Welcome to Same & Tonchigüe
The community has rallied and organized better private security up and down the little road which leads to the beach. Same is an unbridled delight compared to Atacames – mucho mas tranquilo, you might say. You can rent stand-up paddleboards (per hour $10) on the beach, and there are a surprising number of fine little dining establishments in this hidden nook. Morning winds provide decent surf.
Tonchigüe is a tiny fishing village about 3km west of Same, along the same stretch of beach. Go early in the morning to see the fisherpeople unloading their catch.
