The Albufera park was just a slow boat ride in a lake, to see nature. Nothing more than that, we saw a couple of egrets and birds. Boat driver spoke only Spanish. If you have ever seen the Everglades in Florida it looks just like that. Trip was not worth the time, it is better to use your time in the city sights, if you are staying a short time.
