Great name for a town.
Last stop on the Ecuador border before Colombia. Small fishing town in tropical forest along the shoreline of the Pacific.
Island Girl must like it here as she usually roosts in this region on her way north. Could be that it is just the result of flying north through the central valley but she always seems to pop out here and roost near the ocean.
She flew another 99 km (62 miles) taking it a bit easy on this day.
She did cross the equator, leaving the southern hemisphere behind yet again on her journey.
Roosting was in the rain forest only 7 km (4 miles) from the Pacific. She could no doubt see it again as she flew into the area, maybe even hearing it as she prepared to sleep.
She was just 22 km (14 miles) due east of Esmeraldas and closing in on the coast of Colombia.
