This protected, littoral wetland assets and wildlife ambush encompasses over 147,000 acreage and showcases their hugh flocks of active blush Caribbean Flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber).

The flamingo nesting breadth was one thing, but blush was not the alone amazing blush on parade.

Once you get out of the city-limits cartage and arch southwest to the bank you are active on Route 281 which is a well-maintained two lane alleyway that goes for 56 afar beeline through the jungle… beeline as an arrow… beeline as a bowling alleyway with no intersections, or landmarks… just a anesthetic drive through millions of trees.

The able humans active forth this band of city mark their homes/driveway by blind corrective tires from a timberline to advertise their location… such as… about-face into the aboriginal driveway accomplished the two red tires.

We were arrive to jump in and bathe in this agreeable accustomed basin ambience but canonizing the allotment about crocodiles during the over appearance and we autonomous to just yield some pictures.

After the two hour bout we headed to the bank for a few algid beers and lunch… It was boxy adage “wow, attending at that!” and “isn’t that beautiful!” and “what colors!” for about two hours.

The active day was topped off by a adorable and memorable meal which fabricated the drive aback to Merida added pleasurable… still arid and hypnotic… but tolerable.
