  • It is a short walk from 400 mt which takes 45 minutes, the entrance to the Park costs $2000 per person. In the afternoon there are fewer tourists. Much noise should not get so not to disturb the flamingos and other birds.

  • Should be better when you have a lot of flamingos. At the time I went I was a little disappointed because there were very few, we drove almost 1 hour to get in and out of the place and see quite a few flamingos ...

  • You don't have to do 3 hours drive.. .but if you are not too far, why not. But not what get excited about so far: the Flemish are "light pink" and have volunteered to be pale (there are 5 or 6 tops early March). Amateur photographers may enjoy "mirror effect" (see attached photo.
