    Ecuadorian Beach Transport

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These motorcycles, which are often times just bicycles without motors, are found along the streets in Manta as well as in the smaller beach towns south of Manta. This particular bicycle was ferrying folks from one of the popular beaches in San Mateo back into town. Cost of a ride of about 2 kilometers or so was between $ 1 and $ 2. In Ecuador, the U.S. Dollar is the legal currency.

    Bussed Off the Pier

    by grandmaR Updated Feb 25, 2009

    Everyone on the cruise ship has to take a bus off the pier - either a tour bus which goes from the pier to the destination, or a shuttle bus to the entrance of the port or to a nearby shopping center

    When we took the shuttle to the entrance, on the way back the van had a drawing on it that reminded me of the Trix rabbit. The name of the van is Trans Rabbit

    There are also city buses within the city. The long distance bus station is behind the Central Bank. Frequent bus service to Guayaquil (4 1/2 hours), ticket value around US$5.00. To Quito (about 10 hours), ticket value around US$7.00. To Portoviejo (1 hour), ticket value around US$1.00. To Jipijapa (1 hour), ticket value around US$1.30. To Bahía de Caráquez (about 3 1/2 hours), ticket value around US$2.50. To Esmeraldas (8 1/2 hours), ticket value around US$7.20. To Santo Domingo (5 hours), ticket value around US$6.20.

    Locals of course often use the two wheeled transportation, and you can rent cars, but taxis are cheap
