the national park is accessed by boat and passengers remain in the boats during their tour of the park. the best time to see animals is early morning and late afternoon.
one really needs a skilled guide and driver to spot the many animals who hide well and would be missed by amateur eyes.

We had a fabulous early morning visit to the park.
Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
We would have revisited if there had been time to see the waterways at a different time of day.
A must if we visit again.

No turtles for us, but monkeys, iguanas, sloth etc. made it worthwile. Best way to visit is by boat.

What a fantastic place! It was like travelling back in time, the only indication of human hqbitation was the boat we were in. We saw so many different species of birds, monkeys, reptiles, mammals and amphibians; it will take weeks to process our photogrqphs. If you have the opportunity just go, you won't regret it.

Family of 5 we made 2 boat safaris (one day and one night) and one very hot and sticky jungle walk in the company of our guide Juan.
Around every minute something some new critter would pop up, roosting bats to basilisk lizards, red leg frogs to Rainbow Toucans - for those with any interest in wildlife this is a truly amazing place.
