La Tovara Jungle Tour - Feb. 20, 2011

Sunday morning, we got up very early to take the La Tovara jungle tour through the mangroves with Tom and Susanne. We caught the first panga out so we would see the animals waking up. What a great trip. It is an 8 mile trip was misty as we left and felt like a jungle. There are over 300 species of birds in the area. We saw crocodiles, iguanas, turtles and tons of birds. We also went to the crocodile breeding center.  The tour took us to a fresh spring pool where we could have swam and snorkeled, but it was too early and we had heard the fences had holes that the crocs could get through. Not sure about that, but we decided not to take the chance.  Here are some of the pictures we took. I'll link an album to this later.
