Been here many times. The visitors center would be more interesting with multiple languages displays. It is only in Spanish. The lake edge is fenced off and most of the birds are too far out to see without a telescope. In the early Spring the...More

This is a must visit place for birdwatchers at any time of the year and I was surprised just how busy it was even in winter. The visitor centre is well worth a look round (see my pic for opening times etc) and also has...More

The Lake is host to an excellent colony of flamingoes and white headed ducks. The lake is extensive and there are excellent walking trails and a great interpretation centre with stunning views BUT Flamingoes are migratory so timing is important. They have very specific seasons...More

This is a great place to visit, even for non-birdwatchers - there are thousands of punk flamingos in season and countless other water birds, in the enormous main lagoon and in the wetlands round the visitors centre. Most of the flamingoes are standing in the...More

We were there late in the year, the lake was very dry, but we still got to see some flamingos. Well worth the trip!

We visited the place on Aug. 6, 2017. It was VERY hot - about 42 degrees centigrade. The attendant advised us to 'go behind the building to see flamingos'. We followed her advice and were able to see flamingos from the top of the hill....More
