The tour starts when we pick up all our “Nature Lover guests” at their hotels, in a comfortable bus for the 1-½ hour transfer that will take you to Los Chiles, a culturally mixed village, only 4-km from the Nicaraguan border.

At Los Chiles, your boat will be ready for your river adventure, at that time we begin our 4-hour floating safari through the Tropical Rain Forest and pastures until we arrive at the marsh.

Some birds are residents in the area and it is possible to see hundreds of them, especially during the dry season.
