Visit Indio Maiz Biological Reserve
A short boat ride from El Castillo along a jungle-cloaked river leads to the wildlife haven of Indio Maiz Biological Reserve. Astonishingly, this small area boasts more species of trees, birds and insects than are found in the whole continent of Europe.
The biosphere’s rich ecosystems support jaguars, tapirs, manatees, harpy eagles, crocodiles and many other creatures, including colourful poison dart frogs. Following a 2km rainforest trail, you’ll have the chance to observe a large variety of birds under the watchful eyes of tree lizards and playful spider monkeys.
