Our tour with Aldo was wonderful. He is passionate about the area and provided great information about the ecosystem, animals, plants, and history. The float down the canal was like a lazy river but natural.

Gorgeous reserve full of birds and butterflies and gorgeous clear water. There are boat rides available that take you through the old Mayan trade routes but I didn’t have time. More intimate and away from the hoards of tourists!
