Ecuador: Explore Montecristi With A Stay At Mantaraya Lodge


UNESCO declares the Ecuadorian traditional straw hat, also known as Panama hat, as an intangible piece of cultural heritage.

The production of the Ecuadorian straw hats is a tradition handed down from generation to generation; the youngest generation continues to improve and refine the technique in order to create the most unique and elegant hats, purses and wallets that can cost up to $10,000.

Mantaraya Lodge, in their efforts to restore and maintain cultural traditions of Ecuadorian towns and villages, is inviting guests to take one of their tours where they include a visit to Montecristi, a small town that is well known country wide for the production of these particular hats.

Three, four and five day programs that combine nature with cultural activities in a relaxed environment at the Ecuadorian Pacific Coast are available, starting at $513 per passenger.
