Las Tunas Recommended

Las Tunas is the place to go for the combination of catching waves and relaxing in a nice little town. The deserted white sandy beach stretches out for several kilometers. You only have to share it with the local fishermen and very few tourists.

It is amazing to see that Las Tunas is only half hour away from the bustling tourism town Puerto Lopez, but there are no tourists to be found. Las Tunas is the ideal place for people trying to get away from things and immerge in the tranquil life that this little commuity has to offer.

The main attraction to Las Tunas is the beach and the amazing surfing waves, all year round. This makes Las Tunas a great alternative for the popular surfspots Montanita and Canoa.

Las Tunas has a lot more to offer than just surfing and a great beach. The nearby towns of Puerto Rico and Ayampe make great destinations for a nice walk on the beach.

The local people can also organise tours to inland destinations. The dry forest is one of the most fascinating areas in the country. You can go here for a hike or go horseback riding. Just ask in the local restaurants for more information.

There are also tours offered to the nearby mangrove forests near the Ayampe river. Mangroves are being threatened with distinction in this area.
