You can choose to enjoy the beach life or culture on the stopover in this city on the Costa Pacifica of Ecuador. 

The first settlement dates from the pre-Columbian civilisations of Manta, when the city was called Jocay. Has always been a famous commercial port, since ancient times, in fact, and enabled contact and exchanges amongst civilisations of the Ecuadorian coast and the Incas. Today we find ourselves in front of a city of over 200,000 inhabitants, surrounded by beautiful ocean beaches, full of restaurants and nightclubs. A tour of Manta could start from near Santuario de la Virgen de Monserrate, continuing to see the craftsmanship of straw hats. A stop at the Banco Central museum will allow you to dive into art and mana culture.

Not to be missed:

• Museo del Banco Central

• Beach of Murcielago
