After that, our driver/guide will take you to the second activity.?The river cruise?is a tour for the whole family (regardless of age). Your guide will do the rowing and spot the?plentiful wildlife along the ride. You can?expect to see lots of waterbirds such as herons, egrets, ibis, roseate spoonbills, storks, kingfishers, and maybe even owls, toucans, and parrots. Howler monkeys, white-faced capuchins, iguanas, bats, and crocodiles are all commonly spotted.
