A trip to the summit of Turtle Mountain offers a stunning view of the rain forest canopy.
The journey starts with a peaceful and scenic half hour boat ride where you arrive at the base of the nearly 300m tall mountain. Along the way you may see a Harpy Eagle and the Greater Yellow-headed Vulture, King Vulture, Gray-headed, Double-toothed, and Plumbeous Kites and Black-faced Hawk. The trails may reveal Little Chachalaca, Marail Guan, Black Currassow, Squirrel and Black-bellied Cuckoos, Blue-crowned Mot Mot, Colalred Puffbird, Pygmy, Ant wrens and many more!
You may also be rewarded with sightings of monkeys such as Red Howlers, Wedge-capped Capuchins and Black Spiders.
At the foot of Turtle Mountain there is a creek - a refuge for Tapirs, peccaries, agoutis, pacas and other wildlife.
