  • This site is magical, the journey that takes place in boat allows us to be very close to flamingos. The landscape is wonderful, and although the guides that exist in the area are scarce, there are real good. It is a place to be quiet and enjoy the nature. You can access this place before coming to Riohacha.

  • Great place to spot some flamingos. The best time to go is from end of November to January. Also there are nice beautiful beaches without a lot of tourists or people.
  • Wonderful and magic place
  • beautiful view, lovely animals
  • One of the best sites I have visited in Colombia, the sighting of flamingos is magical and the beach is very quiet. While the experience is a little dirty I love, the kindness of the people who live there or work as guides surpasses all expectations that I give 5 stars
