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. Plan your trip to Manta and other Ecuador destinations using our handy Ecuador trip generator.

Where to stay

If you're looking for a sea view and quick access to the beach, expect to pay a premium for the privilege. Look farther inland to find budget-friendly options, with a good number of basic hotels offering comfortable rooms in various residential areas.
