AN EXTRAORDINARY LODGE IN AN EXTRAORDINARY LOCATION

Manta, Ecuador, is the most important tuna fishing port on the Eastern Pacific Ocean. For more than fifty years American Fisheries have chosen Manta to develop their industrial facilities. Likewise, there are several other enterprises engaged in exporting food products and commodities to the United States.

Recently, an American Military Base was established and had begun their operations to help control drug trafficking activities and illegal immigration toward the United States. Three are quite a few American citizen, military and civilian as well, living in the city.

Regarding sport fishing, it is important to mention that Manta has always been an important place. We need just to mention Jorge "Pancho" Jurado and his 1,014, 17 years world record, blue marlin caught out in Manta on May 12, 1985.

The waters around "Isla de la Plata", which is about 25 miles off Manta, had registered many world fishing records, including several billfishes, groupers and the current Makerel Pacific Sierra established on March 24, 1990.

It is worth mentioning that most of this fishing efforts were made from Salinas, 90 miles away, but now we are doing it from Manta.

We have opened the operation of a Sportfishing Center that provides exclusively Hatteras and Bertram, first class hotel and accommodations at affordable prices and a crew with more than 20 years of experience. All of our equipment is Penn International, and we also have some Finn Noors reels.

We have a daily Boeing 727/200 service to Manta, whose airport has been just optimized as part of an American- Ecuadorian Agreement and is technically able to operate every day during the 24 hours.

The United States Dollar is the Ecuadorian legal currency which gives the country a monetary stability while facilitate our visitors' excursion who do not have to worry about exchange rates.

We have begun our activities from February 2002 an and we are sure that our fishing package (accommodation, boats, crew, travel fares) will be a sensation.

Our fishing schedule will begin at 05:00h, departing from the docks, start fishing at 06:30h and returning to shore at 17:00h.

We can also organize shared tours for Salinas and Manta, and all of the "Marlin Boulevard" which begins in Cabo Blanco, Perú up to the south of Colombia, and also organize excursions to cities in the Highlands, as Quito and Cuenca, both declared World Heritage by the UNESCO, to Guayaquil, the principal industrial and commercial center of Ecuador.
