They offer surf lessons if you want to learn how to surf, there is a swimmingpool to chill by, they have a grill if you want to BBQ and the breakfast is good. Every night there is beautiful...

Las Tunas was one of my favourite spots on the Pacific coast and Viejamar hostel was my best Ecuador hostel to date! It's a peaceful little bario not too far from Puerto Lopez and 10minutes on the bus to Ayampe. The beach is a quiet paradise with hardly a soul there every day. The hostel is equally perfect to spend...

We loved our stay at Viejamar. We didn't want to leave. The best bit is the balcony "el mirador" where you could easily spend a whole day, having breakfast, then coffee, watching the waves, the rocky island opposite, the birds, the butterflies, the surfers, the pelicans that fly in formation above the waves. Another highlight were the volunteers; Emily and...

Hostel positioned 1 km north of the Las tunas village. Friedly personell (Volunteers mainly) Nice garden setting. Check out friendly Mamos across the main road where you can see the Esmeraldas woodstar - the second(?) smallest bird ! Swell from the south created difficult surfing conditions at this spot (ie along the whole beach). There are pointbreaks around though. The...
