Let me point out that we are not your average tourist in Ecuador. We live in Quito and thus were able to drive to Chirije and bring along all of our beach gear, from towels to boogie boards and binoculars to bird books. We spent several days hiking the local trails and meandering on the beach. It was lovely. This...

We arranged with the Lodge to be picked up at the airport in Manta. After about an hour drive the road ended at the coast and our driver made a left turn right onto the beautiful beach. About 20 minutes later we were at the lodge which is perched on a hillside with incredible views up and down the beach....

I live in Ecuador for almost 17 years now, and have wanted to visit Chirije - pronounced chee-ree'-hay -- for about ten years. I finally had the great pleasure of a three day stay. Chirije is an small and outstanding beachfront eco-lodge which has been declared an archeological site and with good reason. The owners and staff could not have...

Driving down the beach at low tide, passing fishermen searching the rocks for octopus you arrive at the Chirije Ecolodge and drive up the bank to find a most amazing place. No where have I seen such a unique combination of ecolodge, archaeological site and ufo port! That's right, the location has seen, according to accounts, a great deal of...

Walk in to the archaeology museum, out for a surfing lesson, around for a guided discovery hike... Or hang out on a hammock listening to the waves and looking out to the ocean... you can do all this in Chirije. If you're looking for a bustling, shopping kind of experience, this place wouldn't be for you; it is delightfully isolated...

Chirije is a well kept secret with thatched roof huts and colorful bungalows right on a beautiful stretch of beach. Staying here is like having your own private hideaway. The amount of untapped artifacts on this land is amazing.

“The best room is the one next to the beach with a view of the coast. However, you can also see the same view from the porch that is open to everyone. So if you have a family that wants to share a space together, don't worry about taking a room further back. We arrived at mosquito time which are supposed to be worse in the rooms further away from the beach but my son had few problems with bites and no problems with insects in his room at night.”
