LiveTheLifeinEcuador | April 15, 2015
The ability to live near the beach is one of the top reasons tourists go from visiting Ecuador to making it their permanent residence. Some beaches are always full of tourists while others will be better for living out your regular days. Choosing the best beach town will depend on what you enjoy doing the most near the water such as fishing, surfing, paddle boarding or just enjoying the sea air.
In the spirit of beach living, there are some areas more conducive to life along the coast. Here are the top four beach towns in Ecuador:
Puerto Lopez: Located in the Manabi Province, Puerto Lopez is a popular spot for whale watching and boat trips. Beautiful sand and wildlife line the beaches in this area, making it an ideal town to call home.
Manta: As the 3rd largest and fastest-growing city in Ecuador, Manta has all the big city amenities but with the small town feel. Many of the bargain priced properties have already been bought up, but you can’t beat the convenience of life in Manta.
Canoa. This is a surfer and backpacker haven with an energy all of its own. Beach, surf and young ideas blend together to create this town 25 minutes north of Bahia de Caraquez.
Playas. This is the closest beach town to Ecuador’s largest city of Guayaquil. With plenty of shopping, restaurants and activities nearby, residents enjoy the best of beach living and all the creature comforts they need for life.
Of course this is just a small selection of the beach towns available to you in Ecuador. Here, you’ll find everything from secluded, private beaches to pristine shorelines thronged with happy visitors. The choice is yours: be in the action or relax in the privacy of your own paradise.
