The Best of Manta

Try the famous tuna, hit the beach, and enjoy the nightlife

This bustling port city on Ecuador’s central coast is important to the fishing industry, so make sure you sample the area’s legendary seafood. Manta is called the Tuna Capital of the World and celebrates that honor with a giant statue of the iconic fish attached to a tuna can. The city is also known for beautiful beaches like Tarqui Beach, which is lined with seafood vendors, and Murcielago Beach, offering big waves for surfing and a beachfront promenade dotted with restaurants and souvenir shops. For some local culture, see the pre-Colombian artifacts and Ecuadorian paintings at the Manta Central Bank Museum and check out the city’s lively nightlife scene, comprised of ceviche spots, bars, nightclubs, and casinos.
