The Deep South Sights

Agua Caliente Wildlife Sanctuary

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Updated 09/03/2013

Fodor's Review

Hot springs, freshwater lagoons, caves, and hiking trails dot the 5,500-acre Agua Caliente Wildlife Sanctuary. The sanctuary is known for its water birds, including ibises, herons, egrets, woodstorks, and kingfishers. A half-mile boardwalk gives access to the visitors center. A local guide is recommended. During the dry season you can hike under the forest canopy and through wetlands to the warm springs at the base of the Agua Caliente hills. During the rainy season, canoes are available for hire.
