Discover the hidden charms of Puerto El Morro on this tour that takes you through its most alluring spots and out onto the water to spot dolphins. Together with a helpful guide, find an abundance wildlife and fauna in the sunny beach town as you explore.
Get picked up from Guayaquil and head to the coastal town of Puerto El Morro. An unassuming rural parish, the quiet place is home to an impressive mangrove, many diverse types of seafowl, and dolphins that swim through the warm waters. Stop first to marvel at the San Jacinto Church, which was built in 1737 and is one Ecuador's few remaining churches from colonial times.
Climb on board a boat and set off for the mangrove, where bottlenose dolphins can be spotted flitting in and out of the water. Known locally as bufeos, the playful dolphins skim near the surface of the water before briefly leaping up into the air. Also keep an eye out for seabirds like herons, pelicans, and blue-footed boobies as you sail. Return to shore and visit a popular bakery to sample its fragrant goods, which are baked in a classic wood oven. Bid Puerto El Morro and its natural treasures farewell as you are chauffeured back to your hotel in Guayaquil.
