Mompiche: A deserted surf paradise turned resort


Few people outside surfers knew about Mompiche, a little, lush green cove with great waves (lefts) until Ecuador’s first all-inclusive luxury resort went in, De Cameron.

Its retained its low-key vibe but prices have risen since the resort finished in 2009.

Where to stay on a budget?

Id stay at my budget pick, the DMCA Surf Hostel with basic rooms with cold showers starting around $8 per person.
