About Coastal Ecuador Spans Almost 1,400 Miles
Michael Sager Podcast - Coastal Ecuador spans almost 1,400 miles
Ecuador’s Pacific Coast stretches from Esmeraldas in the north to Machala in the south and spans almost 1,400 miles. Along the way, you’ll find everything from burgeoning coastal resorts, tiny fishing, craft, and farming villages, and the country’s largest city, Guayaquil. The weather is tropical, and so is the laid-back and slow-moving attitude of the people.
Much of Ecuador’s most desirable beachfront real estate lies between the coastal resort city of Salinas and the Caribbean-style town of Esmeraldas.
Along this stretch of coast, you’ll find rocky cliffs, pristine beaches, secluded coves, and magnificent vistas. The booming port city of Manta divides the coast roughly into northern and southern sections.
On the southern coast, the resorts of Playas and Salinas share the distinction of being the closest beach towns to an international airport at Guayaquil. Both feature safe beaches, high-rise condos, good restaurants, and lively nightlife.
