Coast

Anyone who wants to explore Ecuador should discover beautiful 2,000 kilometer coastline.

Ecuador's coast is a composition of assets such as temperate waters, stunning white sandy beaches offering busy seaside activities, whale-watching and snorkeling and beautiful green mangrove forests.

In search of relaxing atmosphere visit quiet fishing villages to see the real fishermen’s life. The coastline of Ecuador plays a big role in Ecuador's economy, delivering tons of seafood daily. There are four distinct provinces that make up Ecuador's coastal region: Esmeraldas, Manabi, Guayas, and El Oro. Look out for the perks like the village called Monte Cristi - home of the famous straw hat, today called “Panama hat” or the fishing village of Puerto Lopez – the gateway to Isla de la Plata, an island giving you the initial taster of Galapagos.
