What I did
... it was time to go to Salango, for a trip to Isla Salago. Here many local birds are having their base for the daily hunt for fish plus kinder garden and 'aviation center' for the youngest.
Salango, a small fishermen town with a big fish-fabric. It was a 10-minutes drive to the north. Aurelio, the owner of our hostel brought us here with his car so we did not have to take a bus or tuk-tuk
Surrounded by Pelicanos, Fregats and some other birds (whose names we already forgot) were diving deep for their food . During our boat trip, we really came close by all kind of wildlife that you almost could touch it.
All around the island we got to view those fantastic places and finally ended up snorkeling at the golden beach! As we are used to the water temperatures here, we just jumped in the water directly refreshing ourselves. Then we got the masks and snorkels and of we went exploring the unexpected! Fun though, as Jorgen did not shave his beard for a few days, and so the mask did not fit so well and ended up half of the time clearing the mask. But nevertheless we saw some beautiful water life near the coast..
Before we knew it, time was up so we had to got back to the boat and went ashore again! It was a really nice experience especially because we were only the two of us so we had all for ourselves! Very luxurious indeed, and much preferred to the royal snorkeling yachts that arrive from Puerto Lopez.
After all te experience we got to Puerto Lopez to enjoy some banana bread, do some shopping and ask about the bus options to Canoa - our next destination. Fortunately we had not booked the tickets yet - probably the inner guts telling us that we would stay more days in lovely Las Tunas!!
