We only saw a couple of fish
Jul 2021
We visited Laguna las Ninfas twice. Once was in the afternoon (around 3:00 p.m.) and once in the morning (8:00 a.m.). Each time there were only a couple of fish swimming around. Furthermore, there looks to have been an elevated boardwalk which went around the laguna at one time, but this is no longer accurate. It is a peaceful place if you would like to sit on the wobbly decking for a few minutes, but that's about it.

We visited Las Ninfas as part of our city tour with our Hotel Torre Mar Galapagos Boutique Suites. We enjoyed it so much we went back by ourselves. It is a nice peaceful walk in town that I really enjoyed.

I had some spare time on hand and decided to visit this emerald-green watering hole. It closed 2 months ago for refurbishment and there is no indication when it will reopen.

Peaceful
Nov 2019
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 as well as fish of many varieties, colours and size. Truly one of Earths treasures and beautifully preserved.

If you are looking for a quite place to spend a little time, this is a nice place to chill. Close in town.

just a pond nothing else

peaceful pond, can see some small fish, the trail is broken, can be dangerous for small kids, not sure why they are not being repaired.

Peaceful refuge
Jul 2019
Having read reviews, I did not expect much, but as we were spending four nights in Puerto Ayora it seemed worth a stop. I ended up going back the next day because I enjoyed it so much. It's very peaceful and there is interesting signage in English and Spanish describing the flora (and some amusing carvings on the fence only in Spanish).

While I personally didn't see much in the way of wildlife besides some little fish, it was a peaceful refuge that I really enjoyed. And it's free! The only way to make it better would be to make the boardwalk so that it was a loop rather than an out-and-back.

don't overlook this quiet spot!
Jul 2019 • Business
If you go in the morning, this is a magical place with few to no other people around. You can see lots of birds and fish, all 4 species of mangroves, and take a nap on one of the boardwalk outcrops. I saw a sea turtle one day and a sea lion another. A good way to be immersed in animal sounds in the city.

Do note that teenagers like to hang out here in the late afternoon/early evening so it's not so quiet, then!

Nice place to see
Jun 2019 • Friends
Just 5 minutes from town center and it’s free. Fun to walk around and see the different iguanas and there were also a sea lion swimming around. Spend 30 minutes there.

A quiet lagoon in town.
May 2019
A peaceful lagoon in the middle of Puerto Ayora which has signs explaining the vegetation and fish which live there. Well worth an hour of your time!!
