About Bahia de Caráquez:
La Villa de San Antonio de Caráquez, known simply as Bahía de Caráquez or Bahía, is a coastal city in the Ecuadorian province of Manabí. The city is located on a sandy peninsula on the country's western coast at the mouth of the Río Chone. It has seen significant development during the last 15 to 20 years, particularly because it has become a vacation destination for people from Quito and Guayaquil.
Bahía de Caráquez sits on a peninsula where the Rio Chone empties into the Pacific Ocean. The city was once a thriving seaport that has morphed into the most attractive city on the coast. With beautiful beaches, neat parks, many attactions, a full range of aneminities, and a laid back attitude, Bahia is an ideal vacation destination.
On February 23, 1999 Bahia de Caraquez declared itself an Eco-city and has been working to maintain the title ever since. It seems to have paid off in a cleaner city and increased tourism, particularly among foreigners.
Across the Rio Chone is the city of San Vicente. Locals cross the river by boat or by the new bridge that was completed as of November 2010. Bahia differs greatly from San Vicente. The city features great condominiums and hotels making Bahia a popular tourist destination for the Ecuadorean elite. The city also boasts a well-known archeological museum, which displays artifacts found in the Ecuadorean state of Manabi including statues from the Valdivia culture as well as several other lesser-known historical communities.
