Kayaking to the Istian River (A Swamp)

Spanish French German

It is easy to kayak to the Rio Istian (a swamp). Just hop in a kayak with a buddy, paddle one-two hours (depending on your arm strength and wind) toward the isthmus of the island, maintaining a relatively close distance to the shoreline, and you will find yourself amongst a variety of large water birds, bats, and potentially the family of howler monkeys that live there. The swamp is not large but there are a few different canals to travel down and often times you can see more wildlife if you just float and are patient. Pack a lunch, water, sunglasses, insect repellent, and sunglasses.
