Our neighbours, they belong to this Majestic land, they were here before us and are pretty much afraid of us and would prefer not to see us. If you see them please do not kill them, honour their presence. Usually though they are so timid that they will be running away as soon as they see us.
I love fruits and I may like to take a bite of your pineapples if you do not keep it in the kitchen.
I start work early in the mornings and I like to make holes in palm trees. Sorry if I wake you up!
We are many and we love to catch mosquitos. You will find us every where and we have many colors.
I like to come out in the afternoon and I am very curious about you but if you see me I will jump as far as I can and as quickly as I can.
I like eating the cats food, and you might see me passing by the afternoon or at night. I am not a rat however, I am much nicer and cleaner.
I look like a hen but not. I am a chachalaca and you will only hear me in the mornings, I talk when the first rays of sun arise, then I disappear.
I look scary but I am super nice, I love to be around the palms and trees, my color camouflages me very nicely so that no one sees me normally, but I am always there and I never will bite a human, it is not my thing.
I like to get warm on the roofs or in the trees. I love sun and papaya but if there are cats around I will not take a chance to stay and fight. When you see me running after my partner iguana then I’m oblivious and don’t care to pass by you, she is more important.
I normally only have one pincher and I am very shy, I love to hide in my hole in the mangrove and I walk very slow and carefully, when crossing the road we get killed by the cars because we get attracted by the lights so please consider us and slow down your speed when driving, because we need to get to the beach to leave our babies. Watch out for us especially when its full moon and after sunset.
There are many more of us animals around here, some as impressive as the Jaguars but we have all have been moving further inland and away of humans because they dont know how to share this beautiful life. Also we have our teams of protectors like various annoying insects, they may like to say hi and remind you that this is our home. If you do not love us then maybe a mosquito or tabano will give you a little bite! .Obviously if you are using a perfume like citronella or lemongrass they will not like to be near you at all!
Ah, and the scorpions. They are more afraid than any other animal and in some cases they sting themselves in order to avoid being killed by someone else. Luckily, in this region we dont have high venom at all, we only look like bad ones but dont be afraid, we are just wanting to stay hidden.
We would appreciate if you could keep your footprint a small as possible during your holiday with us and we will try our best not to disturb you. Please try to use biodegradable products and avoid leaving any rubbish behind.
