About your excursion
Thousands of countless types of plants, insects, colorful birds, monkeys, and other wildlife make their home in the rainforests, cloud forests, tropical dry forests, and other ecosystems that occur in Ecuador. One such ecosystem is the mangrove forest and one of the best places to experience this important habitat is at the Manglares-Churute Ecological Reserve just an hour away drive from Hacienda La Danesa.
The mangroves at Churute are a haven for picturesque egrets, herons, ibis, and other waterbirds, screeching flocks of parakeets, troops of Howler Monkeys, Boa Constrictors, and other tropical wildlife. See exotic, tropical animals and learn about the essential importance of these mangroves for commercial fishing on a day excursion to this exciting site. Travel by car and boat makes this an easy eco-adventure for guests of all ages on a trip to Ecuador, some of whom see crocodiles!
