A new coastal golf course is coming to Ecuador, near Jama.

Mike Grabowski, head of Yuma Internacional, developers of the Ladera Pacifica gated community recently told me about the new world class golf course opening up soon in Jama, about 30 minutes from the Ladera Pacific community.

Golf facilities in Ecuador are very limited.


Guayaquil Ecuador Golf Course.

Ecuador is not a great golfing destination as there are only a handful of private clubs near Quito, Guayaquil, or Cuenca, with 18-hole courses.  The closest golf course to the Pacific has been quite a distance away in Guayaquil.

An article in Cybergolf  entitled “The Six-Continent Club – With New Course in Ecuador, Smyers Joins One of Golf’s Most Select Groups” (1)

The article says:   He only has Antarctica is left. With a new course opening in Ecuador this fall, golf architect Steve Smyers will have designed on six of Planet Earth’s seven continents, joining only a handful of architects to do so.

“It’s called Costa Jama, and it has four different ecosystems,” explains Smyers energetically, as his eyes light up and he beams a toothy smile and, indeed, he has good reason to be delighted with this site. “It’s right on the Equator, where the mountains meet the Pacific Ocean, with three finishing three holes right on the water or playing directly towards it. It also traverses a jungle, a ravine, a riverside, and winds into the foothills of the mountains. We even play along the side of a river!  It’s an absolutely spectacular natural setting for golf.”

This is one more reason why the area north of Bahia on Ecuador’s Pacific will continue to expand.  See a link to the golf course details below.


Ladera Pacifica is a gated community north of Bahia with a breathtaking panoramic view of the ocean, within walking distance from the beach.

It is situated in coastal Manabi, Ecuador, just a short distance from Bahia de Caraquez, overlooking the fishing and surf town of Canoa.

The project is safely elevated at an average elevation of 60 feet above sea level, in an environmentally protected reserve, surrounded by rare, tropical, pristine forest. Ladera Pacifica project consists of 40 luxury homes, at 1,200 square feet designed to rigorous standards, with quality and sustainability never before seen in Ecuador.

Ladera Pacifc has the best ocean views.

Ocean view homes provide the best of both worlds, access to the sea, but lower operation and maintenance costs away from the  salty corrosive ocean mists.

Ladera Pacific’s position above the beach removes the risks of the rare natural disasters and floods due to high tides, change in weather patterns and the El Nino effect.  Security on a hillside development is also logistically easier, so no huge obtrusive walls are necessary.
