Wander over here if you're looking for some of the bird life. The estuary was teeming with wildlife and this is an excellent place for birdwatchers.

Lovely bird sanctuary within walking distance of hotel zone. Really pretty place nice contrast from the beach. We saw birds and gecos and there is a look out to look over the sanctuary and estuary.

the bird sanctuary is a large park on the coastal edge of the city, we walked there twice but didnt see any exotic bird species at all. it may be because it was so hot, but it was disappointing. I like the idea of what they are trying to do, just dont know if there are really any birds there... More

This Sanctuary was just down the road from our lodging and we were glad we visited. I imagine it is very busy depending on the season...enjoyable.

We went to the sanctuary because we were staying at the Holiday Inn right next to it ( A GREAT RESORT). We had hoped for more access to the grounds but because of the hurricane the trail was very small. We loved what we saw and the fact it was FREE.

We stumbled across this newly upgraded nature reserve. We saw many species of local birds. It was peaceful, though the trail was somewhat akin to an Indiana Jones adventure. We were pleasantly surprised, though. We hope to visit again. It was worth it!

Walking the Estuary Trail was a highlight of our trip. We are nature lovers and prefer this to the city and bar scene. Actually got a close up of an iguana on the trail! We found the trail very well maintained and an easy walk.............if was very hot on the day we went, and there is little shade, so be... More

Estuary has some damage to areas from storms; however, very enjoyable. We were able to enjoy a large variety of butterflies, birds and fish on our stroll. We identified a uncommon Willet, egrets, cormorants, heron- many water fowl! The walk was scenic, quiet and clean

lots of birds, among which two endemic species live in this wild oasis in the middle of the town. Perfect site to go for a walk at sunset. You can also rent horses and ride along the estuary mouth.
