I will be on a cruise next year and list of ports say Quito (Manta). As this will be my first visit to this part of the world when I started a bit of research it seems the 2 places are about 10 travelling hours apart and as the ship is only in port for a total of 12 hours this does not seem correct. Are there 2 towns called Manta? Obviously on such a short visit I would like to see as much as possible in the time allowed and not spend the time travelling on a bus. Am I better just spending the time in Quito?
Just wondering, i am finding it very difficult to find a place to rent in Manta. I see tons of places in cuenca and other spots but nothing here, Does anyone have any suggestions??
We are hoping to get an ordinary bus from the port in Manta to Montecristi. Is this practical, are there regular buses, and where in Manta would we get the bus?
We are scheduled to do two stops in Manta on a cruise ship

We will also be in Guayaquil, Ecuador on November 26th where we are doing the Guayaquil City & Historical Park tour.
The only tour the ship lists for Manta is one that deals with the manufacture of Panama hats. Is that a worthwhile activity? Is there anything else I should try to see or do in Manta or nearby that would give us a good view of Ecuador?
i am going to be staying in Manta for a few nights does any one know of any good hotels?
What is appropriate wear in Manta? What should a teenager bring to wear?
Hello, people ! Could anyone tell me more about the city of Manta, in the Province of Manaibi (Ecuador) ? Thanks in advance.
