Because of excessive water extraction by local farmers this wetland almost ceased to exist a few years back; there was even underground combustion of the peat! The authorities are now transferring water from elsewhere to maintain reasonable water levels, at least during the springtime. I visited on two weekdays and the park is large enough to find peaceful areas away... More

This review is about the excellent expedition we had with Vincente who runs Natura Indomita birding tours. He took us to Daimiel which is a very nice park with easy walking on well-maintained boardwalks through a variety of water-based habitats. Vincente is a pro when it comes to bird identification and worked hard to make sure we could see as... More

There are 3 routes to take. If you want to explore all 3 and include some bird watching, you will need as minimum 3 hours. Was there today, very nice and calm. Very few people. Would recommend for nice time and walk in the nature.

We set the GPS Navigator up for the park and it led us to the small visitors' centre. Here a very pleasant guide passed us a map and gave us itinerary suggestions. There are plentiful options for guided tours where you will receive binoculars, but you can enjoy the visit without this. There are three walking routes from the visitors'... More

This is a great spot in the summer for birds. We were there in the winter which limits the number of birds that you can see... However, you will want to go to the blinds that conceal you from the birds that they have in an enclosure. They are rehabilitating injured birds and some they keep for educational purposes. You...

Nice place for a walk. Not spectacular, but a bit different than most places. I guess it was more impressive when there were more water around...

Not worth seeing. It seems there have been several dry years and the local farmers had been taking the wáter. There was wáter when we visited but we only saw 2 ducks. There were plenty of stuffed ducks and geese in the visitor centre but no one has invited live ones back.

I guess this place is fantastic for bird watching, at the right moments that is. For just hiking, the place is clearly not as good as it used to be, but still some nice views, and since there is not much more around there, worth visiting

Beautiful aquatic environment in middle of dry La Mancha. It's a good place for people who enjoy bird watching.

We didn't know what Las Tablas de Daimiel was until we got there (recommended by our hotel's receptionist). We discovered an incredible bird-watching park where you walk on top of wood stilted bridges in the middle of lakes and general greenery. Absolutely amazing and very serene. Make sure to go into the wooden huts to sit and watch the wildlife... More
