  • Flamingos: you always see but occasionally is crammed, from November to may, in the remaining period seen less, however you may notice the different colours if Captain small and large, gray and pink respectively. Tropical mosquito strongly recommended, you are in a swamp with the mangroves!

  • The place is beautiful and interesting. The hike is really very short, they are not more than 10 minutes to reach the Lake, and they told us it was a journey of approximately 3 hours but not so. The lagoon is pretty, there are good views and is spectacular to see the flamingos.

  • Remember water and insect repellent! Super cool experience to see flamingos in their natural surroundings. However, it can be recommended to be there when they open, so you don't have to wait for all too many hours in queue and boiling in the heat. There are only a certain number of boats with room for 2-3 people, so you come up the day in tourist season, you run the risk of having to wait for a long time.
