Itinerary

Times are subject to change.

You will be met by your Cruising Excursions Representative at the port.  Departing the quayside you shall join our tour vehicle for a brief journey to the archaeological museum of Banco Central, which highlights the local culture and ethnic origins of the area.

You will then take a drive along the scenic seaside promenade and through the suburbs of Manta to charming Montecristi, home of the famous Panama Hat.  Your first visit will be at the Civic Center and Memorial, Ciudad Alfaro for a photo shop.  This complex was built in 2007 to be the site where Equador’s new constitution was written.

After the constitution was approved it became a Memorial for the Ex President Eloy Alfaro the president who led the country to a new era of progress and liberal ideas.  His main ideal was to link the lowlands with the highlands to achieve the integration of the nation.  He accomplished this goal by building the rail road system.  In Ciudad Alfaro you will find a place to relax and better comprehend the Ecuadorian history.

The tour will then continue to the town of Montecristi, which is indeed the highlight of the tour and still retains the atmosphere and faded elegance of its Spanish heritage. The tour will stop to allow you to souvenir shop, and there is plenty to choose from including straw baskets, jewellery, colourful crafts and Panama Hats.

Your final stop would be the local fish market. Fishing is still one of the main source of living in Ecuador, here you will get a chance to see the typical Ecuadorian life.
