The Maya Medicine Trail provides insight into the natural remedies prepared by the indigenous people with a variety of local plants. The Sunset Cocktail Cruise is just what it sounds like, a cruise on the New River Lagoon with a personal bartender and plenty of wildlife and a stunning sunset. The Nature Walk is a walk around the reserve observing wildlife. The Spotlight Nature Safari is a nighttime boat ride to observe some of the nocturnal animals including, possibly, the endangered jaguar.
