General

Estero de Platano is a really small village, just a few houses and a restaurant (I won't recommend to eat there).
There is no place to spend the night there, so make sure is just a one day trip!

- Estero is really one of the best waves in Esmeraldas!!!... You just need to go in the good season waves... in the south-west sweel while the level of power is better... for the wind it is always good because this beach is in the middle of two mountai
