Location Casa Ceibo Boutique Hotel & Spa
Casa Ceibo is located just 73 kilometers (45 miles) south of the equator, in the coastal region of Manabi in northwestern Ecuador. It is discreetly nestled within the lush reforested mangroves along the beautiful Chone River estuary. The bay and Pacific Ocean can be reached in just a few minutes by boat or by car.
The hotel is situated on the outskirts of Bahía de Caráquez, a small seaside town of 30,000 inhabitants that is often frequented by vacationing Ecuadoreans.
Guests at Casa Ceibo will delight in exploring the hidden treasures of this unique area of Ecuador. The closeness of the Manabi region to the equator has resulted in an area that is one of the most biologically and ecologically diverse areas on the planet.
The Manabi region has everything: the Pacific Ocean, tropical rainforests, and cosmopolitan cities. Its luscious green countryside is teeming with plantations, remote picturesque villages, and fascinating cultural and archeological sites and attractions. Manabi never fails to impress.
How to Get There
The closest airport to the hotel is the Eloy Alfaro International Airport in Manta, which is used by both commercial and private airplanes. The hotel can arrange a taxi or minibus to collect guests from the airport. It’s a scenic hour-long journey, allowing guests a glimpse of Ecuador’s rural way of life.
There are three main routes to reach the hotel from Quito by car (it is of course possible to drive to the hotel from any city in Ecuador; we simple cite Quito as it has the country’s most important international airport).
From Quito via Mindo, Puerto Quito, Pedernales and Bahía de Caráquez.
From Quito via Santo Domingo, Pedernales and Bahía de Caráquez.
From Quito via Santo Domingo, El Carmen, Tosagua and Bahía de Caráquez.
The journey time from Quito is approximately five hours and 20 minutes. The new bridge over the Chone River in Bahía de Caráquez, which joins the north and south parts of the Manabi province, has fortunately cut approximately 120 kilometers from the journey.
