Puerto Lopez is a famous place to see Humpback Whales. We went out on a tour boat which leave daily at about 10am and cost $20 per person. Apart from the whales you can also see Blue-footed Boobies and I saw possible Swallow-tailed Gulls. For birds, a trip to Isla de la Plata would probably be more productive. A direct bus leaves for Puerto Lopez from Quito from the Reina del Camino terminal near Puente de las Huambras at 8pm, arriving about 6am. Puerto Lopez has many places to eat and stay (Sol Inn - $4 for domitory, $6 for a single) and also a few places to do internet. I saw 13 species including 2 lifers
