A day in Crucita Beach Manabí One of the most desirable characteristics when thinking about the beach is the weather. Sunny days and soft sand come to mind, and that we find in abundance in one of the most visited areas by locals and foreigners: the beaches of Manabí province. Within its vast territory there are several that deserve to be visited, even for only a day, as is the case of Playa Crucita. Its extensive sea line welcomes a large number of visitors and offers many options for entertainment. One of them is to enjoy leisure, cool off in the sea, and lose track of time until the sun sets. Another one is to take advantage of the fact that it is the ideal place to satisfy the desire for sports. One of the main attractions is to climb the hill and make paragliding, flying over a beautiful landscape where the blues of sky and sea blend into the horizon, while experiencing a different perspective of the beach. Flying in paragliding is done in the company of experts in the sport, who do not skimp on safety measures and seek the enjoyment of all. Crucita Beach has been host of paragliding championships, since its friendly geographical and climate characteristics have made of this coastal corner a naturally well-designed track to fly. You cannot miss the boat rides or buoy fun, among other water activities planned for children or adults, for lovers of extreme sports or for those who want to relax with a long boat ride. There are also dry sports such as classic volleyball or beach soccer, and there is always the alternative of being a mere observer of all this activity that unfolds before your eyes in a scenario of pure fun. The intensity of the sun and its gentle pass thru the sky are the parameters that reflect the time of day. The tones of the sky begin to change, gradually leaving their deep blue hue to transform into an intense reddish tone, in a spectacle of colors that frames indescribable sunsets when the day comes to an end. Crucita Beach is approximately 40 minutes away from Manta and 20 minutes from Portoviejo, capital of Manabí, traveling by land. Its location allows adventurers to nearby beaches, such as Santa Marianita and San Mateo, recommended for their beautiful landscapes and activities that makes them unique within the Ecuadorian coast.
