Excellent place to spend around 2 hours and take photos. I am sure sunset would be especially beautiful. Look for the blue-and-yellow macaws and the tucans!

We twice visited the Macau Lagoon as the sun was setting. This was a surreal experience as flocks of birds gather to rest for the night. As others have said, it's just beautiful. I think I uploaded one of my photos.

The perfect ending of the day in Bom Jardim (Nobres) after visiting Reine encantado, serra azul, rio triste... From 5 pm all the birds are "fighting" for a place in a three. Bring a binocular or a camera with alot of zoom.

Visiting this spot is a must. Stay a night or two in Bom Jardim and you will be happy and relaxed! You can visit the macaws at sunset and sun rise. Nice Eco tourism!
