The Mudhouse Hostel
Mompiche is a quaint little fishing village in northern Ecuador. The village rests on a 40-mile crescent-moon bay. The world-class waves attract surfers from all over the globe and is a fantastic place to learn how to surf (classes and board rentals available year-round) since there are waves for all ability levels. Also out in that great big blue space, you can go on whale-watching excursions (September-November) or sit on the beach at night and be mesmerized by the fluorescent-green color of the plankton lighting up the waves, depending, of course, on the month you are here. There is a gorgeous, small island 10 minutes away called “Isla Portete”. It is not much more than a few homes, miles of pristine coastline, coconut palms and peace. From Mompiche, you can also walk to a stunning and picturesque black-sand beach only minutes away. Mompiche offers horseback riding along the beach. Also, just behind us is a protected rain forest packed full of incredible flora and fauna. There are forest tours available where you can see monkeys, toucans, parrots, waterfalls and much more. In short, Mompiche is a beautiful place to disconnect from everything and reconnect with nature.
