Surf and Spanish in Montanita - Ecuador
Surfing in Montanita
All agree that Montanita with its warm ocean temperatures has the best waves in Ecuador with really good overall conditions for surfing and body surfing. Between February and July the waves from the right (point break types of waves) reach a height of 3 meters at “La Punta”. There are also so called hot dog waves at high tide on the beach of Montanita. But it is not only the best place in Ecuador for surfing, it is also the best place in whole South America for riding the waves.

A few decades ago Montanita was only a small fishermen village, but then surfers (and also hippies) found that place on the Ecuadorian coast. Today Montanita is a hotspot for surfers from all over the world and a venue for international surfing competitions.
