Montanita

Welcome to Montanita! Even though this Santa Elena destination might not appear at the top of every traveler's wish list, you'll find plenty of vacation magic here.

Montanita Vacation Packages

It can be found roughly 190 miles from Quito, the country's capital.

When the weather is warm, pack up the kids and plenty of sunscreen and drive to General Villamil Beach, 60 miles to the southeast of Montanita, or Puerto Cayo Beach, 35 miles to the north.

Although you may be only visiting for the day, it's recommended that you visit Montanita Church and Montanita Point.

For travelers who think they've seen all of Montanita, Salango is another great choice. Roughly 18 miles to the north, it's where you will discover Machalilla National Park Museum and Puerto Lopez Beach.

Manta is 60 miles north from Montanita. This area hotspot is home to a whole lot of things to see, like Manabí Fisherman Statue, Central Bank Museum and Manta Harbor. Manta Port and Museo del Banco Central are other places that are worth a visit.

Get a taste of the various flavors of Santa Elena by tasting its most popular food and drinks.

Vacationers are sure to note a lot of coconut and rice, two of the most popular regional ingredients.

Llapingachos (cheese and potato patties) and encocados (fish cooked in coconut milk) are two well-known meals you might like to order.

Those who always have some room for dessert can order come y bebe (drinkable fruit salad).

Quench your thirst with a pint of refreshing beer. Club Premium Roja is a good choice.

If you don't want to drink alcohol, why not have some coffee?

For something stronger, order a little Ron San Miguel and propose a toast to your courteous hosts.

Genuine travel encompasses so much more than simply seeing the sights. It's also about involving yourself in the stories and conversations of a place. Your days here will become richer if you endeavor to practice a few useful expressions and greetings in Spanish. ¡Salud! is how you say cheers/good health! in Spanish. ¡Buena suerte! (good luck) is good to practice as well.

The 10th of August is the day of the year when everybody, old and young, will celebrate Independence Day. You're sure to find plenty of festivities taking place if you are vacationing at that time.

We all wish our vacations went on forever. However, you'll have to bid "Adiós" to Montanita sooner or later. At least once you return home you'll have plenty of marvelous stories to tell!

If you're searching for the closest airport, it is approximately 65 miles to the east.
