Ecotourism Activities

The Park is perfect for ecotourism due to its amazing beauty, diversity of terrestrial and marine ecosystems, the kindness of the locals and the variety of activities that can be done. There are local guides that offer services to the different attractions and they rent the necessary equipment.

Hiking and Aquatic Circuits

Crab Cay Trail is a mere 100 meters in length and easy to walk, where you can bathe in calm transparent waters. Iron Wood Hill Trail is ideal for observing the landscape of the dry forest, the mangrove forest and the terrestrial fauna and only 3,000 meters in length, medium difficulty. You can also kayak through the reef lagoon on the way to Crab Cay, bordering the mangrove forest and entering Oyster Creek to get a different perspective of the mangrove forest. This lagoon is also home to a prairie of seagrass peppered with small patches of coral.
