Coast life and marine variety
The area surrounding the Pacific Coast is rife with activities to do and things to visit. With its link to the Pacific Ocean, whale-watching is one of the main attractions of the area as it is a key mating area for humpback whales.
Isla de la Planta is an uninhabited island that is home to a multitude of marine birds, many of which can only be found here. The blue-footed boobies, waved albatrosses and frigate birds are just a few of the animals found here. Manta rays and sea lions crowd the waters surrounding the island. The coral reef that circles the island is stunning and it is possible to snorkel and in some parts dive around Isla de la Planta to admire these up close.
The Pacific Coast is considered the go-to place for lovers of fish and seafood thanks to its two thousand kilometres of coastline. Ceviche is the main and most popular dish served here. Fish soups and curries are also incredibly popular dishes and are a must-try.
