You have to take Carlos Alberto Aray bus from Guayaquil to Puerto Lopez. They leave from the Terminal Terrestre.

Saludos cordiales,

Ditto above head for Puerto Lopez on the bus

prettiest area with great coast nice diving vibe...easy acess from thre

to Isla de La Plata

www.hosteriamandala.info was AWESOME for me there recently

good discounts of over 30% off rack rates with www.guanguiltagua.com

Avoid Salinas too touristy...

Happy Journey,

Hello ColinandClay,

My suggestion is to pay a little more and go by taxi, you can bargain the rate directly, take a taxi from outside of the airport, make sure is a yellow cab and negociate with him. Sometimes bus ride can be a little tricky and since you may have luggage with you, a good option will be a taxi.

Please be careful on the timings, is not suggested to travel at night as that road is quite isolated and it can be dangerous, try to do everything with the sunlight!

Enjoy Manabi is great!
