Guest Access

Right on the Pacific Ocean, the Mazunte Apartment in the Posada Hibisco Cottage a slice of eco-tropical paradise that aims to provide the perfect blend of laid-back beach life and rustic jungle character – all with incredible ocean views from the entire hotel, a full kitchen, open-air bamboo & wooden architecture, and artisan details throughout. Posada Hibisco is nestled in the heart of the lush background of the charming fishing village of Mompiche, Ecuador. With the jungle as your backyard, you'll have plenty of opportunities for hiking, birdwatching, and exploring the exotic flora and fauna of the area. You might even catch a glimpse of some of the local wildlife, such as monkeys, iguanas, butterflies, and colorful tropical birds.

Other Details

Many rooms of Posada Hibisco require guests to climb stairs to access the bedrooms and the kitchen/dining area. Additionally, several rooms are designed so that their private bathrooms are accessible by an outdoors entrance. For guests sensitive to noise, please note that as along the entire Ecuadorian coast, street noise can be unpredictable - we provide earplugs just in case for the light sleepers out there. Feel free to contact us to determine which room best fits your accessibility needs.

Interaction With Guests

Truly, the star of Posada Hibisco is the location: directly on Mompiche Beach, you can easily ignore the liveliness of the town and pretend the entire bay is yours, alone. Spend your days exploring the quaint streets, meeting the friendly locals, and experiencing the authentic culture of this beautiful area. After a day full of adventure, enjoy a refreshing drink on the outdoor patio while you listen to the sounds of the jungle and the crashing waves of the ocean.

We at Posada Hibisco are available to interact with our guests as much, or as little, as they like. We try to create a friendly, inclusive, and helpful "community" type vibe in all of our rentals.


The tiny fishing village of Mompiche has only recently been "discovered" for its world-class surfing point-- producing the longest warm-water left in South America. As a result, it still retains much of the rich Afro-ecuadorian culture that makes Esmeraldas Province such a memorable experience for visitors. Nestled at the southern end of a gorgeous crescent bay and surrounded by the jungles of Mache-Chindul Ecological Reserve, adventures for nature-lovers are endless here.

In addition to the surf, Mompiche has a charming and laid-back village vibe where you can truly disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Mompiche is everything you dream of in a tropical escape: sleepy, uber-friendly locals, cheap/fresh everything, on a gorgeous crescent bay that is still not part of the mainstream tourist trail.

Scenic Views

Situated at the end of Mompiche's largely undeveloped Malecon, with what is hands-down the best view of its surf point and crescent bay, Posada Hibisco offers an idyllic location for your stay. Watch the artisan fishing boats coming and going from your balcony, contemplate the waves without lifting your head from the pillow, or hang out with fellow adventurers at any of the bar/surf gathering spots on the main road. 

Mompiche is known for its world-class surf breaks, which attract surfers from all over the world – allegedly home to South America's longest left-handed wave. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner looking to catch your first wave, you'll find the perfect spot to surf just steps away from our hotel. Watch the waves roll in or enjoy the fishing boats launch in the morning over a cup of coffee, and appreciate the knowledge that you are staying in the most convenient location in Mompiche.

Getting Around

Unlike other hostels or rentals which can require a drive into town, you can get anywhere in downtown from Posada Hibisco in about 15 minutes.  Everything in Mompiche can be easily accessed by foot. The town consists of a friendly village that takes approximately 5 minutes to cross, the surf point that made Mompiche famous is a 5-10 minute walk past colorful fishing boats down a beautiful tropical beach, and mile upon mile of picturesque oceanfront hikes are available for exploring both to the north and south of Mompiche proper.
