Tour description provided by G Adventures

Cities, beach, exploring, beach — we know the choice between kickin’ it on the shore and seeing all those sites can be a tough one, so we got rid of the struggle. Exploring highlights along Ecuador’s scenic coast will give you that laid-back vibe with a little extra sweetness when you get to stop at a cacao-farming hacienda. With time to see the colonial cities of Quito and Cuenca, you can then chill out in surfer’s paradise, Montañita. See? Debates aren’t so hard to win after all.
