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.

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.

Las Grietas is a cute little place, but you have to come either before 7am or late in the afternoon to enjoy its serene beauty. Any other time and you are doomed to be burried under a pile of splashing old Germans, turning the calm...More

It’s basically a “swimming hole” and no formal place to store items. I personally, wouldn’t take an expensive camera although I didn’t feel like anyone was out to steal anything. Lots of families / locals etc but also... More
