Manta enjoys a summer-like climate
all year; it almost never rains and temperatures hover around 24
degrees Celsius on account of the perpetually shining sun. Manta
is Ecuador's only small - home to 180,000 people - sea-side city
that has a developed infrastructure for travelers. In addition to
its beautiful beaches, Manta boasts a number excellent hotels, restaurants
and a rich night life, as well as banks, malls and all modern services
including the Internet. Also, close to the city you will find Machalilla
National Park, Isla de la Plata (a nice if not so lavish alternative
to the Galapagos Island), artisan towns, mangrove forests, ancient
ruins and a number of other popular attractions.
