The Spondylus Route in Ecuador is a government initiative to promote tourism in the coastal profile, it aims to inform tourists about the dozens of wonderful beaches offered by the provinces of Esmeraldas, Manabi, Santa Elena and Guayas along the E15 Highway Trunk of the Pacific or as it is known worldwide as the Pacific Way.
The route of the Sun has a road infrastructure of the first order, it is also part of the Spondylus Route circuit, which is integrated by other regions. Some “initiatives” define it with other names to limit its extension, for example, one of these names is Santa Elena – Manabi Route.
What beaches does The Spondylus Route have?
From north to south it crosses 4 provinces of the Ecuadorian coast. However, there are more prominent destinations that we do not want to leave out of the list, so we present all the beaches from Esmeraldas that borders Colombia and ends in Guayas, defining a new concept regarding the Route of the Sun in Ecuador.
