Come in contact with the great outdoors in Esmeraldas
Sports and outdoor adventure sports in contact with the exuberant nature of the province of Esmeraldas are experiences that nourish the soul. Let us tell you some of the exciting things you can do from Green9…
Adventures for all tastes
Esmeraldas never disappoints. It seems to have been created to satisfy everyone’s spirit of adventure. Discover caves hidden beneath the high tide or waterfalls hidden among the lianas, rivers lost in a sea of mangroves and deserted solitary islands where your steps will feel like the first.
One of coastal Ecuador’s best biking routes begins right here in Green 9. You head west towards the very special Punta Galera, a scenic detour from the main highway south that runs 55 kilometers up and down a low elevation coastal mountain range, advancing to the shore itself, with several stops at picturesque fishing villages that invite you to explore, eat delicious food and get to know local livelihoods. You can visit several interesting beaches, beautiful viewpoints and reach Muisne to visit mangroves and explore the lonely and very special Isla Bonita.
Jogging on the beach
The extensive beach of Same is an excellent space to exercise your muscles early in the morning or as the sun sets… Our tents offer personal assistance and are located on the beach in case you need anything (also think yoga, meditation or any morning or evening exercise to decompress, as the the sea’s sacred breeze caresses your body).
Tennis and Golf
Take advantage of our well-appointed tennis courts, open from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, at a cost of $ 8 per hour. Green 9, as our name suggests, also offers access to an excellent nine-hole golf course that awaits beginners and experts alike.
The rates go from 40/person all day.
Golf equipment: USD 15 / day

Visit the highest mangroves in the world or discover a hole in the earth forest that emanates natural gas. Hikes to beautiful waterfalls or fabulous descents amid tropical forest, like the one that takes you to the magical beach of Caimito, await… excelent hiking for sure!
Mompiche is one of the best destinations in the country to learn to “surf”. You can take introductory classes, and even buy locally-shaped surfboards. Less than an hour from Green 9, start your surfing adventure and get to know one of the best waves in the country.
