MANGLECITO BEACH
SAN CRISTÓBAL ISLAND


Manglecito consists of two visiting areas: the mangrove area and the beach area.

The mangrove area provides a perfect location for interpretation and observation of marine birds, whereas the beach area is used as a solely recreational area.

The vegetation characteristic of this zone is the Sesubium edmonstonei and the button mangrove. There is a lagoon here where it is common to see Galapagos ducks, among other endemic and native species. The presence of a rocky reef on one side of the island produces waves that are ideal for surfing.

To access this site you must arrange for guided excursions with local tour operators.
