Location

Casa Blanca Hotel Boutique is located in Santa Marianita, Ecuador. Casa Blanca Hotel overlooks the beautiful beach and Pacific Ocean. Santa Marianita is a small and friendly fishing village about 15 minutes south of the city of Manta. It is a beach lovers paradise. The beach here is sandy at 300 meters wide and 4 kilometers long.

The area of Santa Marianita is a dry tropical forest with little rainfall. The strong equatorial sun makes the interior heat up quickly combining that with the cooler air over the sea makes for ideal conditions for thermal up drafts and winds suitable for kite surfing.

Santa Marianita has a population of an estimated 3,600. The locals are mainly fisherman and take pride in keeping their local beaches clean. Tourism is becoming more popular as the area is becoming renown for kite surfing.

The village is also known as Playa Bonita to the locals. The wind conditions here are excellent for beginners and advanced kiters. You can be sure that every condition will occur to allow even beginners to learn how to kite surf on this long open stretch of beach.

Advanced kiters won’t be disappointed as some of the best kiting is found at Santa Marianita. Nick Obea, the co-founder of the kitehouse says it the best stating, “It was my first time I kite boarded and surfed with dolphins and whales at the same time!”

Whale watching

As if the beautiful ocean views from your hotel was not enough, how about you add whale watching off your patio to the list! Each and every summer Ecuador’s coast turns into the breeding grounds for the migrating humpback whale. The whales swim and play right off of Santa Marianita’s beaches.

These magnificent animals migrate over 7,000 kilometers every year from the frigid waters of Antarctica. These wonderful mammals swim up to the warm waters off of Ecuador’s coast to give birth to their cubs. Food is plentiful here as they follow the nutrient rich Humboldt current.

First to arrive to Ecuador are the male humpback whales, then shortly thereafter the pregnant females make their journey to give birth to their young cubs. Whale watching occurs from June to the latter portion of September. It is estimated that anywhere from 400 to 2,600 whales come to Ecuador every year, making this a popular tourist attraction for those who want to experience whale watching at its finest.

The big males are seen to jump out of the water frequently to attract a mate, while making unusual sounds during the routine. If you would like to take a whale watching tour to get up close and personal with these wonderful mammals, you can book a whale watching tour with Casa Blanca Hotel Boutique. You can be sure that the experience you have will stay with you forever, so come and visit Santa Marianita soon.

Kite surfing
