PEACOCKS!.............just about everywhere! At every turn it seemed that you encounter a peacock. Sometimes just one roaming about......sometimes in groups. They even hang out near the food huts by the pool looking for people to drop some crumbs or some french fries. Some are even bold enough to come right up to you while you sit at a table to eat.
They even stroll around the poolside as if they own the place........and they probably do!......after all, before this place was built they were already here. It is obvious that Iberostar takes great strides to do its best at preserving the natural beauty of this area and its natural inhabitants.
The peacocks roam about everywhere....even on the breezeways that surround the lagoon. They go about minding their own business and walk around wherever they choose to go. They are so beautiful. In the evenings they seem to congregate together and sit up high on tree limbs for the night. It is at this time they will occasionally start raising a ruckous. The first time I heard them it sounded like a bunch of kids yelling at each other. I have no idea what this means but if you have never heard it before, it is quite startling. The ruckous doesn't last very long but it sure does make you stop in your tracks and wonder what the heck is going on. I read a review on the internet about this resort and the author was whining about the noise from the peacocks and advised to not stay in a bungalow near them. My bungalow was right next to the peacocks at night and they never kept anyone awake at night..........it just never happened.
