Los Manglares de Puerto Pizarro, Tumbes

3.7
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Tumbes Region
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.

  • The contact with nature there is the maximum. There are special places like this, where you can get off and walk to look for shells of all kinds, visiting the islands of birds and contemplate the mangroves. Beautiful!

  • Finally I met Puerto Pizarro and take advantage to visit the mangroves, the place where the famous Northern flavour black shells are extracted

  • Although landscape has nothing to envy to other similar, facilities need improving to provide better service.

Where to stay in Tumbes

High-rise hotels in the city center offer basic rooms and few additional facilities. If you're going to spend a while in the area, consider accommodations farther along the coast. Take the coastal road west out of town to find pleasant seaside resorts and hotels with extensive views of the Pacific.
