Starfish on the beach

Day 1` Bird Island and Starfish Beach

  • 1 Lunch
Set out from Bocas town today by boat as you head to Bird Island, also known as Swan's Cay. This designated bird sanctuary contains rock formations and lush vegetation, including a cluster of coconut palms. Here you will get a chance to see the elusive Red-billed Tropic bird, the brown booby, the brown pelican, the frigate bird and a variety of gulls and terns.

Next head to Starfish Beach, famous for its abundance of starfish. The calm and crystal clear waters make this a perfect beach for starfish to rest. As you walk along the beach you will likely see hundreds of these beautiful and unique creatures in brightly colored orange, yellow, brown and red. Enjoy lunch on the beach before heading back to your hotel for the afternoon.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
