Manta

Trip Planner South America  /  Ecuador  /  Manabi Province  /  Manta

Ecuador's First Seaport

A busy and wealthy port town, Manta serves as an increasingly important economic hub thanks to its thriving tuna fishing industry and famously productive population. Tourism in Manta focuses primarily on the coastline, with a selection of urban beaches and more remote stretches of sand particularly popular with visitors from around the country. Panama hats, a popular item to pick up while in town, come from a nearby artisan village, said to be the first place to dream them up. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Manta and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
