About Donkey Den

The stunning beach views and quiet social atmosphere of this small beach side town make it the perfect place to relax for both retirees and backpackers. The beach is long, great for swimming, beautiful sunsets and long morning or evening walks. During the season it is one of the best places in the world to kitesurf. We are pet friendly and pets are on site. Sorry no children.

Accommodation Information

We have a small, friendly breakfast cafe from 8am until 11am every day. You have use of a full kitchen at all times.

Location Information

You can watch the whales from your porch during the season and be amazed by the skill of the kite surfers.

Santa Marianita is world famous for its kite surfing competition. We are located next door to one of the two professional kite schools. Arrangements are easily made for lessons.
Manta is a short collectivo ride away where there is a surprisingly vibrant nightlife on the weekends, great markets, supermarkets and much more.
