In May of 2013 took a trip to ecuador. Did not know what to expect but lugged my diving suitcase all of the country until we arrived in Puerto Lopez. Took a 1.5 hour boat ride out to Isla del la Plata where I was soon to realize why I came. We anchored in one area where there were 2 manta cleaning stations. We dove at both stations and saw over 20 different Manta Rays. They would swim by just feet above you with Michel, the dive master/marine biologist, and other divers removing the remora that were attached to some by the dozens. They were very curious and absolutely unafraid of us. Only thing I would change would have been the reservation. I had none and did not realize that they needed time to organize the trips during the off season. No sun the day I dove so water clarity was a bit limited. Also dove with full 5ml suit which was sufficient. Only dove once but well worth lugging my equipment around. Definitely a divers bucket list item!!
