The Beach Life

A travel blog entry by viajerillo

I think I've seen Monta˝ita now. It was exciting when we arrived, no doubt. It was great to see the beach again, and the deep Pacific blue, but it's time I got a moving. This is a surf town and a party town. For me this trip is not about either. I have beaches back home, I grew up on the beach for the best part of my childhood. I'm not adverse to a …

I love Montanita!

A travel blog entry by colmandliz


I think we loved Montanita so much that we subconsciously left all of our travel documents behind in the hostel safe on purpose so that we'd have to go back and stay another night!

Total wipe out!

Whilst in Puerto Lopez I realised that my travel pace had been quite frantic
so far, which was great but I felt I needed a few days to chill. So following my adventures in Puerto Lopez, I headed an hour down the coast to small hippy/surf/party beach town called Montanita ( abit like Byron Bay for those who┤ve been). To be honest this will be …

Hippy holiday

A travel blog entry by julesjb

Upon arrival in Montanita it was raining and although I did get some sunshine that afternoon it pretty much set a trend for the rest of my stay there. I managed to find the hostel recommended by the english guy Pete, I had met in Panama city - but little did I realise it was in the middle of party central. Montanita is situated on the Pacific …

Ups & downs in Montanita

A travel blog entry by liudogger


man oh man, what a day....where to even begin. I guess I┤ll start from where I left off yesterday. After checking out of my hostel in Puerto Lopez yesterday, I started off for the bus stop and walked past my 2 Danish friends (Mia y Julie) at the internet bar. They decided last minute that they wanted to go along, so I caught up on some email while …

    Apart from its location I have no complaints with Papaya. The double rooms are MORE than adequate and the private bathrooms have hot, high-pressure water mains. Beds have mosquito nets, there are desks, shelves and a floor fan for all your needs. At 8 to 10 dollars a night it's a bit exxy but you won't find anything all-inclusive (breakfast, hot water, wifi, etc) for cheaper around town. The one downfall is that the music on Montanita's streets is always on full volume until about 3 in the morning, even on a Monday, so take earplugs or be prepared to pay a little more for somewhere quieter down the beach.
