The boat ride and island were spectacular! Boat ride is boat ride, sometimes seas don’t cooperate. We were in Guayaquil so we needed transport to Puerto Lopez. That was the scary part. The van looked nice but clearly needed work. We were bounced around as they needed shocks in a big way, among other things. Suffice to say, beware of the driving arrangements.
Together with Ninfa Lara and Yamil i made 3 tours, not only as a customor but in a very friendly way they showed and told me all about the trip and about the social and economy of Ecuador. I am very thinkfull. very nice greeting, Roel from Holland.
This was a great tour!!!
It's a long drive from Guayaquil, but the driver and tour organizer makes it a comfortable ride, and it is worth it to see the turtles, crabs and birds. The park tour guides are great. Their English is very good, they are very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. There is a fair amount of hiking involved to see the bird nests but totally worth it if you are able. The guides really want to show you a good time. The boat to/from the island takes about an hour, and stopped several times as there were humpback whales in the area, so they stopped for viewing. The snorkeling was OK, but the fish variety was limited.
