Cruises to Manta

Pristine beaches, picturesque villages and a unique tropical dry forest await your exploration outside Manta. Or spend your day discovering the charming atmosphere and colonial architecture of nearby Montecristi, which was founded in the early 1600s. As the birthplace of the famed Panama hat, a stop at Montecristi's local hat shops to view these pieces of woven art are a must while touring the small town.
