Heredia

This consists of three lacustrine depressions, which include Maquenque Lagoon, and of low hillocks with mainly primary forest made up of species like wild almond tree (Dipteryx panamensis), whose fruits are eaten by animals, especially the green macaw (Ara ambigua) and the endangered turkey’s tail (Hymenolobium mesoamericanum). Two of the very threatened mammals that live in this wetland are the ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) and the West Indian manatee (Trichechus manatus). The best way to visit this protected area is to take a boat along the Cureña Channel, which flows into the San Juan river.
