Known as the most important harbor in the Province of Manabi, it is located northwest of Portoviejo.

Until recently it was only known for its important tuna fishing fleet, the production and bottling of vegetable oil and commercialization of Panama Straw Hats.

Now it is a very beautiful and popular city among natives and foreigners, the visits of cruise ships full of tourists confirm it. The air  base which was rented to the US Air Force by the Ecuadorian government for antidrug operations from 1978 to 2009 and the construction of modern hotels have improved Manta's economy and transformed the city into an important international tourist destination.

In this city you can volunteer in:

  • teaching english in primary schools and high schools,
  • internships in medical centers,
  • helping in day care centers
On weekends you can enjoy the wonderful weather, the landscapes, the sunrises and sunsets on the beautiful beaches, the night life of the town and the walks on the pier, all of this while you practice Spanish with your host family.
