A tour that you should not miss

In it, you will be able to learn about the species that inhabit the mangrove, both marine and terrestrial fauna. The star of this tour is the crocodile; in order to better appreciate one of them, the tour begins when the sun goes down. After navigating a short stretch, the guides will ask you to keep quiet, and turn off any flashlights, leaving only one on, when you notice some red dots in the distance, you will have found them. The reflection of the single flashlight on, will be seen in the crocodile's eyes, so they will look red, and thus you will know that one of them has been found.
