It is El Salvador´s largest and most important wetland and the largest mangrove estuarine systeme un Northern Mesoamerica, it contains mangrove forest, estuaries, sand barsm beaches, 27 islands of varying size, fresh water lagoons and seasonally flooded forest.

Its 637 square kilometers, represent a transit point to at least 87 species of migratory birds. The coastal mangroves and estuaries help reduce the vulnerability of coastal communities and agricultural lands to natural disasters such as floods; helps stabilize the local climate, and serves as a nursery and refuge for high diversity if ecological species.

During our tour, you will walk through a forest until we reach a spider monkey community.  After calling their names, the monkeys come down the trees and interact with the visitors. After lunch we will have the option to add some type of activities like: kayaking,  boat tour or just enjoy the facilities.
