Mangrove Swamp Tour - Other Activity Monterrico - Guatemala

Waking up at 5 a.m. might not be everyone's cup of tea, but the early bird catches the worm and there are a lot of birds to be seen in the mangroves. Watching the sunrise from a pristine lagoon is not half bad either. Paddled boat trips take approximately two hours (engine noise scares off the wildlife) and are the best way to experience the wonder of mangroves. Caimans, iguanas, herons, kingfishers, jacanas and pelicans may be seen. Don’t forget your binoculars or your mosquito repellant. Cost is $5.25 per person. Guides can be found everywhere, usually they will find you, (make sure they have ID) or pop up to the Tortugario and ask there. Sunset tours also possible.
