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.

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.

This was really a top excursion, what a lovely place with diving Pelicans and lots of beautiful Flamingos. After a short stroll with English speaking guide we boarded a small rowing boat. The rowing guide was a Cuban Spanish speaking fellow, with was lots of fun trying to have conversations. It was a truly beautiful place which should not be missed at Cuba.…

A very nice Flamingo lagoon. The trip is done with a small rowing boat (water are shallow) and you see a lot of birds and the Flamingo flocks. Very nice trip of an hour or so.

The customer service here is non-existent. (Like most tours in Cuba) Staff arrive to open the ticket counter late. You are then standing around waiting for the guide to arrive. The guide who took us on the bushwalking was very good knowledge and funny. Once you arrive at the jetty you are again waiting for the boat guides to arrive. They don't ask you what language you speak you are just pushed towards a guide and then pushed into the boat. We speak no Spanish and were put with a Spanish speaking guide so we got very little explanation or information on the birdlife. Another couple who only spoke Spanish were put with the English speaking guide??? It was quite a nice on the lagoon, peaceful and picturesque, but you cant get too close to the flamingos. Unless you have a huge zoom lens you won't get very good photos. If you manage to get a guide that speaks the same language you might have a better experience than we did. Definitely do the first tour as it would get too hot later in the day.…
