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.

  • Arrival in 4 x 4 Toyota and discovery of the mangroves thanks to a charming couple and full of humor. The man was visiting us, while the woman was taking pictures of us (about 200 pictures) From the birth of oysters on the roots, through baby jellyfish and pelican nests, it was an extraordinary day. We paddled from mangrove to mangrove through small canals. Sometimes in the shade, sometimes in full sun We even bathed in this water at about 35 degrees. We finished the walk under a marquee to exchange our impressions over a good cold beer and a tray of fresh cut fruit offered. A truly unforgettable day. (thanks to Indiana who served as our interpreter)

  • With small boats we have passed through beautiful mangrove streets, where we have seen sea stars, seahorses and piles of oysters attached you have branches of the mangroves... A relaxing and pleasant ride to live in the Park of Restinga!!
