Bird Watching and Lagoon Tours
Playa Blanca is rich in birdlife. Simply watching the pelicans, gulls and frigates as you walk the beach is a pleasure.
Even greater birdwatching opportunities await in the lagoon behind the village of Barra de Potosi at the south end of Playa Blanca. There, paddle boats can be rented or guides with motorboats hired for birdwatching tours, but the best way to enjoy the lagoon is by kayak. You don’t need to have experience to take an ecological kayak tour. A local fisherman-guide will help you discover the many different types of birds in the natural mangroves.
In Laguna de Potosi, you will spot roseate spoonbills and a host of other birds. The lagoon is a huge flat saltwater lagoon which is excellent for kayaking and birds watching. Bring your binoculars, cameras, hat and sun block, and be ready for a fantastic adventure.
