Welcome to Isla Aguada
Isla Aguada is a large fishing town, although not quite an island as its name implies. It's known for its pretty, red-and-white striped lighthouse, which is over 100 years old. Boat tours on the estuary are the thing to do here. The standard excursion stops at three islands, including Isla de Pájaros, where thousands of herons, gulls and magnificent frigate birds converge at sunset. You're almost guaranteed to see dolphins along the way, and most trips end with a cruise through the mangroves for more wildlife-spotting. Morning and dusk are the best times to take these trips.
