Experiencing the Gulf of Morrosquillo and the Islands of San Bernardo

On land

Visit the 2,000 hectares of the Caimanera Swamp to surround yourself with mangroves, herons, and reptiles. Go to La Leche Swamp, to see monkeys, snakes, ocelots, and deer. Summer camps and field trips are a good means of touring the 110 hectares of the Sanguaré Natural Reserve, with its dry tropical forest surrounded by mangroves, lagoons and lakes, seagrasses, reefs, and savannas.
