Welcome! My name is Mark Cowtan and I live in Ecuador with my wife Nelly, daughter Mia, and our dog Lola. We emigrated here from San Jose, California in 2012 to escape the work-no-play lifestyle, and to be more connected with nature.
We are beach lovers, so we wanted to live by the beach. But when we started our research, we could not find decent maps or reliable information about the beaches and the communities around them. So we built this website, to help others discover the best beach to fulfill their passions, lifestyle and dreams.
|It has been a long journey to get here, and a lot of legwork. But we finally settled on the province of Santa Elena, and bought a lovely home in the gated community of Los Capaes, about 20 mins drive from the town of Salinas.
You can watch our story on this House Hunters International Episode which first aired in July 2014.
The site provides accurate maps, and concrete information about the activities, accommodation and neighborhoods for every beach in Ecuador. We depend heavily on contributions from visitors like you, so please help us keep it informative and up-to-date by sharing your Ecuador travel experiences.
