Manta has a rich history: it was originally settled by the pre-Hispanic Manteña culture. Today it is a primary city in the province of Manabì.

Nearby in the province is the famous Isla de la Plata, which has flora and fauna similar to that found in the Galápagos Islands. On Isla de la Plata one finds such unique species as blue-footed boobies, frigates, and one can see whales there from June through September.

Produced in Manabì and known throughout the world are the original and official "Panama" hats, which are made just outside of Manta in the town of Montecristi. Manabì is also famous for its rich cuisine, which for many is the best in the country. For those who enjoy sea food Manta is second to none.

Manta Tips

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.
