    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.

They still maintain that they definitely clicked the 9th on the website and that the computer system ****** it up but there not fooling anyone here. There was about 20minutes until the gate closed and the lads had the wrong tickets. We thought we were up **** creek but the ...

Francisco and our English guide did reinactent of the legend of the dwarf. Also I got a love poem for. Francisco. Very funny. The tour group were very nice and took me back to Bahai. The tour cost only $10 with the myself $20. Very worth while the ...

    ... Arriving at 6pm (our bus took 3 hours from Guayaquil) was perfect to just dump our bags and head out for some food. The centre is laid out across 2-3 blocks with the infamous cocktail alley of drink shacks and stalls taking you towards the beach. The town was incredibly expensive for food and drink but we stumbled across an absolute gem, Rastapan. This shack was run by hippies blasting out Bob Marley and they only made ...

    ... which I completely understood. It was just that my old knees and back don't bounce anymore! After about 15 minutes of trying on the sand, it was into the water! My second attempt in the was probably my best. I actually managed to ride it for a few seconds. After that it got progressively worse for me. My knees stopped cooperating all together. Finally I gave up trying to do it right and just rode it like a wake board. It wasn't really surfing, but I ...
