We took a day tour with averturaslaplata.com which has an office in Puerto Lopez in the center at the malecon. But we booked and payed in our hotel. (30$ pp) We walked to the boat and then it took about 1,5 hours to get there . On the island is a building and there a bathrooms.
We were two groups with two guides. Our guide was good, showed us the frigade birds and the boobies and some plants etc. He tried to sell some oil of a plant and another tour, which was a bit akward, but he was not persistant, so it was OK.
The walk was very easy, maybe 1,5 hours total. After we came back to the boat we got fruit, a sandwich and a drink on board. Then we had the chance to see see turtles and lots of fish- and go snorkeling, before we went back. The boat is very fast so it bounces a lot. Can be fun, if you don`t get sick
Don`t go to the toilet on the boat, it is a challenge with this fast boat, even if it slows down.The boat was in a very good condition.
The only thing which left a bad feeling was that my friends camera was not in her backpack anymore when we came back to the hotel. It looked like it disappeared while we were snorkeling, but who knows?
