World's Coolest Surf Towns

World's Coolest Surf Towns: Montañita

Courtesy of Hanga-Roa Hostel

Montañita, Ecuador

Backpackers, sun-seekers, and seasoned surfers from around the globe roam the dirt streets of this thatched-roof village. The tropical hideaway on the Pacific coast is speckled with palm trees, jewelry hawkers, and low-cost accommodations like Hanga Roa hostel, with its toes in the sand at La Punta, the town’s famous surf point. Eat from the bicycle ceviche stands that roll along the beach, and come sundown, join the wriggling masses at the bars and discos that thump well into the night.
