The SpaceHostal Puerto Engabao is the only place in the Playas-Engabao area run by local surfers. The hostel features clean & spacious rooms with fans & mosquito nets, a fully equipped kitchen, BBQ, WIFI, laundry, common area, garden & hammocks. Public transportation to nearby breaks & beaches. Guest AccessThe rooms are spacious & clean, yet rustic in style, with mostly 100 % cotton linens.The kitchen is cleaned twice a day and is complete with a blender, and an oven for those smoothie and pizza lovers. We have a BBQ outdoors & fresh fish & shrimp is readily available to buy, directly from the small artisanal fishing boats. If you don’t know how to clean fish we can show you! As for eating out there are several local restaurants close by that offer typical Ecuadorian dishes at an affordable price, as well as an unfinished rooftop terrace with a great view of the spectacular sunsets that Puerto Engabao has to offer. The only hostel in Engabao run by surfers for surfers! Located in the small fishing village of Puerto Engabao and is along with General Villamil Playas the closest beach to Ecuador's biggest city Guayaquil. We try to interact with the guests as much as we can, and take them surfing to other waves around the area when there is enough swell for them to work. We can provide you with info on where to eat/buy food, in our village and in Playas where we do our weekly shopping. Interaction with GuestsOf course we love to give you information about where and when to surf, eat (yummy fish soup in playas, pies...etc.) and good places to visit in the rest of Ecuador! The NeighborhoodPuerto Engabao which is part of an indigenous ‘comuna’, is still an authentic rural Ecuadorian village yet it is close to the town of Playas, & Ecuador's largest city, Guayaquil. Here you will experience the cows, horses, pigs, and donkeys wandering by the house at all hours. It’s a great place for surfing Mon-Fri because there is usually not a crowd and for the more inexperienced surfers there is a fun beach break further south of the point. Weekends may get quite crowded because of the Guayaquil surfers, but your best bet is always to surf at noon since the locals have lunch then. It's a very safe little community and the neighborhood is comprised of a blend of indigenous people, Ecuadorians living there for a long time, weekenders from Guayaquil, and some foreigners. Getting AroundFrom Guayaquil: The hostel can easily be reached from the Guayaquil airport & ‘terminal terrestre’ bus terminal. Taxi from the airport directly to the hostel can either be prearranged by us or you can get a cab at the airport. The cost is around $50-$60 no tip necessary. Once you reach Puerto Engabao tell the driver to turn right after the bambu church following the surfboard signs until you reach us 3 blocks down. The whole trip is about 1.5 hours. The bus terminal is a 10 min walk from the airport or you can take a taxi for $5. Take the Villamil or Posorja bus to Playas at a cost of $3 and takes 2 hours. From Playas, you can either take a bus or ‘camioneta’ to Puerto Engabao for $0.75 or you can take a taxi for $5 ($6-$8 after sun down). Playas: To get the buses or ‘camioneta’ go to ‘la tienda de Don Lucho’ diagonally to the right in front of the Villamil bus station or by the ‘el tia’ supermarket. The buses are green and say Engabao with a surfer painted on the side. The ‘camionetas’ are just pick up trucks. The trip takes about 30 min depending on how many stops they make. Do not get off in the first village of Engabao, tell the driver you are going to Puerto. When in Puerto (the second village)you can tell the driver if your Spanish is good enough to turn left at the bambu church, directly to our hostel! “Vira a la derecha despues de la iglesia, y va largo hasta la casa de Daniel, dos cuadras mas alla, por favor”. Montanita: Take the bus to the ‘terminal terrestre’ of Guayaquil. There is a shorter route, but it is a bit complicated so please email or call for details. Accessing other beaches in Playas area: In ‘Puerto Engabao’ you can easily access other breaks and beaches in Playas by taking the bus or ‘camionetas’ for $0.75. They both run on a regular basis until 8:30 PM. To visit the waves of ‘el faro’ and ‘el pelado’ you can get a ‘camioneta’ for about $5 which takes 10 minutes. Within Playas city center all taxis cost $1, and the ‘mototaxis’ or ‘tuc tuc’ cost $0.50 for up to 4 people. *Bring change. Change is always a problem in Ecuador, but especially in rural areas such as Engabao. A good place to break a $20 is at the supermarket. Other Things to NoteOur family of four includes Daniel and Nadija from the Swedish surf town of Varberg (yes, it exists), as well as two little ones. Daniel has been surfing Playas and its surroundings for plus 25 years, but has also traveled quite a bit. He is full of knowledge about the waves and will often take you on surf trips to surrounding waves as well as recommend other hostels owned by his friends throughout Ecuador and Peru. Magic Seaweed is always wrong about tides so please don't quote them as your source, just ask. If you are shy INOCAR is way more reliable. :)
