We flew to Manta in the evening and if it's your first time to San Lorenzo I would recommend taking a taxi or arranging transportation as it can be tricky to exit Manta in the dark if you don't know the roads. Everything else went above and beyond our expectations. The house is very large and comfortable - as advertised. The AC in the room is a nice escape from the tropical heat, especially if you are coming from Quito where the temperature is much more temperate. The pool, the beach and the views are simply amazing. The sunsets are postcard perfect. A trip to the lighthouse is a must. We found the staff - Miguel and Xavier to be very friendly and helpful. They only speak Spanish - so it can be challenging at times if you don't know the language - but they are eager to help on any requests. If you want to explore the coast, it's recommended to rent a car in Manta. A vehicle is also helpful to do any grocery shopping as there's nothing in San Lorenzo. Roads are nice and safety was never a concern. All in all a vacation that we would recommend to anyone. We can't wait to come back.
