CoCo Bongo Hostel
Est. January 15, 2005
Bahia de Caraquez, or just Bahia, sits on the southern mouth of a large bay. What used to be one of Ecuador´s largest ports has become more of an eco-town in recent decades as the harbor suffered from heavy erosion, and much of its shipping industry moved south to Guayaquil or Manta. This has been great news for retirees and expats looking for a small beach town free of noise.
Bahia is located right in the middle of Ruta del Sol. The name given to a scenic coastal route runs from Salinas that heading north to Esmeraldas. and the impressive new bridge connecting Bahia to San Vicente has really opened up the area.
CoCo Bongo Hostel is located in the heart of Bahia right across from the towns largest most beautiful park(Parque de Madres). You are just minutes away from the white sand beach on the Rio Chone Estuary and the Pacific Ocean. Bring flip flops and a bathing suit the water is warm year-round and the weather is incredible.
