JUAN VENADO ISLAND TOUR The Juan Venado Island, or Isla Juan Venado as it is called in Spanish, is located just off the coast in front of the town Las Peñitas. The island south end is in front of Salinas Grandes town and beach. The island lies very close to the coast, and is practically nothing more than a thin, long trip of sand. The nature, however, is spectacular. Between the island and the coast grows a mangrove forest, which houses tons of birds. Furthermore, crocodiles live in the water as well as lots of crabs and other crustaceans. It’s great to take a boat or kayak and cruise through the forest. There are small, curvy waterways you can browse through, with egrets and other birds around every corner.
