We knew that the flamingos would not be here but having been to Lake Bogora we were interested to see another stop on the flamingos flight. It was such a beautiful peaceful place and it was lovely to see rabbits chase each other on the edge of the lake.

this Is a beautifull place but unfortunately the flamingoes stay far away in the lake and are hardly to see. there are nice walkways and viewpoints, but no binoculars available so you just think you saw the animals. there is a visitor center with some background information. I would not go again.

Admittedly we arrived after the visitor centre closed at 7pm ... but it would make sense for it to open a bit later? The paths are well maintained, but the flamingoes were a long way from the visitor centre. Some other birds nearer by ...

Visited this lovely natural parkland and salt lake to see the flamingos. Very disappointed to find that there were only about 500 currently resident and they were too far away in the centre of the lake to see. Some up to date information posted on the website about the birds would have been useful. We found out from a very... More

This is a beautiful site frequented by all sorts of wildlife but birds in particular. Best known for its flamingoes which can be easily seen on the smaller lake as well as the large lagoon. Well kept walkways enable access by disabled visitors too. There is also an interesting visitor centre here but unfortunately very few of the signs are... More

Tranquil location and well laid out paths towards the lakes/hides with quite a few flamingoes and other birds to see. But why does the Visitor Centre shut for siesta? What a stupid situation for a tourist attraction; it's not like there's a shortage of unemployed people to work there. In the hour we were there, 11 cars pulled up and... More

The Laguna is famous for its breeding Flamingoes but be warned that the majority of them are some distance away. However the pools near the visitor centre regularly have birds on them. The pools certainly enhance the reserve as it concentrates a lot of the birds into a smaller area and the blinds, hides and walkways allow good views with... More

This morning we made a trip to the lake. We arrived at the visitor centre and saw a couple of flamingos right away. The walk around the visitor centre is oke, there are a couple of small lakes with also a couple of flamingos. The big lake was very dry this time of the year. We walked to la vicaria,... More

What a wonderful place to visit near the town of Fuente de Piedra. The track from the main road leads to ample parking and a very interesting and informative information centre with photos and explanations. There are walks around the lake but depending on the time of year you are best to stay near the centre to see the flamingoes.... More

What an amazing place! A place not be be missed even if you are not an ardent birdwatcher. Well laid out paths and a good visitor reception area. The paths do divert you away from the lake but this is to protect the lagoon and to give the flamingos a more natural environment. So glad we visited and will return... More
