One of the best things about staying in Ayampe is the sunsets. Every day - at 6:15pm - most of the town converges on the beach or balconies to watch the spectacle. At first the sun burns golden yellow, still surprisingly high in the sky at 6pm. As it sinks it begins to turn a bloody red and its descent becomes more rapid. It dips a toe into the Pacific ocean and then plunges in, extinguishing itself behind the horizon.
