Anglers come in search of that elusive 18kg snook, though they abandon ship April through July, when the park is closed to fishing (a good time to get a bargain price on accommodations). Birders flock here each year from January through March to witness a vast and abundant assortment of waterfowl. During the dry season water levels drop dramatically, which then leaves the fish and birds in rather close quarters. Being unpleasant for the fish but the birds seems to have a feeding frenzy. From January to March, when migratory birds land in large numbers, avian density is most definitely world class.If you are a nature enjoyer and love this kind of activities this is a must do trip.
