  • One of the best out in nature activities in Cienfuegos. I definitely would recommend doing the boat ride to get closer to the flamingos. Amazing experience for all ages.  more »

  • We went a morning tour to see the flamingo, the tour finished in 2 hours. We walked along the park and went on the lake to see the flamingos. We took the taxi there (arranged by the tour company) and the cost including the ticket was around 10CUC per person. The man who rowed the boat for us was super nice and tried to bring us as close as possible (but still a bit too far to watch without the binoculars) The short tour is actually an interesting experience. Don't expect you will stay close with the flamingos but you can also watch some more different birds and lizards during the tour.
  • Great opportunity to see flamingos in natural environment
  • In Cienfuegos, where there is not that much to do, this is a ok excursion. 10 CUC entry best bought in one of the city's travel agencies in advance plus a taxi ride there and back if 20 CUC. the tour is very brief (15 mins tops) but guide was affable and knowledgeable. Row boats on lake to see flamingos follows. 30 mins, with park tower and you don't get close. Still, with nice weather, it gets you out to a quiet nature spot for a while.
  • Very distant flamingos that you could see. Little fauna unfortunately, maybe the period!!!!
