  • It takes about couple of hours to walk around. Huts to hide and observe the birds. Very close to city. Best to have a field guide with you as many spacies are around. 
  • It is worth to rent binoculars for 50 pesos. Will see many varieties of birds in a book to meters of the Center.

  • Again I gave a tour of this place - maybe fortunately - I think is not very widespread. Very good I saw improvements in reception facilities, and trails. A beautiful experience to be close, without disturbing, of a number of birds in the area. Perhaps the cost for them national seems a little high ($100), but to the see the conditions in that is maintained, is justified.
