The friendly Bottlenose Dolphins
This wonderful island with an extension of 919 km2 is located in the estuary of the gulf of Guayaquil, province of Guayas. It is on the edge of the Estero Salado a branch of sea water that extends 80 km in northeast direction to Guayaquil. Puná is the third largest island of Ecuador after Isabella and Santa Cruz islands in the Galápagos.
Originated by the accumulations of recent materials and an older nucleus of volcanic rock, Puná is just 3 km from the continent in its closest part (Posorja). The island has a dry tropical climate influenced by the Humboldt Current. Fishing, agriculture, aquaculture and recently tourism are main activities. Surrounded by wonderful mangroves and plenty of coastal and marine birds, you cannot miss this Island after watching the graceful bottlenose dolphins.
This trip is just for one day, but is good enough to enjoy the spectacular show they bring us every single year in a row.
