    Sara is a really nice and interesting person, and her house is just beautiful! There is so much artwork about the place that my eyes never got tired of looking around. Our room was clean and quite charming with spotless floors, shelves, and a really stylish bathroom with reliable hot water.

    The property looks right out into the ocean and down the malecón and is especially lovely at night. The kitchen, by the way, is probably the most beautiful kitchen I've ever entered in my life. I think it's fair to say it's my dream kitchen and I want one just like it! The house/property is also secure.

    I would (and hopefully will!) stay here again someday. Thanks for everything, Sara!

    I much prefer the malecon of La Libertad to the one in Salinas. It is well kept, even sidewalks and the atmosphere is family fun. A new park at one end with water features and soon to be library.

    The other end has a couple restaurant bars that overlook the fishing port where you can watch the fishermen bring in their catch. In between is shopping, dining, a second park. Clean bathrooms available, some entertainment, places to sit have a drink or ice cream.

    You can swim on the beaches during low tide; high tide has the water come right up to the break wall. You can also fish off the outer break walls.

    Modern Mall in La Libertad. Took a day trip down from Olon in a cab. The shopping center pretty much has all you would need.

    We were en route from Salinas to Guayaquil and our driver asked if we'd be interested in this museum, which was right along the way. We were the only visitors and the museum staff walked us through the one room space that ranges from the Paleocene age (65 million years through 54 million years) forward. The artifacts in each era were very well preserved and varied in type. My favorites were the mastodon bones and the giant sloth skeleton. It is missing the neck and pelvis but otherwise complete. Huge! It was found in La Libertad about two miles from the museum, which I found amazing. It takes about 30 minutes to see the place but is well worth the stop.

    Cautivo Beach is a highly underrated stretch of beach in La Libertad. It is over a mile long, with a width that leaves plenty of space even when the tide is high. It is an excellent running beach during low tide as there is a long flat hardpack making for great barefoot running. During holidays and weekends, there are vendors selling drinks and snacks.

    I really enjoyed this peaceful way of whale watching. The teak deck enhances the touch with nature. Only to get out of the harbor, Arnaud, the Belgian captain, used the engine. After that it was all sails!!

    I also did a 4 day sailing trip to Isla de la Plata. Spending the night in such a secluded peaceful area, without any light or sound pollution was DIVINE! Snorkeling in Ayangue was also part of this trip.
