We took the mangrove tour with the red shirt ‘company’. It’s in a rowboat and at very slow pace so you can really enjoy the beautiful nature. We saw a lot of crocodiles and iguanas and many different birds. Highly recommended.

Cool boat tour guided by someone that tells you about mangrove ecosystems while you admire crocodiles and various lifeforms. Paid 50p. Make sure you go with the red shirt people. They are much more conscious for the environment as they are working hard restoring the mangrove following a hurricane in 2012. The white shirt company brings you onto an island where you see "wild" animals that cannot leave the place and some of which do not exist in Oaxaca, like a monkey.

Nice attraction. The mangrove is still very destroyed though.

Largato Real , une belle petite communauté qui est proche de la nature dans le respect !

C'est très agréable de profiter d'un tour en lancha dans la mangrove, observer les animaux (multitudes d'oiseaux, tortues d'eau douce, iguanes verts, crocodiles..) dans leurs habitats naturels avec les informations très complètes du guide qui vous emmènera.

Ils sont très professionnels et accueillants, ils préservent la nature en étant conscients de son importance.
Ils ont pour projet de replanter de la mangrove qui a malheureusement subit de gros dommages suite à un gros ouragan en 2012.

Passer les voir et prenez un tour pour les soutenir dans une si belle démarche, ce n'est pas cher et vous passerez un excellent moment !

Nous recommandons vivement cette communauté responsable!!
80 pesos par personne , à ne pas manquer !! (zone de camping)

You have to go to the end for the 80pesos/pers mangrove tour. Very nice people. The parking wasn't free, although it's a public parking. 80pesos/pers for the night. Could have bargained but wanted tout give something to the community.

Nice little eco-tour run by a village cooperative. Saw lots of crocs and iguanas on the small island, as well as lots of bird.

We stopped at first place (there appears to be another at the end of the road) and altho we didn't stay they will happily let you camp there (presumably for free).
