Mashpi Torrenteer Lagoon

Activity Description

The Mashpi forest transforms at night with its elevated levels of wildlife activity as well as the presence of nocturnal creatures.

This lagoon is just a short distance away and is accessed by walking up along the road from the hotel, where a waterfall and river form a beautiful pond. This is the ideal habitat for various species of frogs – rain frogs, glass frogs, and tree frogs – as well as other fascinating species that we might be lucky enough to encounter. At this lagoon, our scientific investigation team was able to discover an entirely new species of frog: the Mashpi Torrenteer. Its Latin name is Hyloscirtus mashpi, which means “Guardian of the River.”
