Day 5: Cueroy Salado & Garifuna Village (B,L) (SIB Tour)

Guests transfer from their hotel to this wildlife refuge situated 33km from La Ceiba which is home to many endangered animal species, found within the many mangrove canals proceeding from the rivers Cuero and Salado. There is a mixture both fresh and salt water, the reserve being right at the ocean's edge. From La Union, we catch a ride on the old railway to reach this wildlife refuge, and then by boat or canoe we explore the mangrove lagoons. Manatees, monkeys, alligators and a variety of birds are all part of the highlights of this protected and diverse habitat run by the foundation FUCSA. Most frequently seen wildlife: Howler monkeys, more than 200 species birds (Herons, kingfishers, gallinules) and butterflies, manatee, alligators.
