Puerto Lopez is in the heart of the Machalilla National Park, where you can enjoy some of the most spectacular beaches, archeological and ecological treasures Ecuador has to offer. For all you marine enthusiasts there is no better place on the coast to take in scuba diving, snorkelling, and surfing. Weather you are experienced or working on your bucket list this will be the right fit for you.
Isla de la Plata
Also know as the "Poor Mans Galapagos". Take a boat trip to the island and enjoy the blue & red footed boobies, nascar boobies, frigate birds, albatross and sometimes sea lions.
Whale Watching Tours
From June to September each year we are honoured to share our waters with a large pod of humpback whales who come here to birth and breed. Take a boat trip to enjoy and photograph these majestic beauties.
Take a day trip to Agua Blanca and immerse yourself in the history of the past. Regenerate yourself in the healing mud of the sulphur lake in the village. Spend a day on an archaeological dig with new friends from around the globe.
Las Frailes Beach
One of Machalilla National Park treasures. This gorgeous beach is a must see. A great place to kick back for the day.
This is one of our favourite day trips. Nestled in amongst the mangroves you can visit another archaeological museum or take in some surfing, chill on the beach and enjoy some great food at the restaurant. Most memorable will be you "Mud Photos"!
