Fodor's Review

It's essential to hire a guide if you want to visit Refugio de Vida Silvestre Punta Izopo, a wildlife refuge east of Tela that's irrigated by the Plátano and Hicaque rivers. It's easy to get lost in this labyrinth where even locals don't go alone. The best way to see the refuge is by kayak, letting you navigate the maze of mangroves along the Río Plátano without disturbing the wildlife. You can spot howler monkeys, crocodiles, and iguanas, as well as toucans and parrots that come around late in the afternoon. Garífuna Tours organizes late-night crocodile watches here.
