The southeast part of the Zapata swamps is dominated by shallow lagoons and stripes of mangrove thickets in between.
Maybe together with Cayo Coco the best place to enjoy shore birds in Cuba. The shallow water attracts thousands of flamingos, herons but also many different waders and migrating birds. It is also very good accessible and easy to bird, due to a gravel road and five surveillance platforms along the 20 km road.
Best to visit by car due to the long distances and the gravel road that is not reliably in good condition, especially during wet season and during dry season the exposure to the direct sunlight. During dry season accessible by any car and also bikes, but during wet season you may need an offroad vehicle.
Every single inlet and lagoon is worth a look, it may surpirse you with rough numbers of Black-necked Stilt, American Flamingo, etc. or with a surprise.
