each destinations of Ecuador. The city was a fun and happening place! There was a great combination of families and youth going to Pedernales to enjoy the beach, eat seafood and going out at night.

Unfortunately, Pedernales has passed its peak. Slowly but surely places like Atacames and Canoa are starting to be more prominent in the area and people have lost interest in Pedernales.

Pedernales is still a nice place to go, but it is not what it used to be. There is a lot of accommodation available that only fills up (more or less) during the weekend. Most of the restaurants and hotels are a bit run down and not worth your time.

The beach is still there, but polluted. If you want to see what the negative effect of tourism can have on a little town in Ecuador, go to Pedernales.
