Los Manglares de Puerto Pizarro, Tumbes

(420+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
Explore Los Manglares de Puerto Pizarro, a largely untamed area of biological diversity and impressive greenery. Take a boat tour to see major waterways and mangrove forests that hug their sides. Bring your binoculars to spot flamingos, boobies, and pelicans, and keep your eyes peeled for crocs. Numerous tour groups operate here, with some taking visitors off to local zoos rather than the wilderness. Ask around about the experience you can book before you settle on a single operator. Los Manglares de Puerto Pizarro is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Tumbes Edition.
