Sun, Surf, Alcohol and RastaPans?

A travel blog entry by ashhigh


... 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 ...

A Different Rhythm of Life

When it got a bit later we went back up the hill to our hostel and witnessed ...

Guayaquil -> Montanita

We got ready and went off to check out the old town in the daylight then grabbed some breakfast before heading to the bus station to get the bus to Montanita (3 hrs) a small surf town on the coast.

We arrived and found a hostel. Bit tricky here as most are fully booked over the weekends so we will have to change tomorrow night. As we were starving by this point we set off to ...
