Puerto López Spanish classes on the coast

Puerto López is an authentic fishing village located in the Machalilla National Park at the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is famous for its local culinary specialities as well as for its cultural and natural attractions.

You can enjoy the humpback whales watching (Megaptera novaeangliae) and their spectacular dance in Puerto Lopez. During the annual migration which lasts from June to September in Ecuador the whales travel to the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean where they breed and give birth. That´s why Puerto Lopez has been named as a Whale Sanctuary. The temperature varies between 25 – 30 degrees celcius.
