Machalilla National Park Vacations
Machalilla National Park is located approximately 180 miles (290 kilometers) from Quito, the country's capital.
To discover why so many travelers select Manabi as a travel destination, make sure you allow some time to hit the road and explore the wider area. You may also wish to check out Montanita, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the north, and Ayangue 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the north.
Experience the region's rich cultural fabric within Manabi's history museums and craft workshops.
Are you looking for a a high-altitude experience while you are in this region. Try paragliding; you'll never forget it. Manabi offers some great options for travelers with a love of water. Canoeing and swimming are both popular pastimes here.
Allowing time to practice a few key phrases in the local language often separates the true travelers from the mere tourists. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" translates to "Would you like to dance with me?" "Este caballero pagará por todo" ("This gentleman will pay for everything") is another handy one to keep up your sleeve.
The 10th of August is Independence Day, so if you're lucky enough to be in Machalilla National Park then, keep in mind that banks, business and some attractions may have reduced opening hours as the country celebrates.
When it's time to head back home, you'll be bidding Machalilla National Park a sad Adiós (farewell).
