Full day to Ecological Reserve Churute Mangrove and Cocoa Farm Visit
The guide will pick up you in the lobby of the hotel ( Hotel pick up inside the Urban perimeter of Guayaquil) We will go to the Churute Ecological Reserve where we will take a canoe ride observing the flora and fauna of the place, after that we will go to the howler monkeys trail, where we will take a short walk until we can observe the monkeys that inhabit the area. After this walk we will go to the Cacao y Mango farm where we will have lunch and learn about the process of making chocolate. In Churute Mangroves, three different ecosystems converge in relatively small spaces. On the one hand, there is the characteristic red mangrove, whose roots make their way and give the feeling that they are advancing in the estuaries. Hence the name with which the inhabitants of the area know it: the walking mangrove.
The reserve is a refuge for many species of fauna, some of them threatened, such as the canclón, a water bird that lives in the lagoon of the same name, and the crocodile of the coast, which has already disappeared in other areas of the coast. Due to the diversity and great extension of aquatic environments that the reserve protects, in the year 1990 it was declared a Ramsar site, an international recognition for wetlands of great importance.
