Puerto Pizarro Review
This small fishing port 14 km (9 mi) north of Tumbes on the way to the Ecuadorean border sits near the point where the Rio Tumbes and the Pacific Ocean meet. The mix of fresh and salt water is ideal for mangroves, not to mention the aquatic creatures that thrive among their roots. While tour operators in Tumbes and Mancora sell half-day or full-day tours starting from the port, it is just as easy to come here and arrange a trip directly. Prices are based on the time and the number of stops, which include bird and wildlife watching in the mangroves, a small reptile zoo, and tiny islands with pleasant beaches and informal beach shack restaurants.
