  • The lagoon opens at 8am, and I would recommend going there early so you can see the flamingos and other wildlife. One of our favourite days and we combined with a visit to El Nicho. Would recommend!  more »

  • The lagoon is a hervorragen-terminated destination. A paradise for birds, especially flamingos, but also Pelicans and herons Komorane. With a little luck you can see also hummingbirds. It is worth to be early (from 8 h 00), since the tours take place only about every hour and also just so many at once left in the Park, how to find later on the boot space there. After a very interesting short walk through a forest, we arrive at the Lagun. There are rowing boats are rowed by employees of the Park. Each 2 or 3 visitors climb into a boat and be out rowed then on the Lake, from where you can watch the birds very well. On the way back sibd we then to the mangrove forests into water, where we could see more crabs and other animals. We have explained much of our friendly guides and see. Admission 10 CUC is worthwhile in any case.
