Itinerary Overview

After one month in Quito, capital of Ecuador, I need to see the ocean and have a better weather than in Quito. So, I decided to discover the Ecuadorian Coast, who has really beautiful beaches, and small city where you can just enjoy the beach and talk with all the people to learn more about the Ecuadorian culture. 

  • Day trip: Parque Machalilla
    One of the most beautiful beach of Equator
  • Day trip: Salango
    Beautiful natural and desertic beach
  • Day trip: San Lorenzo
    Beach time with possibilities to explore paths

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Sleeping in San Lorenzo just for a night to enjoy the sunset.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    For Salango, you don't need more than an half day. Take your suncream, a hat and enjoy your days !

  • Transportation Tips?

    I advise you to take a night bus from Quito to Puerto Lopez because it's 10 hours of travel, like that you will not lost a day in a bus.
