Without a doubt a whole show a delicacy to be in this place enjoying all those things that nature gives us but it is unfortunate how the patronage responsible for that place over the years increases the rates and improvements in the place arrive. The jetty with dozens of broken or incomplete boats giving a bad image to the place, garbage between the mangroves and zero novelty in the infrastructure I still remember the first time I allowed myself to be in this place the infrastructure totally the same.

The messengers take us in a 20 minute drive to the family colonies. The boat driver keeps a respectful distance from the animals so as not to worry them. Now you can take photos and observations of the thousands of flamingos. a very impressed experience to see such a mass of animals in the Wild.
