Everything was ok, good food, service and very big and great natural juicies. A little bit expensive, but worthy.

This beach was gorgeous and empty. Kayaks can be rented. We took a picnic lunch and spent a couple of hours there.

You need to book transport here but it is worth it if you have a spare half day on your trip. Not a must see but a nice way to pass an afternoon. Snorkelling wasn't possible when we were there as there was a lot of surf. Animals were staying hidden as well!!

We did see a flamingo, even though they are very rare there now. We enjoyed a long walk through a mangrove wood to the beach.

El Garrapatero is a long way to go to visit a beach, but once you arrive, it´s beautiful. Not a great place for snorkelling on the beach, but you can rent kayaks and go a bit further out. Make sure if you go to set a time for the taxi to pick you up. It´s far outside Puerto Ayora and there won´t be transport unless you have it organized.
