* Numerous tour agents organise trips to the Poor Man's Galapagos: ''Isla la Plata'' (standard price for tourists $40 - bargaining seems worthwhile, some pay only half that price!, 1 1/2 hours boat ride). On the island you will be able to see plenty of blue and red footed boobies, frigate birds, sea turtles, and if you're lucky, sea lions. The tour is combined with whale watching trips, if it's the right season. The humpbackwhale season is from June to September. Diving is also possible. Agencies offering this trip include Palo Santo, Machalilla and Adventuris. All are located along the waterfront in Puerto Lopez and all include transport, guides, lunch, water, snorkelling mask (not fins).
