01 Sneak Peek

What is it about?

Ecuador - Ayampe

Create Your Experience!

What makes Safari Surf’s program so unique and popular is we create customized inclusive packages that offer the ideal surf vacation experience that YOU are looking for.

Ecuador is also known as “The Heart of the Earth.” Once you visit you can really appreciate how true that is. From the diverse landscapes to the generous, smiling locals, you get the feeling that something special is surrounding this small country. Ecuador is an extremely diverse country, you can be driving through desolate, dry landscapes and within a small distance you can be in a lush tropical jungle. Ecuador has it all from the Amazon Rainforest to the Andes mountains to some of the best unknown beaches with uncrowded waves. It is home to many beautiful sights and towns, one of them being the quiet town of Ayampe.

Ayampe is one of those places where as you walk down the road you have that small town feeling mixed with the romance of a tropical paradise. Easy paced living is a way of life here, people take their time through the day, stopping to share words with friends or getting to know new faces that pass through the town. You can find local restaurants and small eateries that are run by local families for years, mixed with newer shops and restaurants from expats that now call Ayampe home. It is a quaint town surrounded by so much nature and culture that there is never a day when you have nothing new to do. Mix in a consistent, peaky beachbreak that goes on for miles and secret uncrowded point breaks and you have an ideal place to pass your time enjoying this beautiful country.
