  • Description


    Hi! My name is Alegria I'm a Naturalist Guide in the Machalilla National Park. I live with my family, Pamela 19 and Andres 16; a cat and two dogs . 😍
    Puerto Lopez, where we live, is a beautiful bay and artisanal fishermen's village. It is surrounded by the Machalilla National Park and Cantagallo Marine Reserve; a great place for snorkeling, whale-watching and hiking in the dry and humid forests.
    Our house is by the beach and beside the river. We planted a small mangroove forest where there are crabs, iguanas and night herons. We like to live in armony with nature so in our place we have kept the native vegetation to allow different species to come. One of my passions are birds, so the garden is planned to be bird-friendly.
    To be consistent with the environment we re-use the water from the shower and sink for the garden, do composting, recicle what is posible and specially try not to produce much plastic garbage.
    To help us in our economy we have an airbnb rental.

    Puerto Lopez is an artisanal fishermen's village where, in the last 20 years the turism has developed thanks to the Machalilla National Park. It's a quiet and safe town where you will meet friendly people.
    If you like nature, this is the perfect place. In this area you can find humid and tropical dry forests, incredible beaches and reefs for snorkeling. An island with blue-footed boobies and frigatebirds breeding. Also dolphins and the amazing Humpback Whales (June thru October).
    Beside all these there are communities inside the park that you can visit and an arqueological site from the Manteño culture.
    You will surely enjoy your stay in Puerto Lopez.

    The project I have in the moment is to turn my natural garden into a bird-friendly one, so I plan to prepare two areas where I can have fresh and salt water pools; two diferent habitats for birds.
    I will also need help in cleaning, maintainance like painting, taking care of the garden and building or repairing small stuff like fences, compost or recycables storage areas.
    As we are working and kids at school we may also need sometimes help with the rental, this is, preparing the place or receiving the guest.
    Some hours of english classes, could also be possible, for the kids.
