This stretch of the Santo Antonio River spreads across the land to create the Marimbus Wetland. This is a large fresh water swamp extending about 30km covered by semi-aquatic plants and home to an ever-decreasing population of terrapins, alligators, anacondas and many other amphibians, unfortunately very difficult to see, as well as a large number of fish and many species of birds.
