    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.

    ... of Guayaquil. Translated as "little hill", it became famous very slowly, decades ago, as a place only for surfing, with only a few rustic fishermen houses and one or two surfers tent on summer time. Today, it's a popular destination for surfers from around the world and considered one of the best beaches in Ecuador's south coast. The layout of Montañita is a grid of small streets crowded with shops and restaurants, and ...

    ... lifestyle coming in. A couple of people were like me; they had a desire to get healthier, but it was still debatable what we were willing to do to get there. Some people (I'm looking at you Mara, you know I love you girl) thought everything was DEE-Lisicious from the start. Others (can I get an amen Brenda and Juan) were not feeling all of the meals at first. So there were cheerleaders and skeptics, which made ...

    ... 30% of the local children attend any school at all. Most of them quit school between 3rd and 5th grade. One of the main reasons the children don't go to school is that a uniform is required for school and the parents can't afford to buy one. Of the very small percent of children who continue past 5th grade it is a very small number who actually get the equivalent of a high school education, and even more rare - the one who continues to ...

This meant I had to find somewhere to wait in Manta, and find somewhere to wait in Quito. The bus terminal where I arrived in Manta wasn't in the best of areas and it seemed nobody spoke a word of English. My Spanish is getting there, but ...
