Leaving the ship for this wonderful half-day eco-tour, you will board a bus for the brief drive through fantastic countryside to a local marina. Here, you will board a boat for a thrilling cruise through the mangroves, where your expert guide will point out the many species of waterfowl and other animals that live in this unique ecosystem.

Watch for crocodiles, some up to ten feet long, who love to rest on the riverbank.

Upon reaching land, take a short but pleasant transfer through the pretty sugarcane fields as you make your way to a breathtaking bird sanctuary. Here, you will discover that the scarlet macaw, one of the most endangered species in the tropics, has found a safe place to live and breed. View this brightly colored bird at close quarters in this wonderful sanctuary where they are allowed to fly freely.

Wander through the gardens, which are as peaceful as they are picturesque, and discover the many other breeds of birds that live here.

Enjoy a fruit snack before the scenic drive back to the ship.
