The adobe-style buildings that make up this lodge may remind you a bit of Old Mexico. Nestled among the kapok trees of Parque Nacional Machalilla, the resort has its own guides to take you out on wilderness excursions. You can also join fishing, diving, and whale-watching trips aboard the Mantarayas II and Mantarayas III. Reservations are made through Advantage Travel in Quito.
