A lot of rainforest animals in this area. Howler monkeys, caiman, river otters, macaws, piranha, turtles, lizards, jaguars, capybara, and more, more, more. Put it's also very peaceful. Just a great spot.

We traveled to the lake early in the morning and immediately spotted several caimans, and were fortunate to see river otters who were on a swimming spree. We fished (catch and release) for piranhas, and enjoyed many birds nesting and squawking across the lake.

The trek to the lake through the jungle was great. We went aboard a platform boat driven by Leo who pushed and steered the boat to strategic spots where we saw otters, birds and went pirana fishing. It was a great experience

The hike was terrific. However, we ended up with a Spanish-speaking guide, so we had little interpretive information about what we saw. We had little time to look for sea otters because we were slow on the hike. The rest of the group had gone...More
