La Ruta del Sol
I grew up doing this beautiful panoramic road trip and love every bit of it....
Most people who travel through Ecuador go to Galapagos and the highlands but the coast is one of our best kept secrets.
This road is must for someone wanting to explore untouched fishing towns and real local culture and the additional spiced up flavor of Montanita a surfer's hippie oassis of fun and mingling.
During this road trip starting from Manta we stoped in a view point of Salando island near Piqueros hostal and then took a relaxing bath in the thermal waters of Agua Blanca where the community preserves its history and beauty.
That night was fun partying with the local surfers in Montanita and in the next days we went to the beach town of Salinas.
Here are my pic's....
