Amazing national park to visit... very secluded and you really feel like you are out with nature. We loved the 6am canoe tour of the canals and saw lots of wildlife.
Beautiful park to visit with a kayak. We saw a lot of different monkeys, caiman, birds and frogs. We rented some kayaks in the town, and from there you have to cross the big river into the park. Plan about 2 tot 2,5 hours if you want to kayak, then you have enough time to go there and look for wildlife.
The river is nice and secluded in nature, this is the best bet for enjoying wildlife and scenery. Don't bother paying the $15 park entrance fee, it's a complete rip off. There is one path along the beach that goes no where with piles of trash at each point. U can get in for free if you go to the beach side. Spend your money on some local made art instead. The beach is nice but turbulent so don't go to far out.
Small national park, actually quite large, but only accessible by boat, since most of it is mangroves. A small trail, jaguar trail, you can walk to from town and is quite nice. Plenty of animals even during mid day. Iguana, birds, spiders and snakes
Entrance will usually be included with your stay at a resort here. If you can get a water tour, that's really where the bang for your buck is. The town is very small, with just a strip of small shops and cafes. You can do it all within an hour and have time left over. But the amount of wildlife you can see on the river is amazing.
