La exuberancia del Rio Don Diego
Jul 2019
Para mi fue una experiencia emocionante. El río es muy tranquilo y en la rivera se observa mucha vegetación, en los árboles micos y a lo lejos las imponentes montañas de la Sierra.
Cuando llegue a la playa donde se encuentran el rió y el mar, me encanto ver que no existe ningún restaurante ni vendedor de nada. Solo un pequeño toldo donde vende bebidas. Es un lugar, aún muy silvestre. Ojalá así lo puedan mantener, sus habitantes y turistas que allí vayan. Casí que temo recomendarlo, porque puede significar un alto costo para la naturaleza que allí se conserva.
