Laguna las Ninfas, Puerto Ayora

(3.8/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Stroll the wooden pathway under bright green mangroves at Laguna las Ninfas. Study the water for sea turtles and baby sharks, and pay attention to descriptive signage to learn more about the trees. Away from the busy harbor (but an easy walk from the town center), the inlet supports many bird species, such as waders and warblers, which nest in mangrove treetops. The lagoon's blend of fresh and salt water teems with marine and freshwater fish, playful sea lions, and stingrays.

  • Very close to the port, which can complement a ride by the same. Opening/closing hours, but I don't remember it... The logical, neither too early nor too late. Don't expect more than a cute wooden path, more interesting information about the flora.
