Aguas Blancas in Machalilla National Park
Aguas Blancas is a small community inside the Machalilla National Park which is located in the central coast of Ecuador next to the ocean tourist attraction of Puero Lopez and Isla de la Plata. Aguas Blancas is 10 minutes north of Puerto Lopez just before the famous Playa de los Frailes and is on the right side of the road as you go north.
This community depends on local tourism which helps them minimize their dependence on the natural resources of the Machalilla National Park. If you are a birder this is a must stop place to get a bag full of Tumbesian Endemics that thrive in the dry forests of the National Park.
Here are some photos of Endemic birds:
