Ecuador loves life, and life overflows by its mountains, its rivers, its beaches, its forests and its cities. The Ecuadorian Pacific Coast is a sample of this statement, it offers to the tourist all kinds of attractions that made the region and the country to become a destination reference.
Urban and cultural centres
An unmissable stop in the region is Guayaquil. The most populous city in Ecuador is a commercial and cultural focus, and inside its streets, its architecture and parks you will feel the heartbeat of the community.But there are other interesting urban points in the region:
- Santo Domingo, and its rich environment of forests and biodiversity
- Machala, with its history and its monuments.
- Manta, with their incomparable beaches
But wait a minute, did you say beaches?
The beaches are one of the greatest attractions in Ecuador and its Pacific Coast justifies its reputation. Its extensive beaches of fine and white sand receive every year thousands of tourists, which can lie back and enjoy the sun, swim in the warm waters of the Pacific or walk through the endless shores, between the different species of coastal birds. Thus, Manta is a good exponent, but Salinasis another captive centre to enjoy the Ecuadorian beaches.
For the eco tourist and the nature lover, the region has some focus of interest, such as the Manglares Churute National Park (how many opportunities will you have in your life of travelling through mangroves and discover their flora and fauna?) or Machalilla. Over there, you will not only find almost 500 native animal species, but you can also dive into the only coral reef found in this Costa, or watch the humpback whales on their migration.
With so many attractions, it is hoped that the hotel infrastructure is well developed. And that is true: the hotel offers are first quality, with hotels equipped with all possible comforts, and very close or well communicated with the points of interest in the region.
