One of the many stream crossings along Sendero Sirenia. This 2km research trail was created by myself and two others for the purpose of connecting the Vencejo waterfall to another trail at Rara Avis. The trail has not yet been thoroughly explored, but initial surveys have turned up some very interesting species.
This trail received its name due to its abundance of Arboreal Manatees (Trichechus dendrobates); it holds perhaps the highest concentration in all of Central America.
