Now let’s look at how to earn with pizza in Ecuador… or wherever you are.


PIZZAREPA are served in Bogota Colombia. Why not an equivalent in Ecuador?

Looking for ways to earn extra income when you live in Ecuador or abroad?

A reader responded to a recent message on Ecuador Micro Business Spaghetti and Pizza at our www.garyascott.com site and wrote: Gary,  Read your pizza story today and had to share a delicious experience I had in Colombia a couple of years ago:  PIZZAREPA!  Arepas (Colombian tortillas) with all kinds of pizza toppings were sold out of a small store-front with only a counter for seating. A bright pink Vegas-style neon sign lit the entry and advertised its location to the whole town. Culture fusion at its best.

I also have to say that you are hitting the marketing “nail on the head” with creating an international club.  That’s what we want: to belong and to be guided through this “deconstruction.”  Thank you for being ahead of the curve like this; you are an inspiration to me.

There are some thriving pizza places in Ecuador. The key to creating one is location and uniqueness.

Take Gabriel  Graziani’s  tiny beach shack pizza restaurant.


He serves delicious pizza and lazagna.


in his hand made oven.


He collects all the fresh ingredients and makes the food while you are there.


Gabriel is the real deal when it comes to authentic Italian Pizza. See him preparing at  our You Tube

One evening the Miss Ecuador contestants even visited Gabrielle.


I hope they had as much fun as we do when we visit there at night. Gabriel’s rustic restaurant is right next to Palmazul and the Vistazul condos. 

On the subject of the Vistazul condos here is an update.  There are only three units left for sale.

Here is the restaurant at the Vistazul club house Palmazul…


where a Sunday dinner can run $17… but with a view.

Right on the beach…


for special occasions and fine dining this is the place.

Also you cannot beat this beach at Vistazul.


The developer of Vistazul Kjetil Haugan wrote this note:

Gary, Vistazul is doing well. We have done some sales lately that should give us enough cash to keep on working at least the rest of the year. We have done great progress on the landscaping.

As I mentioned to you last time we plan to do some one level units in front of building 2 & 1.  I’ll  ask the architect to make the drawings.

Right now there are 5 units unsold but had two of them are reserved.

This project has taken longer than planned… due to the 2007-2008 slowdown but in my opinion still offers the best value on the coast.

Ecuador Real Estate Mid Coast Tour

Mid Ecuador coastal real estate offers sun and sea… beauty and convenience from Manta to North of Bahia at a low cost.

Here are delegates overlooking Crucita.


Ecuadorliving.com was the first website to recommend Ecuador real estate nearly two decades ago and we continue to assist Ecuador Living Club members in arranging Ecuador tours as the most efficient way to learn about Ecuador’s real estate market.

Ecuador real estate markets have evolved to the point that group tours are counter productive. When Ecuador Living began,  there was not enough property… easily reached… for sale.   Little English was spoken and the properties were often hard to reach and spread far apart.

Ecuador real estate group tours helped readers reach these properties.

Today there are many properties and group tours can inhibit zeroing in on specific wants and needs.

Ecuador Living’s Real Estate Tour service helps its members create custom tours that fit each person’s schedule and particular desires.

The personalized tours are like AAA Trip Tics and help in three ways.

#1: The dates of your tour can be set to fit your schedule.  Ecuador Living makes sure you don’t book a tour on holidays or times when you would not be able to see property.

#2:  The tour service helps you zero in on your particular needs in real estate so you do not want to spend time viewing properties that are not of interest to you.   Once we have your tour dates and specifications, we contact brokers, developers and sellers of real estate in advance to help focus your search.

#3: You can turn these tours into adventures and overall Ecuador introductory tours so you see many different areas of Ecuador as you wish.

Ecuador Personalized Real Estate Tours are the most efficient and inexpensive way to get an overall view of Ecuador real estate.

Because we are publishers who owe our loyalty to our readers and not real estate agents, you can be assured that the tours are based on your wishes, not on any broker’s desire to sell a specific property.   Ecuador Living does not participate in any proceeds, commissions etc. from real estate sales.

For example if you only want to view farms with acreage and want to see farms in three areas… such as Cuenca, Imbabura and the coast we can help you organize a tour for this.

A recent article entitled “Building a charming destination”  by Paola Vellejo in the Bienes Raices Clave (Key Real Estate), Ecuador’s leading real estate magazine shows how experienced we are in Ecuador real estate.

A translation of the article says:    In conversation with Britain’s Steve Marchant, familiar with the housing boom of Cotacachi, you can see the origin of the phenomenon of its growing popularity as a destination for retirees is the result of the sum of a series of coincidences that inevitably arise from one person: Gary Scott.    Scott was the spark that ignited the housing boom of Cotacachi for retirees.
