Marvelous landscapes and beautiful wildlife! Ask for Angel Tabasco if you speak French, this guide is great and has a sense to discover birds wherever they are. Very attentive and enables an awesome experience.

We spent the whole morning with Carlos. Visiting the mangroves, bird watching and breathing the nature. It was great time. Carlos is very well prepared, he has great knowledge of birds and he is easy to spend time with. It was a great family adventure.

25 30 dollars per person get there early in the morning. Tours all day guys on sidewalk soliciting. Great experience. Lot of alligators. Nice birds and of course the pink water lagoon with thousands of flamingos
