The "Churute Mangroves Eco Reserve" created in 1979 with 49, 383 hectares. The Reserve aims to protect one of the few coastal rain-forests and mangroves that still survive in the world. It is located just 45 minutes from Guayaquil a paradise for bird-watching.

• ESTUARY ROUTE: A place where you learn about the wildlife of the estuary. The mangrove ecosystem and its importance, the interaction between plants, crabs and
birds. A place where we can see dozens of species of birds in their natural habitat.

• THE HOWLER MONKEYS ROUTE : A short trail walk ( 0. 8 mile) through a tropical dry forest, one of the few remaining virgin forests in mainland Ecuador. A place to have a close encounter with the bustle of the howler monkeys in the middle of the pristine habitat of a dry tropical forest.

Enjoy a delicious traditional Ecuadorian lunch in a rustic cottage by the river
