Makes it Want to Go Back!

Atacames, located in the North of the Coast of Ecuador in the Province of Esmeralda, is a small fishing village that has grown to cater tourists that are looking for more than just relaxing. On the weekends, the crowds are loud and rowdy!!
The beach area has a boardwalk and tons of bars right on the sand in the form of huts... These huts have either hammocks, or swings besides regular tables and chairs where you can spend the entire day, away from the burning sun if you desire, admiring the sea, hearing music and enjoying a chilling drink like Caispirina...

The Boardwalk

Walk the length of the boardwalk to scope out fun things to do... Me, in the middle of the street for overall view of Atacames beach front. The hotel where we stayed is the tallest structure in the back

Go into Town

Explore the town, take advantage of the local shops, like the fruit markets and bakeries for a light lunch or snacks...
