In the afternoon get ready for an unforgettable ride into the jungle, following Tuba Creek.! This path winds it way through the jungle, following the small river. Cayman’s are hidden in the shallow waters, storks perch on floating logs, howler monkeys swing from tree to tree. The gentle throb and hum of the jungle mingles with the howl of a monkey and the chattering of parrots. The jungle is close as the horses pick their way through the dense shrubs and lower branches. Giant ancient trees tower over us ,as we pass by the gigantic roots. It is another world, yet borders so close to the everyday life of us humans. It is not a zoo nor a theme park, but the real authentic jungle, around us, surrounding us, and we are in its midsts.
