Free Lance Tour Guide/ Translator in Manta and Sorroundings.

I can tour the people who arrive in the Cruise Ships in Manta to enjoy a day out walking in San Lorenzo's Cloud Forest and the beautiful town of Montecristi.

sunny 28 °C

My name is Annia Larkins I have duel nationality British and Ecuadorian. This is way English is my first language and my home town in Manta Ecuador.

I feel very priveleged to live here...

Manta is a beautiful city with a prosperous port and lovely beaches in town and near by.
I love nature so I know the names of many native fauna and the history of the places that I visit.

From Manta 20 minutes away there is an incredible Cloud Forest called El Bosque de Pacoche... I have done this hike many time and know what hours is best to spot the howler monkeys and after the hike the white sandy beach in Cabo San Lorenzo has the best little local restaurants for the very fresh sea food and views.

That is one tour and the other is going around the center town of Manta visiting the pedestrian streets and old houses like Cacebi and then going to Montecristi that is where they make Panama hats and you also have the museam of Eloy Alfaro with great views from there.
It is a great place to but local handy crafts.
I can also book different tours on request and make day trips to Puerto Cayo and Sta Marianita..

I have already taken groups that arrive in the Cruise Ships to do the hike in San Lorenzo and the beautiful town of Montecristi.
I am available for this season of Cruise Ships 2012 and 2013 coming in you may email me at [email protected]


Hi Annia,
You were recommended to us from a cruise critic member for a trip into the jungle to see howler monkeys.
We are arriving on cruise ship Celebrity Infinity 7am 19th March & would like to organise a tour with you for the 4 of us. The info below is what we were given...
Manta day trip, particularly if you are young and/or fit, an option is a jeep ride and hike in el Aromo jungle to see howler monkeys & other wildlife. Annia Larkins can take max 4 passengers for $40 per person for a 5 hour tour. She would meet them at the exit of the port. There was a reference to Annia on one of the boards and she replied to me promptly.
Her email address is [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]>
Would you be able to organise a tour for us?

Kind regards,
Gaye Hafner
