MANGROVE SWAMPS AT NIGHT
Did you know the 70% of the wildlife activity is either crepuscular or nocturnal? In other words night is the perfect time for a wildlife touSr. And there is no better place to see nocturnal creatures than a mangrove swamp. The Great Terraba River is the longest river and carries the largest volume of water in the country. Also, the river mouth has the largest area of mangroves in the country. In the middle section of this river there remains the two most ancient tribes of this area, the Terrabas and the Borucas. This trip will expose you to some of the inhabitants of this complex environment: Bats, Opossums, Sloths, Owls, Snakes, Raccoons, Frogs and of course the most fascinating one, the American Crocodile.
Normally, trips like this are only offered during day but this night tour will give you a entirely different perspective on this amazing area. We invite you to enjoy and to experience wildlife in a unique way on this night-time adventure.
