Machala, the capital of El Oro Province, is an important city for Ecuador’s banana production. In fact, because of the area’s mass banana production and exportation, it is sometimes referred to as the “banana capital of the world”. There is even a World Banana Festival in late September that includes the Banana Queen of Machala contest. Although Machala is an important hub for business in Ecuador, and thus home of a decent amount of conventions and meetings, it is not often frequented by foreigners. Most travelers pass through between the border and Guayaquil but there are definitely worse places to stop over if you decide to linger and it’s certainly preferable to staying in Huaquillas.
