As avid birdwatchers this has been one of the top places to visit on our trips south each year. We managed to fit it in this time and, how disappointed we were. It is a beautiful wetland but, few hides, distant views of birds and, hoards of visitors walking the area with no interest in the bird life or respect... More

Large area of w1etlands with paths to walk right into the park and watch the birds. And it's completely free. Wear comfortable shoes and take water

The wetland is a little gem situated around 30 minutes drive from Daimiel. If you're interested in birds, dragonflies and reptiles this is the place for you. There is ample parking and a little visitor centre which gives an overview of the park and which species to find. A series of boardwalks allows you to explore the large lake and... More

Don't get me wrong, I loved the view but I wasn't utterly amazed by it and there were no birds to see :/

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...
