Overview

The Toquilla Expedition – Ecuador

Kontiki Expeditions is an all-inclusive Boutique Sea Expedition along the coastline of Ecuador with all the comforts of a luxury yacht, reimagined to offer a small number of visitors a dreamy stay.

Both Toquilla & Spondylus Expeditions are designed for 8 days/7 nights, with various itineraries to explore and get connected with the beauty of Ecuadorian nature and culture. Travel aboard the yacht Wayra to remote locations and unique scenery, giving you a chance to interact with new surroundings along the American coast.

The Toquilla Route, or the northern route, starts in Manta every Sunday afternoon. Toquilla takes its name from the traditional toquilla straw hats made in Ecuador since the 1600’s. Mompiche, Bahía de Caráquez, Manta, Isla de la Plata, Machalilla and Zaruma are some of locations that we will explore during our sea adventure.

Get to know the culture, tradition and gastronomy of native communities from within, always in the company of our expert crew and guides. Discover magical locations where people’s warmth and heartfelt attentions will become the main reason to come back.

Boat expeditions along unexplored routes covering forests and landscapes of unmatched beauty, marine flora and fauna, pristine beaches, ecological reserves and the true treasures that make Kontiki Expeditions the best adventure destination.

Diving in Isla de la Plata, whale-watching in Salango or enveloping oneself in a tropical jungle after celebrating an ancestral purification ritual are some of the activities that our guests can enjoy.

Kontiki Expeditions is the perfect experience for people who travel to go “beyond” a destination. It is for those who want to be swept away by adventure on a wellness expedition, who want an immersive conscious experience.

Please Note: make the yacht Wayra all yours with friends and family for a more personalized experience. Both Toquilla & Spondylus Expeditions are offered for your group, but why not make use of Kontiki’s flexibility and decide for a tailor-made expedition specially designed in accordance with Kontiki Expeditions.

Overview

The Toquilla Expedition – Ecuador

Kontiki Expeditions is an all-inclusive Boutique Sea Expedition along the coastline of Ecuador with all the comforts of a luxury yacht, reimagined to offer a small number of visitors a dreamy stay.

Both Toquilla & Spondylus Expeditions are designed for 8 days/7 nights, with various itineraries to explore and get connected with the beauty of Ecuadorian nature and culture. Travel aboard the yacht Wayra to remote locations and unique scenery, giving you a chance to interact with new surroundings along the American coast.

The Toquilla Route, or the northern route, starts in Manta every Sunday afternoon. Toquilla takes its name from the traditional toquilla straw hats made in Ecuador since the 1600’s. Mompiche, Bahía de Caráquez, Manta, Isla de la Plata, Machalilla and Zaruma are some of locations that we will explore during our sea adventure.

Get to know the culture, tradition and gastronomy of native communities from within, always in the company of our expert crew and guides. Discover magical locations where people’s warmth and heartfelt attentions will become the main reason to come back.

Boat expeditions along unexplored routes covering forests and landscapes of unmatched beauty, marine flora and fauna, pristine beaches, ecological reserves and the true treasures that make Kontiki Expeditions the best adventure destination.

Diving in Isla de la Plata, whale-watching in Salango or enveloping oneself in a tropical jungle after celebrating an ancestral purification ritual are some of the activities that our guests can enjoy.

Kontiki Expeditions is the perfect experience for people who travel to go “beyond” a destination. It is for those who want to be swept away by adventure on a wellness expedition, who want an immersive conscious experience.

Please Note: make the yacht Wayra all yours with friends and family for a more personalized experience. Both Toquilla & Spondylus Expeditions are offered for your group, but why not make use of Kontiki’s flexibility and decide for a tailor-made expedition specially designed in accordance with Kontiki Expeditions.

Guayaquil, Salinas, Isla Santa Clara, Puyango, Isla de la Plata, Manta and Bahía de Caráquez are some of locations that we will explore during our sea adventure.

Get to know the culture, tradition and gastronomy of native communities from within, always in the company of our expert crew and guides. Discover magical locations where people’s warmth and heartfelt attentions will become the main reason to come back.

Boat expeditions along unexplored routes covering forests and landscapes of unmatched beauty, marine flora and fauna, pristine beaches, ecological reserves and the true treasures that make Kontiki Expeditions the best adventure destination.

Diving in Isla de la Plata, whale-watching in Salango or enveloping oneself in a tropical jungle after celebrating an ancestral purification ritual are some of the activities that our guests can enjoy.

Kontiki Expeditions is the perfect experience for people who travel to go “beyond” a destination. It is for those who want to be swept away by adventure on a wellness expedition, who want an immersive conscious experience.

Please Note: make the yacht Wayra all yours with friends and family for a more personalized experience. Both Toquilla & Spondylus Expeditions are offered for your group, but why not make use of Kontiki’s flexibility and decide for a tailor-made expedition specially designed in accordance with Kontiki Expeditions.
