  • This 180 hectare bird sanctuary by the pacific in the south of Lima is visited by around 150 species throughout the year. It has lagoons and read beds which the visitor can walk around or take a guide...  more »
  • 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.
