The wildlife refuge is situated 33 km from La Ceiba, which is home to many endangered animal species, found within the many mangrove canals proceeding from the rivers Cuero and Salado. There is a mixture of fresh and salt water here as the reserve is right at the edge of the ocean.
From La Union, you take a ride on the old railway to reach the refuge and then by boat or canoe you will explore the mangrove lagoons. Manatees, monkeys, alligators and a variety of birds are all part of the highlights of this protected and diverse habitat.
