Kayak winding canals, stroll gorgeous beaches or just relax in hammocks as gentle ocean breezes kiss your sun-warmed skin. In the evenings, unwind in serene accommodations that offer all the comforts of home.
Experience an early morning, guided canal tour and listen to the thrilling sounds of jungle animals coming to life.
