Day 03
Puerto Lopez

Puerto Lopez - Isla de la Plata - Puerto Lopez

Hotel: Local Hotel or similar

Today we'll travel to Isla de la Plata.

Plata Island is surrounded by the Machalilla Marine Reserve that protects coral reefs where marine life is varied and exciting and between July and November receives the magnificent Humpback whales.

The island has two routes or hiking trails, both with spectacular views, where you can find interesting colonies of blue footed boobies, masked boobies, frigate birds and albatrosses, the reason why it’s been locally known as “Little Galapagos.” It has a desert climate in which plant species
have adapted forming an interesting dry tropical forest. The Plata Island became named after “the
silver” seen in the distance, caused by the reflection of the sun on the abundance of guano which covers the site.

Some pre Columbian vestiges from native and Inca cultures have been found in site, evidence of an interesting past as research port for the exploitation of the Spondylus priceps shells, precious ornament for ritual use by the Amerindian peoples. After the hike, we’ll enjoy a light box lunch and have an opportunity of snorkeling in this beautiful marine reserve.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.
