Monterrico Mangroves 2-Day Kayak Trip from Antigua, Guatemala

Sea Turtles and Mangroves Trip
An overnight paddling adventure through the undeveloped mangroves of Guatemala’s Pacific coast. The flat lowlands of the Pacific coast boast impressive views of the majestic volcanoes of the western highlands, as well as world-class nature and wildlife. In this paddle we explore the mangrove mazes of the Hawaii-Monterrico Biotopo, renowned for its natural beauty, tranquility and abundance of water fowl and other exotic creatures. We will also tour a turtle reserve where sea turtles are bred for release back to the ocean. If you time it right you can sponsor your own turtle and participate in the “liberacion” or weekly turtle release race. A bit of a paddle back to the mainland ends this all-inclusive tour to Guatemala’s lesser-known and undiscovered Pacific Coast.
