“Native American archaeology, conquistadors, gangsters, and developers – with a healthy dose of peacocks for good measure!  Great tour with lots of expert storytelling.  Great for all ages!”  -Irene D.

This National Register of Historic Places location was the site of an ancient Tocobaga Indian village at the time of the first European contact in Florida. Learn about the lives of the Tocobaga on our guided tour of the Jungle Prada site and Anderson/Narvaez mound. Family-owned since the 1940s, the private property features a botanical garden full of native plants used by the Tocobaga, sweeping views of Boca Ciega Bay, and the best-preserved Indian mound in Tampa Bay. Over 50 free-roaming peacocks call the Jungle Prada site home.
