We did a private tour ($54 each) from Manta while visiting on the Volendam (Holland America). This location has fantastic views of Montecristi, an interesting demonstration on making Panama hats, a museum and a great Mausoleum (both for José Eloy Alfaro Delgado, former president of Ecuador). One can also purchase souvenirs here and look at an old train. At the small cafe, we purchased beer and empanadas.

This site is located just outside the town of Montechristi up the hill. There are a couple of a museums here in addition to restaurants, souvenir shops, Panama Hat demonstrations and old train display.

BOTTOM LINE: We took a tour to here while visiting Manta on a Princess Cruise stop for the day. We had a quick stop below in the town to visit some flea market souvenir stalls and the large Catholic church in the center of town. Afterwards we drove up here to see a view of the city and see a Panama Hat demo of how these hat are made. Fun stop and shopping. The cost for our tour from the cruise port was $54 each for 3 hours of touring. MY RATING: 7/10

The museum and the mausoleum are sights not to miss in the Manta area. When one thinks of revolutionary history, one thinks of Bolivar or Martin, but Alfaro is up there with them when it comes to Ecuador.

We visited this museum during a private tour. It was interesting to learn about Eloy Alfaro and how he affected Ecuador but not sure it was worth a visit. No air conditioning was working on a very hot and humid day. Maybe that is why we didn't care because we were so uncomfortable.

A good overview of history. Nice views of the distant country side. Not much time will be needed but worth adding to a day tour of the area. Near the Panama Hat shops.

It is actually a mausoleum for Eloy Alfaro Delgado. He was president for 22 years. The inside is very interesting. Many sculptures in gold leaf on the walls.

We were visiting with friends who live in Manta, and they took us to this museum and tomb. All of it was very well done, a must see if in the area. We were on a cruise and would not have seen this place had we not been with locals. Well worth the trip to Montecristi. We especially like bed the tomb of the former president.

The Cuidad Alfarao’s Memorial (Mausoleum) is located on top of a hill which overlooks the city. Jose Eloy Alfaro Delgado founded the area and he is buried there. The mausoleum echoed and was so loud inside with different tour guides trying to explain facts to their groups that it hurt our ears and we soon left the building.

This place tells the story of Alfaro, actually, most of the exhibitions are dedicated to him. We learnt a lot of what he did for Ecuador just by looking at the exbitions. Well displayed and educational.
