Jeannette Kawas National Park (also known as Punta Sal) accessible only by water is a great opportunity to enjoy an unspoiled beach, snorkeling, hiking, wildlife and a delicious local style lunch
Offering you the very best of both coastal marine and tropical forest ecosystems, Punta Sal is an excursion of diversity. Launching off across the Bay of Tela by ferry, dolphin are often seen en route to one of the most protected parts of Jeanette Kawas National Park.
Traversing the peninsula on foot – through mangrove and tropical forest, you will have the opportunity to see white-faced and howler monkeys. Following a time of snorkeling in the turquoise waters of a coral reef, you will kick back and relax in true Caribbean-style on the beach of Cocalito, enjoying a typical Garifuna lunch.
