This tour was awesome. I was reluctant to drive 3 hours but pleasantly surprised. The pink lakes alone were well worth it all. As for the different species of birds, we didn't see too many. Maybe an off day? Our tour guide, Damian was great!...More

Amazing big fishing with Diego and Martin. We had a great moment and wonderful time on the boat with Diego and Martin. We even shared the fish at the restaurant Ria Mara with an outstanding view on the sea
