Atacames is rumored to have the ‘whitest’ sand in all of Ecuador, but I’d say it also has one of the widest, biggest beaches in Ecuador as well.
A party town with an Afro-caribbean flavor in Ecuador, this is where the folks from Quito come to party from June through September.
Things to do?
- Party along the boardwalk with the rowdy young locals.
- Work on your tan in the daytime.
Where to stay?
My value pick is the Le Castel right on the beach with a swimming pool on site. You’ll think you need to pay more for the room you’re put in with rates starting around $20 pr person varying on season.
