Sorry about moving this old post up, but......

it's just what I was going to post about.

We have just one day from a cruise ship that docks in Manta. There are 4 of us that would like to hire a guide/taxi/English Speaking for a day to take us interesting placs like the town that makes "Panama Hats"!

Any ideas or suggestions? This is our first time on this side of South America and want to see all we can.

Thanks.

Go from the port to the Oro Verde Hotel, (right turn out of the port and up the hill about 1km)the front desk staff speak pretty good english, hire one of their private taxis, totally safe, to take you to town Montecristi. They are famous makers of Panama Hata. Also very good coffee and other art.

Also forgot to add Jipijapa (pronounced hipi hapa) they have great coffee and is maybe 10 min or so from Montecristi. Also no need to go to Portoviejo, nothing really to see there.
