"A busy and dusty fishing village" Top 5 Page for this destination Puerto López by CaptainAmerica

Puerto López Travel Guide: 36 reviews and 139 photos

Puerto Lopez is a small but busy fishing village on the La Libertad-Jipijapa bus line. The only reason why tourists stop here is that this is the nearest town to Parque Nacional Machalilla.
You can watch the fishermen come back to the beach every morning but except that, there is not much to see in Puerto Lopez. You can however taste the flavour of a real fishing village, without hords of tourists, and the beach is nice with all the little and colourfull fishing boats.

    Sounds to be a lovely little place to stop in for a couple of days!Too bad you couldn't go to the Machalilla National Park!

    Exactly the kind of place I am looking for ! No tourist, just locals ! Your first picture is wonderful (others too, but this one even more). Too bad that since then you have broken your camera !

    I like the idea of cooking for yourself, as long as you dont have to wash up afterwards!!

    They serve "Coke" at Villa Colombia?! What a concept! ;-) Great images of this quaint town. Sounds like a nice discovery! So if we go to Maillekeul's page, will he tell us about the "stupid accident?" You're keeping us in suspense!! ;-))
