Introducing Machala

Surrounded by banana plantations – the oro verde (green gold), which is the province’s moniker – Machala is the commercial and administrative capital of El Oro Province. The city is a convenient stop south from Guayaquil on the way to the Peruvian border or as a place to base yourself for journeys further into the mountains directly to the east. Puerto Bolívar, only 7km away, is the local international port and seafood central.
