Our goal is to give you an exciting adventure you will never forget in Machalilla National Park. We want to make sure you really enjoy the incredible humpback whale watching and amazing marine life sightings off the coast of Puerto Lopez.
Enjoy the main attractions of the Machalilla National Park. Beach, whales (June to September), and snorkel...
➡️In the morning... Enjoy Los Frailes Beach, one of the prettiest beaches in Ecuador, is set in Machalilla National Park and has exceptionally warm, clear waters – great for swimming and discovering the dry forest and their landscapes, animals, and flowers.
➡️In the afternoon... Whale Watching Tour (June to September) or Coastal Tour (October to May) in Salango Island.
From June until October, humpback whales migrate more than 7,000 km from Antarctica to the shores of Machalilla National Park in Ecuador. This is a preferred area for humpbacks for mating and their calves born here. Or other months in the year, you can visit Salango Island and enjoy the Snorkel tour with tropical fishes.
This is the unique real opportunity to have direct contact with nature and enjoy the hearth of Machalilla National Park. At the end of whale watching, we will go to the Salango Island or other small islands and we have the chance to swimming or use a snorkel to enjoy the reef corals and other marine animals.
100% guaranteed whale watching (June to September). If you do not see them, we will refund your money.
¡Enjoy the adventure¡
