Bahia de Caraquez Ecuador Picturesque Beach and Bay

If you like a peaceful bay with a picturesque coastline, you'll find it in Bahia de Caraquez. It is a very lovely town with beautiful views of the mountains. The town itself is clean and well kept compared to other seaside towns in Ecuador. We have a lot more to share with you of Bahia de Caraquez in our DIY Ecuador Coast Travel Guide! Until then enjoy the beach and bay of Bahia in this video. 


  1. This may look stupid, Frank and Angie, but most, if not all, of your beach videos were taken on cloudy days. Is this the norm? Just wondering. Thanks.

    1. No, it is not always cloudy at the beach. It depends on what time of year you go. It is winter in this video. Look at some of our older videos and you will see sunshine.

  2. Angie,
    I couldn't agree more. Although I have not been to Bahia Caraquez yet, I have visited Salinas for over two weeks a while back. It has the opportunity to be a great beach resort, but there are way too many gringos trying to take advantage of new Ex-Pats. Obviously this is just my opinion, but I found it odd that I was warned in Cuenca before I went, that this might be my opinion, after spending time in Salinas. My Ecuadorian friends were spot on in my humble opinion. Thanks.

  3. Hi,
    Love your videos. I tried to hit your contact button and it did not work. Anyway, I have been watching your Salinas videos old and new, and I want to know the name of the hostel with kitchenette you stayed at. Could you see the ocean from there? Is a place you could stay at comfortably for a month? Also, what is the name of the place you stayed on the 3rd floor overlooking the ocean from a street or two back from the main street? I ask because we are planning to visit in May and June. Thanks for any help you can give.
