    Stop: 3 hours -
    Upon arrival, you will get your double kayak and receive a briefing to start the tour. Paddle through these amazing mangroves which are home to different types of bird species that live on the coast. You may even be able to spot some crocodiles basking on the banks of the channels and you might also be able to see flamingos, depending on the season. In the mangroves, the water is calm and relaxing and you can hear the songs from the birds. Your professional guide will provide you with information about the flora and fauna you see to enhance your experience. Your kayaking adventure is divided in two parts of 45 minutes each. After the first half, you will stop to rest and have some water before you continue your way back to the departing point.

Gustavo was a fantastic guide who offered so much detailed local knowledge. It was just 3 of us on his tour and we had the place to ourselves as we left early in the morning. He went at our pace and we saw so much amazing wildlife while also getting a little bit of a workout :)
