Thousands of caiman can be easily observed in the dry season along with a concentrations of up to 15,000 cormorants and herons are seen fishing in the lakes. In the trees, numerous groups of monkeys share the branches with sloths and with beautiful bromeliads and orchids. River dolphins, legendary creatures in the flooded forest, enchant all who see them.
