Take a popular canal tour and let your guide lead the way, helping you catch glimpses of the animal and plant life populating this tropical lowland rainforest. Crocodiles, river turtles, sloths and many species of monkey are just some of the inhabitants you will have the chance to meet. Tours are offered on motor boats or, to get up close, canoes.
