A hurricane had pretty much flattened a lot of this estuary when I was there in March of 2018. It happened to be right beside our hotel so gave it a go. Didn't see any birds other than the usual one we saw on the...More
I don't want to be critical of something in nature that cannot be helped. The estuary was a bit dried up when I was there. We did see what appeared to be wild horses and deer and some wading birds. I think it was just...More
After the hurricane and other storms in May, the estuary took a beating. We were there in June and saw an awful lot of debris, dead fish and garbage that washed up around it. We still enjoyed the walks and saw a few egrets, sea...More
I've been coming to San Jose for 20 years. Every time I have a long, peaceful walk along the estuary to the ocean. There are loads of birds and turtles and lizards, and it looks prehistoric, somehow. Once I saw a whole herd of cows...More
We have been coming here for many years and sadly the estuary is suffering the affects of too many tourists! Too much trash lying about, no garbage cans, in general too little care! It amazes me that the birds still live here, we used to...More

As you pass the shops on your left of the little strip mall, all the big hotels are on your right. Cabo Azul, the Mayan is the last one you pass before the roundabout. Go straight, no turns at the roundabout. The road does end at the last hotel there, I believe is a Holiday Inn. You can park there, the path runs up along side of the hotel and around into the Santuary. The last time I was there, the water was too high and covered the paths. It's a lovely walk early morning.
