The miraculous world of the "Las Tintoreras" islands

The small fishing village of Puerto Villamil invites you to join a boat tour destined for Las Tintoreras, a small islet in the southeast of Isabela. On the way, keep an eye out for sea lions and penguins who like to play in the water. Once on the island, wander through the bizarre lava formations populated by large Iguana colonies. The nimble dragons scurry back and forth, catching flies or enjoying the warmth of the dark lava rocks. On the sandy beach, the sea lions loll in the sun or laze in the shade of the mangroves. Even white tip reef sharks are not uncommon to find in the calm waters of the bay.

After exploring the islands, put on your snorkelling equipment and explore the underwater world with your guide. In addition to sea turtles, you will spot manta rays and other colourful fish - and with a bit of luck, the whitetip reef sharks will also appear.
