We are in the jungle and wild animals are a part of that. However most, if not all of the animals you are likely to see are not dangerous as they prefer to eat insects, lizards, frogs and fruit. You will see and hear a wide variety of birds in the jungle canopy overhead and on the ground. Although there are pumas and jaguars in the nearby mountains, the largest animal you are likely to see is the coatimundi (a.k.a. tejon). In the early summer the land crabs are on the move. This is their time of migration and reproduction and is an important part of the jungle ecological system. Their march en masse towards the beach is a spectacle of nature you won’t soon forget.
