Welcome to Parque Nacional Machalilla


Aside from rare exotic species, the park is also home to an important archaeological site that dates from the Manta period – beginning around AD 500 and lasting until the Spanish conquest. There are also remains of the much older Machalilla and Chorrera cultures, dating from about 800 BC to 500 BC, and of the Salango culture from 3000 BC.
