Getting To and Away from Puerto López

Although Puerto López is situated in a relatively remote location, the town is reasonably well connected to other parts of Ecuador. The nearest airport, in Manta, is two hours to the north, though many people chose to fly to Guayaquil and make their way up the coast from there.

From Puerto López, it is very easy to travel by bus to destinations up and down the coast. Cooperativa Manglaralto buses run every 15-30 minutes, starting at 4:35 a.m., both north to Manta (2 hr, $3) and south to Santa Elena (2.5 hr, $3), passing through Montañita after 1.25 hours. Buses leave from Avenida Machalilla, near the corner of General Córdova, diagonal from the church.

Buses run hourly to Guayaquil (4 hr, $5), with the last bus leaving at 5:05 p.m. There are also five buses per day to Quito from Puerto López (11 hr, $13). All buses to Quito also stop in Portoviejo. Reina del Camino has a direct overnight bus service between Quito and Puerto López, which leaves from Quito at 7:30 p.m. and from Puerto López at 8 p.m. The buses in Quito leave from Reina del Camino's office at 18 de Septiembre between Manuel Larrea and Pérez Guerrero. For those who would prefer to travel during the day, Carlos Aray has a 6:10 a.m. bus to Quito and Reino del Camino has an 8 a.m. bus to Quito.

Prices and times change regularly, though; if you have to catch a bus, inquire at the individual bus companies to find out the exact times buses will be passing through the town.
