This Manglares Churute Ecological Reserve is one of the most extensive and accessible in the coast. It covers over 35,000 hectares from which 8100 hectares protect different species of mangroves and the rest protects tropical dry forest on the Chongón Ridge. On the different regions of the reserve have been registered, a healthy population of two species of monkeys, a variety of coastal and marine birds, dolphins, and the only coastal population of Horned Screamers.
This eco-touristic Project is held by the fishermen community of Puerto El Morro, we visit a small and still basic interpretation center, to continue navigating on the peaceful waters of this extensive inlet where bottle nosed dolphins will swim and swirl along our canoe. Tropical birds’ observation and magnificent mangrove landscapes on a short easy hike on the Egrets Island complete this wonderful day.
