The Terraba-Sierpe river and wetlands is one of the largest mangrove forests in Central America. This ecosystem is on the Ramzar list of wetlands for international importance as it represents the birthing ground for endless species of salt and freshwater fishes as well as different types of crustaceans. We will travel 3 hours through a maze of canals and waterways which hosts many species of birds like herons, kingfishers, macaws, ibises, toucans, etc. You will also have the opportunity to spot crocodiles, sloths, monkeys and other fascinating wildlife all from the comfort of our boat. Join us on our Costa Rica Mangrove Experience!
