For years now, the mesmeric shades of blue that light up Ecuador’s Pacific coast have been attracting tourists from all over the nation’s mountainous regions and beyond. The arid coastline will capture you with beautiful beaches, fresh seafood, and a great diversity of marine life.
In fact, lots of travelers have pointed out that the neighboring Central American shorelines pale in comparison to the Ecuadorian coastline. The arid shrublands which dominate most of the coastal region are too
exciting at first glance. Better yet, the area’s marine reserves and mellow beach towns will look even better when you get closer.
Each year from June to September, Ecuador’s coastlines swarms with tens of thousands of migrating humpback whales. These astounding, 49-ton animals breach constantly.
The Ecuadorian shores qualify as the best whale watching locations in the world.
