Discover the amazing diversity of wildlife in the reserve with our 3-hour El Naranjo Wildlife Tour. This excursion begins in the vibrant town of El Naranjo, located at the head of the reserve, where we launch our kayaks into the narrow upper section of the estuary.

Quietly and with your eyes wide open, there is a great chance of spotting a wide variety of water birds, as well as turtles, boas, iguanas and even sea otters in this almost unreal landscape. As we continue paddling through the dense mangroves towards the mid-sections of the estuary, the channel widens, providing a gentle glide from the blades to El Paredón.

This is one of our longest paddle tours (9.5 km) and is perfect for keen paddlers and wildlife lovers. A minimum of 2 people per tour is required.

The cost per person is Q275, which includes transfers to El Naranjo, guide, life jackets, dry bag and soft drinks.

* This tour is tidal dependent so early registration is essential for optimal tidal conditions. Advance reservation is required.
