[Ecuador] After the capital, the Amazon rainforest and the Andes mountains, I changed completely of scenery to spend 10 days on the pacific coast of the country, or more exactly, in the central part of it, in the Manabí region. I visited three hotels/lodges: Pacoche – natural reserve & lodge, RioMuchacho – organic farm & lodge, and Shanti Hostal. But it’s above all Elsa, the French Founder of the ecotourism Narwell Ecotours agency, who welcomed me by her sides in Manta. And I left then to meet with jumping humpback whales, rare birds and Teo on “Plata” island, and dived into a few mojitos, piña coladas and daiquiris on the Montanita beach.
