Trip Planner: South America / Ecuador / Galapagos Islands / Santa Cruz / Puerto Ayora / Laguna las Ninfas
Stroll the wooden pathway under bright green mangroves at Laguna las Ninfas. Study the water for sea turtles and baby sharks, and pay attention to descriptive signage to learn more about the trees. Away from the busy harbor (but an easy walk from the town center), the inlet supports many bird species, such as waders and warblers, which nest in mangrove treetops. The lagoon's blend of fresh and salt water teems with marine and freshwater fish, playful sea lions, and stingrays. Put Laguna las Ninfas into our Puerto Ayora trip itinerary planning tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Puerto Ayora.
Laguna las Ninfas reviews

Possibly the most relaxing and peaceful lagoon I have visited. Not only an abundance of wildlife above the waterline but below were baby hammerhead, white tipped and black tipped sharks, baby seals... more »
If you don't have time, I would skip this, but if you have several days on Santa Cruz, I highly recommend this area. You walk on a boardwalk through the mangrove forest. You see lots of bird life and many fish in the clear waters. You can watch the big fish chasing (and sometimes eating) the smaller fish. You may see birds come in and catch some fish too. It is a nice relaxing walk.
It does not take long to travel and is one of the hidden treasures of Puerto Ayora. He's on the way to Tortuga Bay. Look at the walk, you can find hidden phrases. Note: It is very important to use repellent.
