Montañita Ecuador

Ecuador, Montanita surferMontanita, is a small colorful village located approximately 4 km north of Manglar alto, in the Guayas province, known throughout Ecuador as the best beach for surfing. It has a population of around 1,000 inhabitants.

Montañita  is where sports lovers can find the best beach for surfing with waves reaching three meters of height.

Due to both its charm and excellent surfing it has grown in popularity over the last few years and although small, it's a booming beachside retreat, attracting its fair share of foreigners as well as an alternative Ecuadorian crowd.

Water temperatures range from 56-68 degrees. The place holds surfing competitions the whole year round especially in the high season (December through April), when lots of people from Guayaquil and foreigners arrive to the village.
