We run a kite center in Santa Marianita next to Manta. It is a beautiful property directly on the beach. The kite school has, kite equipment for rent, a 6-bed dorm, four private rooms and a little snack bar. We also have two shared kitchens for guests and employees.
The season starts in June and goes until January. We have wind up to 20 knots! WOOP! If you are interested in kitesurfing then this is the place to be!
Our kite center is a 10 minute walk to the village of Santa Marianita. It is a beautiful, relaxed place with a gorgeous beach and breathtaking sunsets. If you are a party person this neighbourhood might not fulfill your expectations as we have limited access to bars or restaurants but the tranquility here cannot be beaten.

There are several day trips you can do starting from Manta:
Pacoche National Park, Playa de los Frailes, Puerto Lopez, Isla de la Plata, Montechristi (Sombrero Manufacturer).
We also offer paddleboarding and surfing which you can do from the kite school or in the next town down the beach. The beach is 3 miles long so we often take walks and collect plastic if there is any or just play with the lovely four dogs we have.
