Location Information

Highway 19, Km 2 via a Data - General Villamil Playas

Dolphin watching:
Near to Playas (just 14 km) is located Puerto El Morro, where the adventure with dolphins is starting... This is a little town next to a special bay where these marvellous animals learned how to share with humans. They usually escort, as a special company, the small boats sailing on this sweet/salty water. You can also rent these boats to go some place called Bird Island, and in the way you can also ask for sport fishing.

Whale watching:
From June to August, the humpback whales chose the Ecuadorian coast to do a special dance of love, and to conquer the female and complete the reproduction circle. Also the humpback babies get birth here, and learn how to swim next to the mother. It’s possible for the tourist to take special tours from Playas to go further out on the ocean and be part of this amazing nature's miracle.
