Resident sea almond trees provide a favorite dinner buffet for wild scarlet macaws, red lored parrots, toucans and other tropical birds. You won't have to wait long to see a basilisk (Jesus Christ Lizard) do his famous run across the water's surface, or see a dog sized Iguana darting across a grassy area. In the morning near our pier it is not uncommon to see large troops of white face monkeys picking the trees clean of fruits and howler monkeys dining on leaves or taking an afternoon nap. If you're a plant lover you'll see some of Central America's most amazing tropical flowers, plants and trees right here on our grounds. Come see for yourself, and be sure to bring a camera!
