Laguna Grande, Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve

4.9
#23 of 125 in Nature in Ecuador
At the heart of a wildlife reserve lies Laguna Grande, a tranquil lagoon known for its multicolored sunsets and pristine swimming spots. The water level in the lagoon fluctuates greatly during the seasons, at times so much so that the lake dries up and sprouts grasses and trees. In wet season, rare pink dolphins and and fish call the lake home. Move swiftly across the lake's mirrored surface in a canoe, and spot the wildlife on land and the many bird species above.
