Las Ninfas is a natural water inlet, National Park Area right in town. Lovely quiet walk around the water and beautiful mangroves. Fish in the water and finches as well. The boardwalk is not a loop, just a nice, easy short walk.

We had such a pleasant walk here in the middle of the city. The three types of mangrove were very healthy.

We ere the only ones here - everyone else heads for Turtle Bay. However, this peaceful and secluded lagoon is actually in Puerto Ayora, but not well signposted at all. It is certainly worth a visit, and is really easy to walk round using the...More

This is the kind of spot you visit for a quiet peaceful encounter with nature and yourself. Don't expect to encounter lots of wildlife, this is a meeting between you and the water of the lagoon.
