We had a wonderful stay at La Rinco for two nights over New Year’s. As independent travelers with a car at our disposal, we found the best of both worlds at La Rinco: easy access to a wide mix of coastal towns (from the manic Montanita to much more laid back scenes in Ayampe etc) but also a feeling of...

La Rinco is a very nice and clean place, but what I like the most was the service! You are able to feel confortable, the guy who is the owner is always asking you if everything is ok and he recomends you places to eat and visit! Also he has great ideas to involve the community in a turism project.... More

The words that mostly describe the essence of the place are: peaceful, beautiful in its sights and nature surroundings and excellent in it´s warm and home-style service. Other features are that breakfast is great... More

We spend a week in La rinco in last April. Scenery is beautiful and because the location is a little bit off from the main road, it is an extremely peaceful place. Service and personnel was very friendly. We had very good time there. Renting a car in the coast was a good idea, you can see a lot of... More

La Rinco is located on a cliff with a beautiful view. It is the best place to relax and near Montanita and a number of beautiful beaches. The bus station is just a little hike up the road. At night we took a taxi back. We stayed at la casita which is beautifully designed with everything you need. They even... More

La Rinco is a unique place, different from any other options stretching from Montanita to Puerto Lopez. For starters, the view simply can't be described or shown in pictures, you have to be there to appreciate the bird eye perspective of the place. It is literally a hill on the sea so, in addition to the view, you will be... More

La rinco is well situated on the mountains near the coast at La Rinconada. You have a great view on the ocean and during whales season, you can see some whales jumping in the water from you room. It is situated between Montanita and Puerto Lopez and it is easy to get there by bus (20min). We unfortunately found out... More

I stayed 2 nights at la rinco. It is a gorgeous location overlooking a small fishing town and the ocean. It is peaceful and relaxing as you listen to the waves all day.
