Montañita Beach Life – a documentary film 1/4
For several decades, Montañita – a beach town in Ecuador – had been a little-heard-of destination known only by surfers and off-the-beaten-path travellers. But whoever passed through it was left with indelible memories. The town has a unique vibe that is palpable as soon as you enter. You see everyone at ease, smiling, eager to make friends and have fun. Whoever you are, wherever you come from – you can’t but dive into this vibe and become like one of these chilled beach bums. The place is addictive and that is because happiness is addictive. So a word of warning – do not make firm plans for your return, because most visitors overstay and some never leave.
