Puerto Villamil Things to Do: 12 reviews and 50 photos
The boardwalk and path to Crianza de Tortugas begins just west of Puerto Villamil. The boardwalk goes over a wetland area with several lagoons where you can see flamingos and many other birds, among others Black-necked Stilt, Moorhen and White-cheeked Pintail. The lagoons are bordered with mangrove vegetation. Further north the boardwalk continues as a path through green vegetation (it is open area for a while). The trees are beautiful with curvy stems. One of the tree species you can see here is the Manchineel tree, which is a native tree to Galapagos Islands. It has got poisonous fruits that can only be eaten by the giant tortoise.
The trail to Crianza de Tortugas is not long, only a bit over 1km.
