We are welcoming you now, to this beautiful bamboo lodge, only few yards short of the Ocean Pacific shore. The water temperature rarely goes under 85°F, and you won’t wait long before jumping into it…
On the property, Richard, our guide and mechanic, is finishing the construction of the mechanical workshop, using bamboos to stay in the same spirit and natural style.
In this paradise spot, our logistic team and its travelers are forced to swim in the ocean, practice kite surfing, and watch the whales coming nearby as you eat fresh seafood…
Fishing is an inevitable activity in the region of Manta. Every day, local fishermen are selling out on the beach. Don Henry, our chef in the Lodge’s kitchen will do the rest with perfection.
