  • Beautiful, peaceful and educational place, with so many bird species to spot! A place where to discover your birdwatcher's talents! :)
  • Somewhat expensive - $10 US for entry. Some nice views walking around, although the park is fairly small. We saw two flamingos from a very far distance and a few other interesting birds, but we felt we could have enjoyed the scenery just as much in some of the other areas in El Calafate that you don't have to pay for.
