Playa Escondida
Reviewed October 7, 2007

We camped here, easily one of the best campsitesin Ecuador. The accommodation looked good too, but we didnt use it. Excellent composting toilets, quirky shower. And best of all a fantastic beach right on your doorstep. Recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In South America, from the foot hills of the Andes Mountains of Ecuador, the river Malpelo winds down to the Pacific Coast forming a beautiful bay now called Playa Escondida (hideaway beach). Truly off the beaten track, with the nearest town fourteen km's away, you are assured of privacy, safety, a pristine beach and gentle surf. The backdrop for this idyllic shoreline is an ecological refuge of 100 hectares. Here we are dedicated to protecting the diverse flora and fauna of the semi-tropical forest from local hunters, logging, cattle and shrimp farming, not to mention commercial tourism; all forces which the threaten the fragile eco-system of this vital littoral. Come and experience the magic of one of the last frontiers on the Pacific Rim. The refuge currently has capacity for thirty people. Prices range from US$7 to $25 per person. There is a secluded area with lots of shade for camping, with showers. Children up to 10 years old pay half price. ... more   less
