After an exhilarating trip from the ship along the mangroves to the mouth of the Monkey River in local pangas, we then cruised gently upstream looking for wildlife. Along the way local guides showed us the amazing birdlife and shared information about many of the traditional uses for plants. The afternoon was spent at leisure exploring the quaint little village of Placencia.
