Guanaroca Lagoon Reviews
One of the best out in nature activities in Cienfuegos. I definitely would recommend doing the boat ride to get closer to the flamingos. Amazing experience for all ages. more »
Did the boat ride to see the flamingos. Our guide didn't speak much English but rowed us close and they were beautiful. A highlight of our trip. more »
We went a morning tour to see the flamingo, the tour finished in 2 hours. We walked along the park and went on the lake to see the flamingos. We took the taxi there (arranged by the tour company) and the cost including the ticket was around 10CUC per person. The man who rowed the boat for us was super nice and tried to bring us as close as possible (but still a bit too far to watch without the binoculars) The short tour is actually an interesting experience. Don't expect you will stay close with the flamingos but you can also watch some more different birds and lizards during the tour.
Great opportunity to see flamingos in natural environment
