Wildlife Area Nature / Park
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.

  • We chose a tour in the Plaza of tumbes which left $12 per person. It included boat ride into the mangroves, the explanation of the Guide, has also led us to the crocodile farm (admission is 5 soles) and two beaches where we could have lunch (if you wish to do so if not). Tip: sometimes branches are found (I don't know if they are so called) the mangrove floating you them you can take home and place them in water (as it is done with bamboo shoots) grow! Very nice ride, including view of different birds.

  • In Puerto Pizarro the cebiche de conchas is eaten more fresh from the Peru, direct from the mangrove to the dish. The place has a very nice Boardwalk and also has a zoocriadero of crocodiles

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.
