The dense rainforest and coastal wetlands of the Gandoca Manzanillo Reserve cover a vast area, with enormous moss and orchid-covered trees playing host to complex ecosystems. Bird lovers will enjoy looking out for some of the 384 species recorded here, which include toucans, woodpeckers, parakeets, owls and several varieties of tanager and hummingbird. Amphibians and mammals abound, with sloths and monkeys to be glimpsed in the trees, and colourful iguanas, lizards and tree frogs and poison dart frogs to be found in the lush undergrowth. The jungle trails here are undoubtedly challenging in places, but if you have a love of nature you should find this a rewarding tour.
