Highly-colourful figure
mar 2020
This is a massive highly-colourful figure and monument to the Panama hat makers of Ecuador. It’s worth a photo, but nothing spectacular.

Interesting and Topical Statue
sty 2020
Like most, we only saw this statue as we traveled past it on our tour. It is important as this area in Ecuador is (or claims to be at least) the original inventors of the Panama hat.

Interesting Statue

She is very large, but is in the middle of a very busy roundabout. I saw her while passing in a taxi. I am not sure there is a way to truly look her over.

Huge Pamama Hat Girl Statue
sty 2020
This very colorful tall statue to located at a roundabout on the highway between Manta and Montecristi. It can only really be seen and photographed as you travel around the roundabout in a vehicle.

BOTTOM LINE: Our driver drove around the statue twice for us. The statue is a much prettier woman than you will see in real life (usually quite senior) making the traditional Ecuador "Panama" hot. This region of the country claims to be the original inventors of the "Panama Hot" which was then exported to Panama. You will find these hats everywhere from $10 to $300 each depending on the quality. The more expensive hats take many weeks to over a month to make. The woman is shown leaning on her chest on a post with a hump on the top that is used to assist in building a hat. It is a unique tribute to the women of the country who labor to make these famous hats. The roundabout is pretty baron with dirt and weeds, not very attractive. SO, should you go out of your way to see this monument? No. not really, just a quick photo drive-by is all you need. MY RATING: 5/10

Interesting statue, in the middle of the traffic circle. I would have liked to get a better picture of the statue, but was in a tour van and could not stop. Very good representation of how the hats are actually made.

Cool but not amazing...

It is a cool statue but not a wonder of the world. Still adds a lot of character to the road and the town.

I thought this was just an “R” rated statue, but later, when visiting a Panamá hat factory- that’s how they are really made, sans cleavage. Definitely worth a trip around the roundabout.

Great Hand Made Product
sie 2019
Everyone thinks the Panama Hat comes from Panama, it doesn’t! These hats are made in Ecuador with the higher quality ones being made by hand. They can range up to thousands of $’s and take 6 months to make but the quality can be judged by how fine the weave is. If you go and see them made don’t be afraid to bargain but expect to pay good money for a finely woven example. Well worth visiting.

Cute but ...
wrz 2019
The lady is located on a roundabout as you enter Montecristi. It is cute, and taking a minute to stop and take a photo is worthwhile, it not something to make a special trip to see.
