Hiking & Waterfalls @ Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve
This is the world's first Jaguar Preserve offering great hiking opportunities. Here the jungle is dense and both flora and fauna is abundant.
You will see birds and butterflies and maybe also some mammals like peccaries, deers, agoutis, gibnuts, anteaters, kinkajous, tapirs and if you are lucky, a jaguar!
In Cockscomb there is more than half a dozen hiking trails of different steepness and difficulty. Bring your swimwear as there are several waterfalls and natural pools on the trails. Another option is to rent an inner tube and in a lazy manner float down the river for an hour. And last but not least don't forget to check out the plane crash!
