  • This lagoon is commercially exploited to many tourists at the same time for the beauty of the lagoon to see for photographers you would need to go at 6 am in the morning but that's no longer they may not more so early on the water for the protection of nature true or not who knows but is advisable to go we went with a private boat it is more expensive but you are not bound to the time and you can sail in and out 2 or 3 times then I paid 8000 peso for a whole day with different stops
