Goto lake is a real sight! Both from the overviewing parking spot as from the road, you'll find flamingos in abundance here. The place is within the interior of the island though, and in the right season (rain season), this place gets infested with mosquitos...More

Lake Goto is large and perfect for flamingos to recuperate. The lake is nice to visit. The roads around the lake are very interesting to drive on. There are a few spots with breathtaking views. It is worth a visit.
