Ecuador Travel
Pacific Coast

Pacific Coast

From beaches covered with palm trees and gigantic cliffs that rise over deep caverns, to the green forests of Mangle or the dry tropical forests, the 1,600 km (1,000 miles) of beaches become endless on the Coast of Ecuador.

Bathed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean and with a warm tropical climate throughout the year, this region is recognized by fans of water sports, in particular by surfers, and by those who love the beach and nature.

In the depth of the territory away from the beaches are, in turn, picturesque towns known for their local cuisine and crafts. The thriving city of Guayaquil, the historical sites and kilometers of cocoa plantations, bananas, palm trees and rice, complement the richness of the coast whose endless golden sunsets burst capriciously.
