The Mangrove

Mangrove is a kind of very special vegetation, typical from Tumbes’ region. This solid vegetation, which is called “the dried tropical forest”, is found in the sea and in rivers. Moreover, it is the shelter of an important quantity of fishes and shellfishes, due to the mix of brine and soft water. As a consequence, you can also observe the presence of caimans or an enormous number of bird species, along the canals and islets formed by this half-aquatic vegetation. Landscapes are very impressive, mainly for the thick fog resulting from the evaporation of stagnant water.
