Excursion to "Bolaños Island"

Bolaños Island is a small island of 25 hectares consisting of a rocky mountain of 81 meters. The sparse vegetation consists of shrubs difficult to penetrate and preventing so the growth of other species.  The forest loses its leaves completely during the summer. The vegetation consists mainly of medium paira and other trees such as balsa and fraginipani . Bolaños Island is especially important for the conservation of marine birds . This site is one of the few places where there are colonies of brown pelicans and is the only known breeding site north of Costa Rica for magnificent frigate birds . In the eastern part of the island is a small white sand beach with shells and crustaceans occasional scattered on the floor.

  • We leave the hotel at 7:00 am on a fishing boat bound for Isla Bolaños. The journey takes about 1 ½ hour. In periods of massive arrival of Olive Ridley turtles between July and January, is almost certain to see early in the morning when passing boat on Playa la Flor, adult turtles mating or feeding in the water. Our guide and boat captain inform them if you notice one or more turtles in the water. If we are lucky we can observe dolphins swimming next to the boat.
  • Once in the island you climb to get to the bird nesting area. For this reason we recommend sport shoes or boots. At the top of the mountain will see the nesting birds such as pelicans, tijeretas and gaviotas. We advise not to touch the baby birds because it disturbs the mother-son relationship.
  • The whole journey lasts an average of 4-5 hours. The use of boots or sneakers and sunscreen and hat are recommended. Purified water is provided by the hotel.
