Beautiful landscapes, excellent to do with a guide because in addition to bringing very interesting information about the local fauna and flora, you know the route well to avoid places with more accumulation of mud and holes. It is a trail that can be done alone but I advise with a guide as there are areas with lots of mud. In the lagoon it is cold and windy even with sun in the summer.
