Lake Gotomeer has charism and can be passed on the way to Rincon . The lake is pretty big and is visited by pelicans to complete this beautiful picture . In this neighbourhood many other birds can be seen .

Although we did see Flamingos they were not very close to the road. U can even see ethem in other parts of the island even tho they are not concentrated like at the lake. It is on the South tour we did with Sunrise Tours.,
