Las Baulas National Marine Park has an extension of over 1,000 acres and two mangrove estuaries, Estero de San Francisco and Estero de Tamarindo having been declared as a Ramsar site, signifying it as a wetland of international importance.
A great way to immerse yourself in the mangrove swamp is to explore on kayak or canoe and glide through the waterways. We offer a Boat Safari Tour that will take you into the narrow canals and mangrove forests with the expertise to understand the spectacular flora and fauna inside.
Just within the mangrove forests, there are five different types of mangroves and the guides have the knowledge of the rich ecosystem to help you understand how it all interacts. The tours often stop to allow you to walk into the park giving you a chance to see more of the oasis within.
With countless water birds, pelicans, white ibis, and cattle egrets, you will find yourself birdwatching even if you aren’t an avid watcher as it is an important site for migratory birds. You may even have the chance to see the endangered roseate spoonbill or hear the yellow fronted parrots when exploring the park.
Crocodiles can also be spotted within the mangrove swamps or listen for the distinct deep howls of the howler monkeys as they keep an eye on you from above. Raccoons, squirrels, coatis, porcupines, armadillos, opossums, and iguanas all call this park home.
Las Baulas National Park consists of four beaches, Playa Langosta, Playa Ventanas, Playa Carbon, and Playa Grande. Playa Langosta is a beautiful white sand beach to relax in the soft sand and enjoy a day with your family. When the water levels are right the tidepools fill up and you can have your own private swimming pool to sit back and relax under the sun in.
