This package combines the most popular excursions that Puerto Lopez has to offer into a truly memorable experience.

After checking in to your hotel on the day you arrive, you can choose between a kayak or bicycle excursion before supper.

Day 2 takes you to Plata Island (Silver Island), which is a smaller version of the Galapagos located within Machalilla National Park. Here you will encounter many of the same birds species found on the Galapagos, such as the blue-footed booby, red-footed booby, Nazca booby, frigatebird, and occasionally albatross. A coral reef encircles the island and hosts a wide variety of marine species, including manta rays, tropical fishes, and turtles. The island itself boasts a beautiful landscape and the perfect environment to explore and watch the wildlife in their natural habitat.

Upon arriving, you will take a 2 hour guided walk to explore the island and see the birds before returning to the boat for lunch and a short rest. After lunch you will have the opportunity to snorkel (about 1 hour) where you can observe the coral reef and its various inhabitants, such as fish and turtles.

In addition, from June to October you will be able to observe humpback whales in the waters of the park. They migrate to the warm Ecuadoran waters each year to mate and give birth before returning south to the colder waters of the Antarctic regions where food is plentiful.

On Day 3 you will explore Agua Blanca and Los Frailes Beach. Agua Blanca is a privileged community located within the borders of the park that claims the status of the last Indian capital. There is an interesting archaeological museum with artifacts from pre-Incan times and a sulphur pool that you can swim in (bring your swimsuit!) that many believe has healing properties.

Los Frailes (The Friars) is one of the most beautiful beaches in Ecuador and also lies within the Machalilla National Park. It is a series of three beaches in
