We will meet you at the taxi stand in front of the village and walk with you to the lagoon. At the lagoon, we will board an 18 foot fishing panga and head out to explore the lagoon. Depending on the time of year, you may see roseate spoonbills, many species of cranes, herons, egrets and storks, kingfishers, crocodiles and more. If the lagoon is deep enough, we will venture back to the salt flats where you can see salt being produced the old fashioned way. We will have binoculars and bird guides on hand to help you with identification and let nature do most of the talking!
