Isla Corazon Mangrove Reserve

Reviewed By Hal E - Chicago, Illinois

We were picked up at our hotel in a small covered boat and brought to Isla Corazon where we switched to a canoe. Our guide was very knowledgeable about wildlife in the area and pointed out many species of birds. The trip through the mangroves took about 45 minutes and it was peaceful and quiet. Wonderful trip.

Museo Bahia de Caraquez

Reviewed By Geoffrey I - Colchester, United Kingdom

Important historical and archeological exhibits of the area are displayed to a very high standard, although many of the descriptions are in Spanish it's fairly straightforward to understand the basic information.
There was a very interesting art gallery upstairs, the attendants were very helpful. Good toilet facilities.

Playa La Bellaca

Reviewed By Proprietor_BahiaBnB - Quito, Ecuador

As you walk along Bahia's Malecón you'll probably wonder where the beach is exactly. Just 5 minutes from Bahia in car is Punta Bellaca, or Bahia's missing beach. It's here that you'll find an incredibly laid back and peaceful atmosphere by its beautiful sandy shores, away from the noise and crowds that make up the city; and perhaps even find yourself grateful that Bahia's hidden beach isn't right up against civilization. To arrive from the backside of Bahia. $2 in taxi. Just be sure to coordinate with the driver on getting back/having a pick-up time.

You can also walk down the beach from Bahia during low tide to arrive

Mirador de la Cruz

Reviewed By global3adventure - Quito, Ecuador

Unbelievable that this most famous icon of Bahia de Caraquez and one of Bahia's major attractions is not yet on Trip Advisor.
Climb up one of several staircases in the early morning, or early evening to avoid the mid day heat or take a taxi. While the park and the cross itself is in need of some TLC you climb several stories within the cross for some magnificent vistas of the entire region. Wonderful views of the ciudela of Bahia, the estuary, San Vicente, Canoa & Cerro Seco. This icon's unmistakable silhouette is lit at night defining Bahia.

Luigi picked us up in the morning and drove us to the fishing community that takes care of Isla del Corazon. They took us out on a boat to a nesting site for many, many different birds. We even got into a smaller canoe so...MoreThanks Kibbe, It is a pleasure to serve you. We hope to see you again in our city. Best regards. Luigi
