At Lagos de Menegua we believe that interacting with nature is the best way to recognize its value. Our sustainable tourism option is the best way promote conservation for years to come.
Under this philosophy we offer, our guests enjoy 1.000 acres of natural reserve where they are able to discover the region’s magic.
Lagos de Menegua is home to more than 800 species ranging from mammals to fish, reptiles and birds. Our guests have sighted pumas, alligators, lizards, iguanas and chigüiros, a giant rodent indigenous to the region.
As part of our work with Cormagdalena, the region’s environmental agency, we have released back into their habitat over 200 animals in a safe, responsible and secure manner. These species can now live protected from the dangers of modern life inside Lagos de Menegua’s natural reserve.
In Lagos de Menegua, our guest will be able to learn about one of the region’s main economic activities: fish farming. We have built a sustainable model, reaching a balance between production and the conservation of our natural resources.
Lagos de Menegua is located in the heart of the country’s oil production fields. Despite the challenges this poses, we have opted to preserve the reserve in its purest form.
To help us with this goal, part of the proceeds from our guest’s stays goes directly to the conservation of the reserve and the preservation of the local species. You will see this charge in your bill as a “sustainability charge”.
One of the best activities at the Lagos de Menegua natural reserve is bird sighting. We have registered over 235 different species including the pajuil bird, 18 types of tarangas, the colorful sun herons and red, white and black corocoras.
We have the largest amount of bird sightings in the Meta state, and are among the top 15 places in the country to carry out this activity.
