Guests of The Aguada Hotel & Restaurant, Belize often ask: “What’s in the pond?” “Do you have fish or turtles?”
We decided to get those questions answered more clearly. Local nature tour guide, Tony Santiago, assisted The Aguada Staff in identifying the various creatures in the pond. After spending a few hours in his canoe and a catch and release session, Tony shared with us that the depth of the pond is around 14 feet. The pond also has a live spring. He found many Bay Snook and Talapia along with various types of toads and frogs. To our surprise, he showed us one of the many turtles that have found his home at The Aguada. We named him Big Papa!
