This unforgettable encounter with nature is your chance to learn about the local ecology of Oaxaca and the important work being done here to protect it. The local community has implemented a conservation strategy to protect its wildlife – especially the Mexican crocodile.
You will travel approximately 85 minutes through Oaxaca's beautiful landscapes to Ventanilla, an indigenous community of Zapotec origin and home to the Ventanilla Lagoon and crocodile sanctuary.
Once there, take a boat ride through the mangrove lagoon where you'll be able to easily observe several animal species in their natural habitat.
Back on land, set off on an approximately 1-hour walking exploration while your guide points out the wildlife and vegetation that populate the island.
Enjoy a light lunch of fresh quesadillas made in an open-air oven while your guide offers an explanation of the natural world that surrounds you.
After your exploration of the island, walk approximately 30-minutes back to the boat to travel back to the mainland and return to Huatulco and the pier.
Please note: Wear comfortable shoes and light clothing; bring biodegradable sunscreen, sunglasses, hat and insect repellent. Minimum age is 8 years. Extensive walking in soft sand is required.
