Sierpe offers a great opportunity to see two habitats intertwining: Mangrove and Riparian forest. This combination creates the perfect condition for many kinds of creatures that utilize the area as a breeding, feeding, roosting and sheltering site. The Terraba-Sierpe Wetland protects nearly 25,000 hectares, making it the second largest in Central America. It is also a Ramsar Site; protected since 1994 and recognized as a wetland of international importance in 1995 by Ramsar convention. Costa Rica is the Central American country with the most Ramsar sites, 12 in total.
This is the most sought after tour in Sierpe, since you will be on a comfortable boat for 3 hours observing, photographing and learning about some of the most beautiful animals we have in Costa Rica. During our river tour we will point out monkeys, birds, reptiles and much more. The tour can be taken at any time, but keep in mind that is much better early in the morning and afternoon.
