Located on Ecuador's Pacific coast, the small fishing village of Puerto Lopez is set in the scenic ManabĂ­ Province. This laid-back village is known for its perfect setting and ecotourism opportunities. It possesses a welcoming charm and serves as an excellent base from which to explore the magnificent Machalilla National Park which features incredible natural scenery and some of the most beautiful beaches in Ecuador. Isla de La Plata lies just off the coast and boasts breathtaking landscapes and an abundance of endangered wildlife including blue-footed boobies, and, depending on the season, albatrosses, and frigate birds. Visitors can look forward to a wide range of other wonderful activities such as: browsing the morning fish market, sampling local freshly caught seafood, enjoying the warm tropical days, visiting the indigenous community of Agua Blanca and strolling along the pristine Playa Los Frailes to name just a few.
