Laguna las Ninfas, Puerto Ayora

4.3
#3 of 18 in Nature in Galapagos Islands
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.

  • Beautiful lagoon, interesting birds and other small creatures to quietly watching. Good explanation on all the different signs mangrove plants. Few people so please take the time to explore all quiet. It is small but a beautiful nature park entrance fee is free

  • Interesting place with walkways around the lagoon. The color of the water ensures some beautiful pictures. It is near the beginning of the path to Tortuga Bay.

  • A place to appreciate the silence and the sounds of the mangrove. It is not a lake is an estuary, to sea lions with luck they can be found.
