Below is Muisne, Esmeraldas Province, Ecuador

Muisne We took the boat over the river to the seashore and took a tuk-tuk tour, with strangers (everything the guidebooks
say not to do) to the mangroves. The mangroves use to be a big feature and the livelihood of the locals until a decade ago when some large shrimp farms set up in the area and chopped through the mangroves and destroyed 90 % of them. Now locals do not have work and the shrimp farms are going belly-up do to disease (their karma).   Muisne is one hour south of Same where the coastal road disappears into water across from Muisne, a small island marking the border between Esmeraldas and Manabi provinces.
