The lively beach town of Montañita is a mecca for surfers, hippies and partygoers, and has grown quite the reputation among foreigners. About 3.5 hours north of Guayaquil and a little over an hour south of Puerto López along the Ruta del Sol, Montañita is one of the few Ecuadorian beach towns with a great selection of international restaurants and hostels for all budgets and indeed at times you may forget you’re in Ecuador, such is the international vibe of the town.
