Pontoon on the Vaca Lake

This tour takes place on a pontoon boat called La Capitana, on a man-made reservoir of the Macal River. Macal River makes its way through the Cayo District, which has large swaths of wild jungle.

You’ll meet with the boat’s captain, Lazaro Martinez, and hike through the jungle to the pontoon. On the hike and on the boat ride you’ll have the chance to see wildlife like tapirs, spider monkeys, ocelots, and exotic birds. The boat ride is an easygoing lap around the reservoir. La Capitana stops at a dock where you can get out to take a short hike and visit a waterfall for a picturesque swim.
