The fish market in the heart of Puerto Ayora provides a great spectacle of animals, birds, reptiles and local people interacting with each other. The market is active all day, so make sure you drop by as you pass through the town toward the harbour.
Great spot to view fish cleaning and the very hungry sea lions, pelicans and other local birds. The women who work there were happy to explain the available fish and to share the scraps with the locals (sea lions, birds, etc.). Worth the stop.
This fish market is tiny, but you don't go to see the fish. You go to see the non-paying customers: the sea lion, pelicans and frigate birds who hang around to help themselves to scraps and don't mind your company at all.
