Outdoor Activities

Five minutes from downtown San Jose is a peaceful area filled with 200 species of exotic birds such as egrets, herons and brown pelicans. Rent a kayak to experience this estuary, home to many native and migratory birds. Sunrise and sunset are the most scenic times to visit; however, if your focus is on bird identification, you may want to visit during the more daylight-filled hours. There is a cultural center to answer questions. Admission is free.

Location:  Paseo San Jose, (East of Presidente Forum Resort)
