A Visit to the Flamingo Reserve

Santuario de Flora y Fauna Los Flamencos is a flamingo reserve about 20 minutes outside of Riohacha.

It's quite an adventure to get to the flamingos. A few hikes and at least one boat ride are needed. Even if the flamingos are a let-down, the scenery is stunning and the boat ride is relaxing.

The whole process from Riohacha and back may take four to six hours, depending on the speed of your progress.

The ending of a beautiful day

A trip to Santuario de Flora y Fauna Los Flamencos is well worth the effort.

It’s a tiring day due to the heat, but being close to the water and seeing a different part of Colombia was very rewarding and I’m looking forward to doing it again when visiting Riohacha.
