Bahia de Caraquez

Bahia de Caraquez is still a popular place for rich Ecuadoreans to enjoy a holiday. In many ways it is similar to Salinas near Guayaquil. Skyscrapers and apartment buildings have been built in Bahia de Caraquez 15 years ago and are usually filled with Quitenos enjoying a weekend at the coast.

For foreign visitors Bahia de Caraquez may not be the number one beach destination, but it is still worth a stop. A pleasant walk along the boulevard and excellent seafood restaurants will undoubtfully be a pleasant way to spend an evening for anybody.

Bahia de Caraquez is also famous for being very ecofriendly. Recycling is very common and the place is clean.
