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 researching Ecuador online, we found it hard to get decent maps and reliable information about the beaches and the communities around them.
After a lot of legwork, we finally settled on the province of Santa Elena, and bought a lovely home in Capaes, near the town of Salinas.
Ecuador has so much to offer, if only you know where to go. So we decided to build this website, to help others discover the best beach to fulfill their passions, lifestyle and dreams.
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.
