Activities include excellent bird watching (over 275 species identified in the area), swimming under the waterfalls, hiking on trails up the river valleys into the thick of the jungle, whitewater rafting, canopy rides, world class diving and snorkeling off the Bay Islands and the dozen nearby keys and islands, and much more.
