From The Finch Bay hotel, this is a short walk. It is delightful and takes you past the cactus on lava, and through the mangrove swamp up to a gorge for swimming / snorkelling and a view point. The walk also takes you past the...More

Such a cool spot. Free to get to besides the $1 water taxi. A fun adventure, but you need to be slightly athletic to make it all the way to the back- climbing over slippery rocks gets a little challenging. Bring a snorkel and mask...More

This is worth the trek. You catch a boat from the main pier of Puerto Ayoro, pay 80 cents and walk for 15 minutes. Once you pass the beach los alemanos and the salt pan, you will be welcomed by an amazing sight of blue...More

Definitely one of my favorite spots!! The water is crystal clear & if you have snorkeling equipment you will see beautiful wonders! There are a few underwater tunnels that you can explore! Fabulous day trip!

Great scenery after a very easy hike. Refreshing dip in the revine and lots of fish to see snorkelling.

Wanted to do this place but at low tide the entry rocks were covered with very slippery moss, although it didn't seem to slow down local kids! Did not want to crack my skull or anything. At high tide this would be very nice.

An interesting place to visit. But we got there around 2:00 and I was a little crowded and loud. We heard morning is better, and maybe you could be alone

A really lovely place to go. We went very early in the morning - you just get a yellow water taxi from the docks (we made the mistake of going when everyone was getting their ferries for a different island, but it was easy enough...More

They closed at 5, but we talked our way to go there and see it, but not swim as they were closing. The walk itself was interesting passing the salt marshes too.

Perdón por la tardanza. Si tiene horario hasta las seis. Normalmente se va en barca pero se puede acceder andando desde el puerto en Puerto Ayora!
