Following the sun along the Route of the Sun Jul 01, 2009
The Ruta del Sol (Route of the Sun) is a strip of some of the most popular and nicest beaches in the country. It starts in the South in Salinas in the Guayas province and goes until Manta in the Manabi province, including the best surfing of the Galapagos.

When to go? The best season is December-July, when the sun is always shining. September-November the temperature drops, but also the prices.

I spent driving along the Ruta del Sol around a week, but you can do it for longer, just discovering small beaches. This route is becoming more touristy, so they are developing good infrastructure.

These are some spots you shouldn't miss (south to north): Puerto Lopez with the Machililla National Park and Montanita, a party / surf town. Oh and don't forget the delicious seafood and fish you will try along the whole coast.

Hi Jim, great to know you enjoy the blogs and find useful info. Mmm, there are several hostels and if you are looking for party you can stay at the main road, but it's very loud, well it depends if you want to party or not. I wrote reviews about the places where I ate, but try the street food. A good juice is always refreshing and tasty! Well, there are several travelers, but always use your common sense :)

yadillita, Enjoying your blogs! I am leaving for Ecuador in a month for 12 short days there. Will be in Montanita for at least 2 of those days. Any suggestions for places to stay and eat or places to avoid? How was the crime and safety in Montanita area? Jim
