Montanita for most people party town, for me yoga town!

sunny 29 °C

So Holly and I check out of the hostal and head to the bus station on a motor taxi.


We jump on a bus to Montanita, it's a few hours long and it was mentally busy. People on each others laps, standing.

We got there and Montanita was bussaling, lots of market stalls, street food stalls, it was busy but not in a frustrating way. I imagine at high season it would be horrible, probably worse than kosan road in thailand.


We knew where we wanted to stay, so we asked directions and headed there. It was nearly middayy and really fucking hot. We had to walk the whole length of the beach to get to this hostal. It felt like forever but realistically it was probably only about 20 minutes. Walking on the sand in 31 degrees and a huge backpack, it was a good work out!

We get to the hostal and I ask if they have 2 dorm beds available, they did! Then I ask for a beer. It was 11.40, that was good enough for me! I really liked the hostal, it had a bloody gorgeous feel to it. Everyone was chilled, friendly and just enjoying themselves.



We had a beer and chatted to Jackson who was really chilled and nice. Surfer dude from canada. He then showed us our dorm, we chucked our stuff down and then went and had a wonder and chilled on the beach.








At 5.30 we had booked yin yoga, which is a medatative yoga. It was really nice. In the evening there was movie night at the hostal. Before they put Rambo on we headed to town for some grub and a drink. Back to hostal to chill.


The following day we had an amazing breakfast melon and quinoa porridge and I had a cup of tea...amazing!


We then did yang yoga which was the hardest sort of yoga I have done before. A lot harder than bikram. It was so nice chilling and doing yoga with the sound of the sea in the background.

Holly and I went and had a fair few cocktails before I had to get on a bus back to Guiyquill. I got 2 dreadlocks and she got one. I got the sub and moon in my hair haha.


Tommy has warned me he's going to "cut that hippy shit out of your (my) hair" I love them though. I wanted to get a full head of dreads but thought it's prob best not to with Kate and Nicks wedding haha. I can just see Kates face now if I turned up with full dreaders.

After this Holly and I said our goodbyes and went our separate ways. I jumped on the bus to head back to Guiyquill and she stayed put in Montanita for a few days. I wanted to stay there but couldnt because I had my flight to Mexico 5am the following morning.
