1. Savor its scrumptious and various cuisine
The locals encouraged to consume at the Arsenal cafe and the truth is we beloved it. It was just one of the most scrumptious lunches we have had on our street journey of Ecuador. The food stuff in Puerto Jeli is not low-cost compared to other compact towns in Ecuador, the dishes are all over $10 to $15 but the portions are significant and the quality of the foodstuff is high. We tried out the fish casserole and the seafood rice we preferred it so a lot that we are scheduling a return excursion just for the food items. The normal dishes of the region are: Shrimp ceviche, blended (conch and shrimp), conch ceviche, breaded sea bass, shrimp, fried fish, roasted conch, sailor sweat, seafood soup, seafood octopus, grilled octopus, and rice with conch.
Advisable places to eat: Hola la Ola, El Arenal y La Choza del Lobo.
