When to Get There

The most ideal time to see the lagoon is during the dry season, from June to October. Come early in the day to have enough time to explore the park and hike around the lagoon. Additionally, clouds tend to roll in later in the afternoon. Weekends tend to be crowded and parking can be difficult.
