An activity that has enjoyed increasing popularity at La Macarena is fishing in the rapids upstream on the Guayabero River. In the area known as El Cajón, which is located one hour by motorboat south of the municipality, travelers can see an abundance of birds and capture distinct species of fish, including the gilded catfish, which visitors must throw back in the water after catching them.
