WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TODAY: Tonsupa is the quiet town and Atacames is the party town. Tonsupa has a flatter beach. The bus stops about 1/2 block from the condo. It will stop anywhere you want on the route and it will also pick you up anywhere on the route, just wave your arm. A 20 cent and 15 minute bus ride will take you into Atacames.
The bus passes though Tonsupa on the main highway. The main bus stop in Atacames is at 5 corners where 5 streets meet and most of the mototaxis hang out. You will know when you get there because usually all the passengers get off at this stop. Then a new group get on. It is 1/2 block from the town square where you'll find the local bank branch, church and other businesses. From the main bus stop you can take a bus to Same and Sua. There are many vendors in this area. Enjoy a bag of sliced mango for 50 cents.
This stop is also close to the footbridge that will take you to the beach. If you want the stop that is closer to the beach just stay on the bus until it takes you 1 block from the Malecon.
When you stroll the Atacames Malecon in the day it will be quiet. When you stroll it in the evening expect the bars to increase the volume of their music. In the evening take a taxi back to the condo...the price is very reasonable. Experience the 3 wheeled moto taxis. They are also reasonably priced. When you step away from the condo in Tonsupa you will experience restaurants, bars and mini markets. In the busy season more resaurants will open their doors. There is a restaurant and bar next door that is usually opened every day.

The apartment is in great shape, very comfortable and conveniently close to the beach, lots to do around that area. Great service, had a really good time with my friends. The pool area is also very nice and the view from the apartment is just gorgeous. The apartment has everything you need.

We rented the condo for a month. It was a nice place to stay and Julie made it even better. She went above and beyond in taking care of us. I can't say enough about Julie and her husband. The condo was nice sized we never felt crowded, although there was just the two of us there. The location really couldn't be beat. The building and the pool area were in excellent condition. It was the nicest pool I saw in Tonsupa. We really only had one negative about the condo, the furniture. I realize it's not a high end condo but the furniture was so uncomfortable that we had to go to the bedrooms and sit on the beds in the evenings. If the furniture is replace we will rent it for another month next year again! Thanks Julie you are the best! Read more
