Las Tintoreras, Puerto Villamil

(600+ reviews on the web)
Island
Get in touch with the local aquaculture population with a visit to the islet of Las Tintoreras. The turquoise waters of the bay are sheltered, providing a perfect spot for sea lions, sea turtles, marine iguanas, stingrays, and reef sharks to hang around. At low tide, the bay is connected to a small shallow pool of clear water, where you can get an up-close look at the sharks. Survey the marine life from a lava deck above, or grab your snorkel and jump right in. To visit Las Tintoreras on your trip to Puerto Villamil, use our Puerto Villamil trip itinerary maker.

  • THE excursion to blue sharks, is a half day excursion (at 40dls) that brings you closer to the islets that are arriving at the Islands, the same haras a snorkel and you can hike above the blue shark Island, is a pretty wildlife excursion, but I recommend that if the interest is to make it, it prior to tunnels , since then may seem less interesting.
