  • Almost always focus on just go to take a picture at the pier of the MUCUBAJI LAGOON, because this time move forward a little more, in the company of a great guide as Reinol of Andean stopped them, we went to make a beautiful tour from Mucubají lagoon until the lagoon saw ctoria, spectacular scenery, with a unique diversity, avistaminto of plants, birds and a walk that can also be a horse. I recommend to do it, it is not difficult nor is so long... locate these guides in the Maria Laura Posada and sure not is regret.

  • Must-see while in the wilderness. The lagoon is beautiful and this very well-kept. The arrival is super easy, very close to the highway and the entrance is very economic. Very much worth a visit and take good photos.
