The building shown in the photograph, Casa Rosa has 3 excellent computer controlled cameras which enables you to focus in on the birds. It is also possible to take a boat ride through the marsh with plenty of mosquito repellent.

It's a great place to walk around and watch different birds. We used the bank of river to go there and took photos of nature.

It's a very nice area and we were amazed by the animals and birds that we saw. From flamingoes to fox which is very rare and special. Definitely recommend to go and explore the beauty of nature (we went with a guided boat tour)
