Montañita has become the must visit location when coming to Ecuador and South America.. A Mecca for international travellers and holidaying Ecuadorians alike; famous for its surf breaks, parties , chilled vibes and quirky charms.
Montañita is Magic! You can relax and sunbathe watching the amazing tricks of the pro surfers at the world famous surf break called “The Point”. Or of course you can have some real fun and try out surfing yourself! (link to surfing)
Everywhere are little shops and restaurants true to the traditional bamboo tiki building style, where you can sample beautiful fresh foods or sip a delicious cocktail. Travelling artisans sell beautiful hand crafted jewellery and souvenirs and street performers do some crazy and impressive shows.
For those who like to be active there are tonnes of sport opportunities, horse riding, a jungle canopy attraction and nearby excellent diving and snorkelling, fun day trips and in the right season you can see the incredible humpback whales.
But it’s during the night that Montañita comes alive! The best nightlife in Ecuador is right here. Choose from live Latin bands, beach bonfires, reggae parties, clubs, electronica events and of course the famous “cocktail alley”.
