Take Me to Ecuador is the place to come for a maximum experience. It is a paradise for surfers of all levels. On your surfing holiday in Ecuador, you will stay for 14 days. Besides surfing, you have a lot of free time to explore the area and to experience the culture. Whether you’re an absolute beginner or a wave hunter, goofy or natural, you’ll find your perfect spot along Ecuador’s 600-kilometer coastline!
During this retreat, you will stay for 13 nights at Take Me to Ecuador’s coastal headquarter and surf camp, Casa Esperanto. With stunning views of the ocean and the mountains, the house is set in a large tropical garden with papaya, bananas, mango, and coconuts plants.
Here, you can check the surf from the balcony before paddling out, rinse off at the garden shower under a palm tree, harvest your own coconut, or barbecue the freshest fish. Sip sunset cocktails on the balcony as the fragrance of exotic flowers drifts on the breeze.
Built by local people using local materials, Casa Esperanto is simple and stylish, with whitewashed walls, warm wood accents, and a traditional palapa roof. Eight guests can be accommodated in two big dormitory-style rooms with comfortable bunk beds, mosquito screens, fans and air conditioning, security boxes, and plenty of storage. Casa Esperanto also offers guests access to Take Me to Ecuador’s private cabañas with hammocks on the beach.
A gigantic 14 meters x 3 meters polished wood balcony at the casa is a focal point of the house, with a deck of equal proportions opening onto the garden. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, with a huge wooden table for family-style dinners. Both bathrooms are big enough for cocktail parties, with plenty of hot water. The house is kept clean, well maintained and secured at all times.
This package is designed for the full spectrum of beginner surfers, from the absolute novice to the pre-intermediate. If you’re a total beginner or have surfed just a few times before, this is an excellent opportunity to master the basics and build a solid foundation to improve your skills.

Las Tunas is a small fishing village in the Ecuadorian province of Manabí, just three hours from Guayaquil’s international airport. Dotted with bamboo cabañas serving legendary seafood, the beach at Las Tunas is long and uncrowded. Beyond the well-known sites, the coast near Las Tunas is sprinkled with hidden beaches, secret surf spots and spectacular viewpoints known only to locals.
A defining feature in Las Tunas is Los Ahorcados, a striking rock formation rising out of the ocean to form a backdrop for sensational sunsets. A small lagoon teems with birds, disturbed only by the occasional fisherman with a throw net, catching shrimp.
During this surfing holiday, you will be served 13 breakfasts, 12 lunches, and 9 dinners.
