Where on Earth? Week 44 – Montañita, Ecuador

This week’s Where on Earth is Montañita, Ecuador, a small tourist-filled town on the coast of Ecuador. If you’re heading to Ecuador and want to learn to surf on the cheap, this is the place to do it. Boards can be rented for about $5 a day and lessons are cheap as well. You’ll find plenty of other backpackers to hook up with here (in just about every sense of that phrase) if that’s what you’re looking for. Be careful visiting, however, as you might never want to leave.

Congrats to all those who knew the answer, and to those who didn’t, hang in there. Things’ll pick up.
