    April's devastating earthquake

    by apbeaches Online Now Jul 15, 2016 at 4:27 PM

    We will be visiting December, 2016 and understand that there was a devastating earthquake in April 2016. How does Manta look now? Beaches clean? City safe? Is there anything special to see and do at this point?

    Visiting coastal Manta, Ecuador in June

    by apbeaches Online Now Mar 12, 2014 at 4:14 PM

    Are bug bites a big problem? I would prefer not using deet and chemicals, is there a natural repellent? Garlic? Ginger? Should I plan on long sleeves in the evening? CDC recommends Malaria, typhoid & hepatitis A - any thoughts and ideas?

  • How far from Quito

    by bangles Online Now Nov 8, 2013 at 2:38 PM

    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?

    Where exactly is this residential community I heard about in Canada located in Ecuador? Does anyone know more about this place? I looked at the website but I could not find out any past history of this company or where they are located in Canada.

  • Bus to Montecristi

    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?

    Visits by cruise ship in November

    by grandmaR Online Now Sep 16, 2008 at 6:43 AM

    We are scheduled to do two stops in Manta on a cruise ship

    Wednesday, Nov 19, 2008 6:00 am - 7:00 pm
    Thursday, Nov 27, 2008 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

    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?
