Trip Planner: South America / Ecuador / Galapagos Islands / Isabela / Puerto Villamil / Las Tintoreras
Get in touch with the local aquaculture population with a visit to the islet of Las Tintoreras. The turquoise waters of the bay are sheltered, providing a perfect spot for sea lions, sea turtles, marine iguanas, stingrays, and reef sharks to hang around. At low tide, the bay is connected to a small shallow pool of clear water, where you can get an up-close look at the sharks. Survey the marine life from a lava deck above, or grab your snorkel and jump right in. Our Puerto Villamil trip itinerary planning site makes visiting Las Tintoreras and other Puerto Villamil attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Las Tintoreras reviews
You can see almost every animal just hanging out, you don't need a tour. That is why I chose Isabella island. Once you are there it has everything you need. more »
This is reachable only by boat. There are many marine iguanas here. Also saw sea lions, whitetip sharks and a turtle from the land. A must do activity. more »
You have to book a tour to get here, we got to see some penguins. Further in we saw sea lions playing in the water, chasing reef sharks and trying to bite the white tips of their tails. It was super cute and entertaining to watch.
Loved it here! Walked around on lava formations with lots of marine iguanas all over! Then see the white tipped reef sharks in the slit of water between the high rock formations. Then great snorkeling with so many turtles that my friends and I had to make sure we didn't touch them.
