What we will do
- We travel in an air-conditioned coach to Bacab Eco Park, where instructors will provide us with life jackets and all the necessary safety information. We jump into our two seater kayaks and we are off on our adventure.
- We go through a narrow shady stream, flanked by semi-submerged trees, plants and water lilies. The stream widens into the calm crystal clear waters of a small lagoon where we can observe several tropical fish swimming about in the shallow water. With a bit of luck, we could even spot tortoises and young crocodiles basking in the sun. We leave the lagoon and negotiate the second stream where the forest is taller and full of boat-billed herons (of the Pelecaniformes order), green parrots, coatis (also known as miniature American bears) and howler monkeys.
- After our kayaking adventure we return to Bacab Eco Park, where have time for a light buffet lunch and time to relax in the swimming pools of the establishment where we can even lie down comfortably on a lounger or a hammock.
