A huge stone surfer welcomes travelers who decide to visit Montañita, a small town on the Ecuadorian Pacific coast. This beach is very famous worldwide because of the party atmosphere it offers and its huge waves. For these reasons, it receives visitors from all over the world.

Argentine, Chilean, and Colombian dialects mingle with those of travelers from other countries who do not speak Spanish.

The hotel option in Montañita is very varied, you can find rooms from USD 5 to USD 40 depending on the season in which you travel.

But if something really draws attention in this place - besides the waves - it's your nightlife.

At night this beach -located in the province of Santa Elena- shows its best face to tourists who can choose between a wide range of bars and nightclubs to spend the night.

Between 9 and 10 pm the weather starts to turn on in the town, tourists are ordered at the exit of the boardwalk to choose which will be the best alternative to have fun or eat something before starting the party.

Review Information

Galapagos Islands

Extraordinary flora and fauna, a place you must visit...!

Galapagos Islands are worldwide known for their wide biodiversity and for being the point from where Charles Darwin developed the theory of evolution.We present you 5 facts that perhaps you didn't know about the Enchanted Islands.

The term "Enchanted islands" first appeared on a map in 1589.Sailors nicknamed thus to the Galapagos Islands, by referring to these "appeared and disappeared", since due to the sea currents strong, access to the Islands was limited at certain times of the year. The nickname transcended over the years and today is still saying that the Islands are "delighted", but referring now to the great biodiversity of flora and fauna.

The Galapagos marine iguana, is the only species of reptile in the world that has managed to adapt to life under water.

The Islands are named for the giant tortoises that live there (the Galapagos word meaning turtle). This species can reach up to 16 hours a day to sleep and mainly feeds on cacti that grow there.

In keeping with the turtles, originally there were 15 species of giant tortoises in the Galapagos, unfortunately 5 of them are completely extinct, so there are only 10. The main threat of the turtles is the human being, who for years has been dedicated to hunting them for their meat and oil.

The Galapagos Islands were part of the second world war! During this war, the Government of Ecuador allowed the United States Government build a runway with strategic aims in the Islands.When the war ended, the Americans abandoned the place. That track currently serves as the main airport of the Islands, which welcomes the year thousands of passengers.
