    A good place to see several species of birds is at the Laguna de Rocha.
    It is located just 5 miles west of La Paloma. In 1977 it was made a National Park.
    One sand strip seperates it from the ocean. More than 220 species have been seen here along with many mammals.

    Faro

    El Faro del Cabo Santa Maria was constructed in 1874. It is all white except for the red and white striped tower.
    It is open to the public in the summer months and on week-end throughout the rest of the year..
    We were there during the week so we could only see the outside.

    Quiet beach

    La Paloma has wide sandy beaches for your enjoyment. Close to town are the quiet waters, the farther east you go the less protection you have from the surf.

    We found the beaches deserted when we were there in April. I am told that a few visitors show up on week-ends but for the most part everything closes up after the end of Feb.

    There are around 5,000 permanent residents that live here but during the summer months (Dec, Jan, and Feb) the population swells to 30,000.
