Montinita - party central for coastal Ecuador
Sep 26, 2007
We had some fiercly competitive nights out, in no small part due to the strong coctails we started out with!
We had heard alot of good shtuff about Montinita on our travels, even as far down as Cusco, so we were expecting alot from this little beach town, and it didnīt disappoint. It offered a good mix of surf and party thats for sure! In the first few days, waves were plentyful, and it was the weekend too, so things were kicking off in the town. Its a small town, full of hostels and bars, and was a magnet for gringos and locals alike. We surfed most mornings early on the reef (which my feet wonīt thank me for at all), and had a lazy session on a beach break up the road in the evenings. It was good crack with the 4 of us out, and the banter in the water was cut throat! We got this hostel, and we all had seperate rooms, big beds with even our own hammocks to laze in during the day. Very chilled out place, and scenic to boot.
