Safe travels - Andrew & Emily
Great beaches, amazing surf and delicious seafood – is it any wonder that we loved the coast of Ecuador so much? In fact, for us, it was one of the best parts of South America.
So, we're delighted to be able to offer our readers an exclusive chance to experience it for themselves and win an incredible seven-day Spanish and yoga immersion package for two at the beautiful Ohana Language School in Montañita!
Home to warm waters, consistent breaks and perfect sandy beaches, Montañita is a world class surf spot attracting beginners and pros alike. Throw in fantastic nightlife, great restaurants (have we mentioned the amaaazing pizza in town?) and a wonderfully laid-back vibe and it's easy to understand why this great little beach-town is a must-visit spot for any backpacker in Ecuador.
But long-time followers of Along Dusty Roads will know that we promote a style of travel which gives you more than just a tan and some funny stories; we think adventures should be all about enriching yourself and exposing yourself to new experiences and opportunities. This philosophy is 100% shared by Ohana Language School, who have created bespoke Spanish, yoga and surf packages which offer the chance to combine travel, learning and fun in a beautiful coastal setting. With certified native teachers leading small-classes, their Spanish lessons aim to help students gain confidence in using the language whilst enjoying all that Montañita has to offer.
So, if you’re planning your own South America adventure, what are you waiting for?! Vamonos!
