Families can take a tour of the mangrove by boat with Tierralegre or you can take a walk along an interpretive trail and see La Manzanilla’s biggest wildlife attraction…crocodiles! You’ll see lots of birds and other mangrove flora and fauna. At the end of the trail is a small building that sometimes has baby crocodiles for viewing. While the walk is nice the tour is exceptional and we highly recommend it! Tierralegre does a fantastic job educating tour participants on mangrove ecology, binoculars are provided along with bird lists and tours are in English.
The beach in La Manzanilla is perfect for children, during the winter months the water is warm and shallow for several meters and there is virtually no undertow. You can readily buy boogie boards and toys for the beach in La Manzanilla.
