Montañita Shopping - Shopping Montañita - Ecuador

Montañita is filled with shopping opportunities, whether you want to buy a custom surfboard, some beachwear, a hand-woven bracelet by hippies, or any other souvenir. In the town center, especially near the main intersections, tables overflow with people selling identical items, including pipes, hammocks, ashtrays, and jewelry made of shells. Prepare to be bombarded on the beach by wishful people and traveling artists selling anything under the sun.

If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind piece, though, stop by Soluna Artisana (Monday and Thursday-Sunday 11 a.m.-midnight. Ca. Segundo Rosales and Simpilio Santo), diagonally across from Soluna Café. This small shop is chock-full of eclectic items, including jewelry, dresses, paintings, sculptures and furniture, some of which are from India or China and others that are made by local artists or backpackers who have passed through town.

"Tagua 950" (daily 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Av. Villafuerte and 10 de Agosto. Cel: 09-9366-6484, URL: has a beautiful collection of designer tagua (a palm tree seed native to the area) products, including necklaces, rings, earrings and key chains. The friendly Espinel couple, who owns the company, runs a tagua workshop in nearby Manglaralto, where they work with 10 families from rural communities around Montañita.
