    Fue una experiencia única poder observar los delfines tan cerca alrededor de nosotros en su estado natural es realmente memorable, luego nos llevaron hacer chocolate a una Hacienda llamada el Castillo donde nos mostraron con detalles como se elabora el chocolate de manera orgánica y saludable fue grato poder compartir con mi familia de esta experiencia gracias Wendy y Yamil por estos lindos momentos que nos hicieron pasar por cierto no se olviden de probar los patacones y el rico jugo de cacao 👌

    Our guides (Yamil and Wendy) were excellent - professional and very knowledgeable. We learned about the mangroves and saw bottle nose dolphins, roseate spoonbills, white ibis, little blue herons, the magnificent frigate bird colony, and more. Very interesting to see the local crab fishery and catch. And the tour of the cacao plantation was very interesting with some delicious surprise treats. Definitely recommend this tour!

    We booked the tour to the Churute Mangrove but Yamil wrote before to say that because of the heavy rains it could be difficult to get there. So we choose the tour to Puerto del Morro with its birds and dolphins. It was so peaceful to ride on this mangrove. Than we went to cocoa farm and factory to see how the cocoa is produced and how they change it in chocolate. Very interesting if you are a chocolate lover. Which we liked the most was the fact that Viasam Tours work with the locals regarding to show the tourists how these people work and to give them options to work with tourism when they can not use their boats to fish for example. Thank you so much Yamil for this wonderful day.

    It was a very long drive to the port, we only saw a couple of dolphins fins. The boat trip was long with a few nice colored birds. They were lovely. They tour said lunch was included. I got a cup of coffee.

    It was changed and I wasn't notified until I met the tour guide. I didn't go to Puerto del Morro or see the Mangroves or dolphins. The Cacao portion was so-so. I wouldn't recommend this tour.

    El inició en fue en una hacienda cacaotera y productora de chocolate donde pude observar el proceso de transformación del grano de cacao hasta convertirse en chocolate con el proceso explicado de forma excelente por parte de Yamil, un guía amable y lleno de experiencia, con un don de gente sobresaliente, conocí más sobre la exportación y la historia del cacao en Ecuador. Rodeados por paisaje paradisiaco lleno de vegetación ecléctica, en la experiencia estuve acompañado por una hermosa pareja de esposos Daniel y Francisca (EUA e Inglesa respectivamente) el proceso fue explicado en inglés de manera clara, educativo en el cual se acompañó con unos piqueos deliciosos a base de plátanos y un café de grano, espectaculares! Luego nos dirigimos a visitar los manglares en Puerto el Morro y la observación de los delfines, hermosas criaturas, que parecían realizar actos y movimientos audaces para nosotros, se disfrutó de manera espectacular como se acercaban al bote!!! Un encuentro cercano inolvidable!!! Cerrando el paseo degustándolo de la mejor comida del sector en Altamente recomendable, una impresionante experiencia... 100/100
