Lake Gotomeer has charism and can be passed on the way to Rincon . The lake is pretty big and is visited by pelicans to complete this beautiful picture . In this neighbourhood many other birds can be seen .

Lake Gotomeer is not the only place to see flamingos but it is one with a look out over the lake and the road will take you close to the lake where you might see some up close.

The drive there is the best once there you will see the flamingos. We continued on to Ricon and came back the other side which is also an interesting and safer drive.

As an avid pink flamingo lover, I was in absolute awe when our tour guide turned the corer to Lake Goto! Pink flamingos were everywhere!!!! They were in the street, flying above us and scattered throughout the lake. Every corner we turned, we saw more pink flamingos. I took hundreds of pictures and absolutely loved it! It was one of...

When we visited Bonaire the number one thing I wanted to do was see Flamingos. We took a taxi tour that specifically went to the lake to see the Flamingos. For $25 each we got a 3 hour tour and a great stop at rest area next to the lake. There were Flamingos everywhere and it was estimated that there... More
