Add To Plan

Immerse yourself in the Ecuadorian culture at an afternoon tea and traditional dance performance at the lovely Hotel Oro Verde.

Depart from the pier for a brief drive through downtown Manta to the Hotel Oro Verde, a luxury resort overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Although the Swiss operate the hotel, it still has an Ecuadorian flair and the two influences make for a surprisingly harmonious blend, something you will experience firsthand during your afternoon tea.

While the canapés and sweets will vary depending on which ingredients are freshest, you might expect smoked salmon finger sandwiches, mango-filled pastries and banana tartlets. Take your time savoring the flavors, which are representative of Ecuadorian cuisine, and enjoying the luxurious surroundings in the beachfront Hotel Oro Verde.

Following the tea, an Ecuadorian dance troupe will perform a variety of modern and traditional dances that reflect the multicultural character of the country. You'll notice the influence of African rhythms and Andean beats as the performers gracefully dance across the stage in brightly colored costumes.

It's a captivating experience, so much so that you may be encouraged to try these ethnic Ecuadorian dances yourself. Feel free to step out on the stage after the show, as the dancers will be happy to teach you some of the steps. Afterwards, you'll drive back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes limited walking; however, transportation to and from the hotel is via a local chivas which requires a high step to access. Additionally, seating in the chivas is on wooden seats and they have no air-conditioning or P.A. system. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability.
