San Marianita Beach, Ecuador.

This is a paid ad from the developers of  Casa Blanca condos.


This could be your sunset on Ecuador’s San Marianita Beach.

The Ecuador beach landscape is changing but values are still terrific both for living and for rentals.  Merri and I could fill our rental units there ten times over at this stage.

Now a Canadian custom home builder is creating a special situation at San Marianita Beach.

Here is the note that Frank Thibault recently sent me.

Gary,  have prepared a free 16 page report on opportunity in Santa Marianita  a small fishing village about 20 minutes south of the city of Manta. There is a long sandy beach, over two miles long and nearly 900 feet wide here.

The beach is rarely crowded and though Santa Marianita is just a small fishing village it is world renowned for Kite surfing.  Kite surfers come from all over the world, even as far as Germany (great for rental potential).

Why do they come? Because it is one of the best kite surfing landscapes in the world.

Whale watching season is also special from June to September.

We did our first trade show here in Ottawa Last weekend at the Ottawa Travel show  over 17,000 people came, it was a good event. We launched and presented Ocean Dream Properties Casa Blanca Hotel and Condo  at the show.

You can see a virtual video made up of the Casa Blanca Condos by clicking here.

We are 15 min to the city of Manta and only about 25 minutes to Manta Airport so home owners can come and go quickly and easily.

Our condos are special and we also offer fractional ownership of two months per year. Owners can choose fixed months or be in a rotation and can exchange weeks months with others. These months can also be rented by the week  and we offer rental assistance.

The units or fractional ownerships can also be sold.

The units  are approx 900 square feet plus a large 400 square foot patio that includes a Jacuzzi and charcoal BBQ .

All units are in front of Playa Bonita in Santa Marianita,  just down below our Hotel Casa Blanca and roof top  restaurant.

The hotel is in its initial operations and  now offers rooms though the restuarnt is not yet open at this time,  but we are not 100% in operation.

Kind regards, Frank Sunsethomes@rogers.com

We DO NOT investigate properties when they are advertised so be sure to complete your due diligence.  Always use an independent Ecuador attorney who represents you (not the seller) when you buy real estate in Ecuador. We also recommend that you rent before you buy and become familiar with Ecuador.

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.
