Machalilla National Park has an extension of 55,092 hectares distributed between the continental zone
and the marine zone. It
occupies a great part of the western hydrographic system of the Chongon-Colonche mountain range which produces micro climatic changes unique to this place, without mentioning the spectacular cliffs on the coast line.
Machalilla’s dry forest is one of the most interesting forests in the world due to its high degree of endemism containing up to twenty percent of endemic species. The most famous touristic sites are the 'Isla de la Plata' and the white-sand pristine beach of 'Los Frailes'.
