There is a wide selection of night time entertainment options, as well as incredible dining experiences with a focus on fresh seafood. The varied landscape is host to beaches, wetlands, mountains and jungles, as well as numerous wildlife species such as the Boto river dolphin, the jaguar, the capybara and the giant anteater.
