Dom’s Guide to Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador

Where to stay in Bahia?

There’s not much accommodation selection in Bahia, but that may be to a lack of demand, Bahia being primarily just a weekend destination for most travelers.

I recommend for higher end budgets La Herradura Hotel, the only hotel right on the boardwalk, ocean front in Bahia.  The hotel has an upscale restaurant and prices start from $20 for the single room, $40 for the double.  Ask for one of the few rooms with an ocean view!  Contact 05-2690446 or see laherradurahotel.com for more.

For budget travelers I recommend y personal fav, La Bahia Hotel, right in front of the Puerto Amistad Bar-Restaurant.  The rooms are Spartan but clean and the price is right, $8 per person and $16 for a double.

Where to eat in Bahia?

I recommend the Puerto Amistad Bar-Restaurant with amazing views of the bay this is the foreigner hang out, but locals like it too.  The wings and Quesadillas are some of the best in Ecuador and priced under $5.  Seafood and typical Ecuadorian dishes are also available.
