Sea turtles gather at the shore at this location, providing a great opportunity for travelers to see and interact with the animals.

  • Amazing place and really cheap. For 5 soles you can enter the pier and for another 10 you get an 1 hour boat ride and swimm in the ocean next to the boat with enormous turtles. Nice daytrip from Mánco...  more »

  • A place is beautiful, sea, sky, wildlife... You are definitely in love. Turtles are close to the pier and come if you give them fish to eat, eye not the touches. Visit the Nuro is super accessible to the Pocket, are 5 Suns from entrance to the pier, and you can download to be able to swim with the turtles within a perimeter pointed out in the same sea... But also by 10 soles you can upload to a boat, they give you a promenade along the shore and then stop a little away from the dock so you can swim with them... Rental of snorkeling is optional and costs 5 soles, as there are locals that they can take your photos or videos with a GoPro in the sea for 20 soles. It is a hilarious ride relaxing. To my I love!
