Discover a green paradise - El Pital Jul 04, 2009
El Pital is small rural community which developed and ecotourism project. It's located in Puerto Lopez between the dry and rain forest. The average temperature is 17C - 24C

What you can do there?

There are 3 trails where you can take walks or horse rides. The excursions can last for 2 - 8hrs.

The longest and most known one is named "Bola de Oro" (Golden Ball). According to the legend, there were visitors who discovered a treasure here.

At El Pital you will find exuberant fauna (bromeliads, tagua - vegetal ivory tree, medicinal plants among others) and diverse fauna. There's also the possibility of agrotrourism.

How to get there?

From Puerto Lopez, you have to take the secondary road that runs bewtween Puerto Lopez and Guales until you reach 12km. I recommend to drive a 4 x 4 vehicle. The trip shouldn't take longer than 40min.

I can't say much about prices and services there, since when we went there nobody was working, hehehe. But I just found that it's possible to overnight there.

If you decide to go there, be sure to wear comfy shoes, light clothes and bring your repellent with you.
