Puerto Bolivar:
Jambelí | Isla del Amor | Playas Bravita | Costa Rica | Accommodation | Write a review about Puerto Bolivar

Located some 7 km from Machala this port is the largest area for south coast banana and shrimp exportation in Ecuador. The port itself is protected by mangroves and during the day makes a pleasant waterfront detour with motorized boat services available for crossing to the Jambeli beaches which are the locals favorite vacation spot from Machala bustling town center. Boats leave 09:00, 12:00, 15:00 and 17:00 returning one hour later. Departures are more often on weekends ($2 per person), or US$10.00 for a boat with up to 18 people anytime.

The Waterfront area houses various restaurants infamous for fresh quality fish, lobster and shrimps form various balcony positions as you watch a host of seabirds and fishing boats glide quietly by.

Isla del Amor, is another site worth exploring with a rich bird life and huge mangroves (US$10.00 per boat). Or just rent a canoe for an hour to explore the surrounding channels (Insect repellent is a must).

Other excursions can be made to nearby beaches, such as Playas Bravita (35 minutes), or to Costa Rica (2 hours). Take always your passport because a military base is crossed by on the way. A boat to Costa Rica for the whole day is about US$80 (up to 14 people).
