Puerto L贸pez is the closest village to the Machalilla National Park. The park headquarter is one block behind the plaza in Puerto L贸pez and also features a small museum. The entrance is free of charge as of 2012 (see Los Frailes below).
The serene Playa Los Frailes is located 10Km north of Puerto Lopez inside Machalilla National Park. You can take a Moto-taxi there for around $6 round-trip or simply hop on a northbound bus and ask to be dropped off at Los Frailes (50 centavos one way). As of 2012, entry is free of charge (apparently it used to be rather expensive; Lonely Planet and other popular guides are outdated on this subject).
