Lagoon is so close to all the lodging. I walked there twice to see birds are different times of the day. The Flamingos are beautiful. Keep walking to the back and you hit the entrance to the turtle reserve.

Some of the best Flamingos I've ever seen. Probably about 25 of them. Long walk but worth it. Great trail and the National Center at the end is really worth seeing.

This lake was pretty boring, but very close to the way to the tortoise breeding ground which was much better, with tons of flamingos

The most beautiful birds seen in their habitat. They are endangered and well protected by the state, but sadly in the decline.
