Madrigal River Hike

Walk on a trail lined by secondary forest that runs parallel to the beach for two kms. to the mouth of the Madrigal River. Several small creeks offer opportunities to observe birds and mammals. It is not unusual to spot White-faced Monkeys, Tamandua and Red-capped Manakins along the way. Upon arrival at the mouth of the Madrigal River, you will hike upstream on the riverbank. The terrain makes for slow going and tricky footing but among the Crysophila palms and woody vines you may discover wildlife. There will be time for a swim in a fresh water swimming hole, then backtrack downstream to end up on the beach.
