Accommodation

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.

Features

  • Wi-Fi throughout the house
  • Laundry service
  • A range of books (mostly in Swedish)

Ecuador

80% of Ecuador’s best surf spots are within a two-hour drive. Drive for twenty minutes in Ecuador and you often find yourself in another world; different climate, landscape, language, and faces.

Bordered by Colombia to the north, Peru to the east and south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west, Ecuador comprises four main regions: The Coast, Galapagos, The Andes, and The Amazon.

Las Tunas

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.
