We start the tour by path we delve into the woods where the American crocodile can be found, and we can see how the fiddler crab merges with the mangrove.
Afterwards we change to a traditional canoe that is driven by an local “boga” who uses only one
rowing oar. He takes us for approximately 90 minute through the park's waterways, through
canals and mangrove tunnels, until we reach the Cienaga de Marchena - a paradise to observe
some of the 199 species of birds in the park.
