Punto Verde has dormitory style beds whilst also offering a separate private hut for couples . Our prices include breakfast April till December, with tea or coffee. WIFI is available to guests, as are the cooking facilities.

The gem of Punto Verde is without a doubt the view overlooking the beach and the town. Facing the beach, our large windows allow natural light to stream into the open-plan living area. This creates a peaceful and relaxing area for our guests.

Punto Verde is situated about a 5 minutes walk from the busy centre.
With Punto Verde you are in walking distance from the beach, parties and shops, whilst happily escaping any noise or crowds from town.

From Guayaquil Bus Terminal, located close to the Airport, CLP (Cooperativa de Transporte Libertad Peninsular) offers daily 6 and on sundays 9 direct connections to Montañita. You can also take busses from Santa Elena or any other place on the Ruta del Spondylus as they are all pass through Montañita. Arriving in Montañita ask to be dropped off at the junction north of Montañita at the statue of the surfer. You’ll see our Hostel up on the hill on the right hand side of the main road to Olón. Walk about 200 meters on the main road and take the first driveway on the right with the sign Punto Verde. Follow the path up the hill and here you will find us. Be aware that there are no streetlights on the way up. During dry season cabs may drive you up for 2$, but when it rains cabs can’t get up the hill.
Travel time from Guayaquil is about 3 hours, from Santa Elena 1½ hours and from Puerto Lopez 1 hour.
