The Humedales, or â€śwetlands,â€ť are a canâ€™t-miss for those staying a couple days in Puerto Villamil. The humedales consist of a good trail through mangroves, pools, beaches and rocky shores. Itâ€™s well worth a visit, as many different types of birds nest there. The trail also ends up at Isabelaâ€™s old cementery, which is interesting because some of the earliest colonists are buried there. Youâ€™ll also find the Wall of Tears there.
Along the trail youâ€™ll find Orchilla Hill, which is an easy climb. From the top there is a nice view of town and Isabelaâ€™s volcanoes. Also look for â€śLa Playita,â€ť a small, secluded beach. The park has released some giant tortoises into the wild near here, so keep an eye open for them, too!
There is a picnic area popular with locals, but donâ€™t plop down just anywhere in respect for the nesting birds.
