Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Don't plan to spend more time in Puerto Lopez than needed to do the tours.

Liked: The humpback whale watching and tours to Isla de la Plata are well worth the money charged by tour companies. The nearby Agua Blanca in Machalilla National Park is also worth a visit.

Disliked: Other than the tours offered out of the town Puerto Lopez has little to offer.

Travel Type:

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: I'd recommend visiting Isla de la Plata which in the off season (when I travelled) can be arranged for $30US for a whole day trip. There are also jungle trips available within a couple of hours. ATVs, bikes and the like can be hired in the town and provide a great way to see the town and surrounding area.

Liked: Lovely little beach town, still feels relatively untouched by westerners and an ideal place to either relax or party with the locals at one of the many bars on the beach. The beach itself is great and the water was nice and warm, awesome views out over the water and a place I could easily spend a month just chilling out. There was a lack of police presence here but the reason seemed to be that everyone was just happy being by the beach and at no point did I feel unsafe.

Disliked: Nope.

Customer Travel Tip: Go to the other side of the harbour (the side without the wide beach).. There is a really beautiful walkway that ends on a beach with many stones, which looks amazing in the sunshine!

Liked: An amazing, long beach (great for jogging), it doesn't seem dangerous and the weather was amazing!

Disliked: The beach is not very clean.
