Surf everyday, lounge in hammocks and eat some of the most amazing fish caught and cooked by locals.

Surf & Other Activities

Ecuador is the best place for surfers no matter what their skill level as it is the one place where you will be able to find all year swells, warm water and quiet breaks.


The perfect spot for surfing is waiting for you in Ecuador with its 600km coastline with point breaks, jetties, rock reefs, beach breaks and river mouths.


The best months for surfing are from December to May when the El Nino current brings in the swells from the north. This is when Ecuador turns into a world-class surfing spot.


Las Tunas

Las Tunas is a small fishing village that is dotted with bamboo cabanas that serve the most beautiful seafood and the beach is uncrowded and relaxed.


There are plenty of activities in Las Tunas including surfing in uncrowded spots and right and left hand breaks.


You can explore further in on horseback or bike to find a land of jungle.


The Machalilla National Park

The Machalilla National Park is just 15 minutes in the north and is the home of the famous Isla de la Plata. This is the home of many Galapagos species and is the best place to humpbacked whales. The Los Frailes beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Ecuador and Agua Blanca is an ancient civilization site.


Surfing in Las Tunas

Take Me to Ecuador knows where all the hidden breaks are and the best conditions for each one.


They are located in Las Tunas and offer you surf and beach right at your front door.




Like any self-respecting surf camp, they offer yoga classes, but that’s just the beginning! If a few people are interested in taking salsa classes, learning a few Spanish phrases or making traditional Ecuadorian cuisine, they’ll arrange for a local expert to come to the house at no extra cost. If most of the group is interested in making ceviche and you’d rather learn some new dance moves, it’s no problem, but your 1:1 salsa class may carry a small additional charge.

Leni (January 2015)
I stayed at Casa Esperanto with a group of friends and had a wonderful time! There is so mich to see and explore in the area and the beachhouse is the perfect spot to base yourself! The large terraces are just heaven at sunset and the little beach hut was also a real treat! The rooms are large and very spacious as is the kitchen dinner, really light and airy! It's difficult to find fault here! i would recommend Casa Esperanto to my friends in a heartbeat and a huge thanks to Jorge for helping us with all our needs.

Yaninochka (March 2014)
I stayed at Casa Esperanto for a few days last year while travelling solo around South America. I must say, it was one of the most charming and peaceful places I had visited during that trip. Located in a small village of Las Tunas, it is the perfect place for those who are looking to spend time in a quiet, non-touristic area, and may be get immersed into the local atmosphere. The house is located right near the ocean. The owner was very nice and extremely helpful with everything from helping with phone calls (i didn't speak spanish) to showing the guests around. Also good internet (in case it's important for you).
