#1 of 15 in Parks in Puerto Villamil
Get in touch with the local aquaculture population with a visit to the islet of Las Tintoreras. The turquoise waters of the bay are sheltered, providing a perfect spot for sea lions, sea turtles, marine iguanas, stingrays, and reef sharks to hang around. At low tide, the bay is connected to a small shallow pool of clear water, where you can get an up-close look at the sharks. Survey the marine life from a lava deck above, or grab your snorkel and jump right in. Our Puerto Villamil trip itinerary planning site makes visiting Las Tintoreras and other Puerto Villamil attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
