The town’s local restaurants and small eateries which are run by local families, are mixed with newer shops and restaurants from expats that now call Ayampe home. It is a quaint town surrounded by an overwhelming amount of nature and culture Mix in a consistent, peaky beach break that goes on for miles and secret uncrowded point breaks and you have a true surfer’s paradise.

Ecuador Surf Hotels

We offer a variety of lodging options for the ultimate Ecuador surf trip for any budget. Choose from hostels, boutique hotels, high-end luxury hotels, and rental homes.

All our Safari Surf accommodations in Ayampe are either on the beach or mere steps from it. Some of our Ayampe lodging options have A/C, but due to the temperate overall climate in Ayampe, it’s not necessary. Typical daytime temps during the low season (our winter) hover around the mid to upper 70s and at night, they dip down into the high 60s to low 70s. During our summer season, the temperatures can get to the 90s during the day but cool off to the low 80s at night.

There are all kinds of cool shops and restaurants all within walking distance from any of our lodging options.
