about local ecosystems, you must do this tour. I went to the 2pm english speaking tour. Karina was our guide and did a wonderful job explaining things along the way.
