After leaving the Panama Canal we headed south to our next port Manta, Ecuador, the home of tuna fishing, Panama hats and tagua nut buttons and carvings. This was our third visit to this port, (see Manta, 2014 and Manta 2008 for other pictures), so we took the shuttle into town to visit the small craft market in the town square. At the market there were vendors of tagua nut carvings and of coarse Panama Hats.
