  • Is a protected area managed by the District of Lima. You can go by taxi or uber that they leave you at the entrance. The walk itself, a lot of people don't like a swamp in General does not call much attention, even having lookouts. The ride is cool when you come by boat and see several species of birds up close and mainly going for the part of the beach. The beach is next to a condo so I don't have any structure in it then you have to bring water and snacks but worth a lot's worth going early to watch thousands of birds in the sands of the beach. Nor in the pantanal seen so many bird together at once. If you are a bird watcher, send an email to the Board asking to enter sooner (since only officially opens at 8). Then you follow straight to the beach first where early get more birds and then do the boat tour. You can walk into the sea but he is a little dangerous.

  • It's not a tour. You for a fee to walk in a faraway place that looks like a place to spawn. If you are a biologist, seemed a full plate. But as a tourist xereto like me, it's no big deal.

  • A while ago I went there with my psychologist, was sudden. My psychologist wanted to take me to a place where I can feel more tranquillo. I wanted to talk to me in place out of the ordinary. But the truth is that it has a pretty sight that is worth visiting, the only downside is when don't have private transport since the micros do not go through there and not taxis.
