This a part of the coast near Puerto Lopez a small fishing village set in an arched bay on the Pacific coast of Ecuador. The village is also the center of the Machililla national park. Encompassing 55,095 hectares, its ecosystem is dry tropical forest – unique in the world. The park extends offshore to encompass islands, including enchanting Isla de la Plata, as well as the adjacent ocean waters and coastline. Machalilla National Park is located in the Manabi province, on the southern coast of Ecuador. The marine environment is characterized and defined by the diverse ocean currents that mix here – the warm waters of El Niño, the cold Humbolt current and the Equatorial cross current. This conflux of currents gives rise to a unique ecosystem with high biodiversity.
