We went at the end of April. Unfortunately there were no flamingos and we only saw the mangroves. The tour guides should have a better knowledge if there are any flamingos before even starting the tour.

This is an interesting trip to see the flamingos and is worth the trip. In addition to seeing flamingos, you will also go inside a mangrove swamp.
