Wherever you may come from, Santa Marta or Riohacha, to reach the Los Flamencos Sanctuary you have to take a motorcycle taxi. The motorcycle will drop you off on the beach, where once a year the lagoon empties. There you have to hire a boat to take you slowly and silently up to the huge colony of pink flamingos living in the reserve. The experience is touching. The boatman, mine was named Robinson Paramo, advances his boat on the shallow water with a long pole. The sight of flamingos is wonderful. They are very pink, their beauty filling the depth of the lagoon.
One comes to Camerones because you crave visiting the Wildlife Park of the Flamingos and to discover that their beach is amazing. Rural landscape as whole Guajira, the orange sand beach is dotted with colorful fishing boats and nets.
