Photo journey along the Coastal region of Ecuador.

I have spent most of my life spending the holidays at the beach and exploring the Coastal region of Ecuador. The tropical weather, the gastronomy, friendly people, vibrant city and beach life together with spectacular natural landscapes make the Coastal region of Ecuador so special. It makes me want to come back as often as possible.

How to get there:

You can get there by bus which is cheaper but due to the weather, distances and safety in this region, I would suggest you book a flight. The “Simon Bolivar International Airport” in Guayaquil is just 10 minutes north of the city centre. If you arrive by bus during the day you can easily walk to the city or if it is already dark take a safe taxi or from there take the next bus.

Some areas can be a bit dangerous, so please take care of your camera and other valuables and avoid going out at night alone.

The Coastal region of Ecuador has 4 provinces and some of the activities you can enjoy include whalewatching in Isla de la Plata, relaxing or surfing at Montanita, partying and deep-sea fishing at Salinas and much much more.

If you want more in-depth information and also a guide that you can bring along during your trip, I recommend the travel guide Lonely Planet Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands, it is a great source of information and tips, maps and all you need if you plan on visiting Ecuador.
