WHY INVEST IN LOS ALGARROBOS?
Los Algarrobos is located just 1.3 miles from the center of the quiet town of Puerto López. It offers a desirable setting on the more exclusive section of the beach. This part of the beach is an area of secluded hotels and forested sand dunes covered in mangroves and manzanillo trees. The site is also at a higher elevation than the beach, so as to ensure protection against high tides. From here you can enjoy a panoramic view of the ocean and the entire bay.
This region of the Ecuadorian coast is defined by its natural beauty and is sparsely populated. Most of the surrounding area of Puerto Lopez, about 170,000 acres of forests and marine ecosystems, is protected by the Machalilla National Park. However, since it is also a tourist destination, the town has a diverse selection of restaurants as well as recreation, sports, and cultural activities.
★ Ecological Designs:
The lots, developed on approximately 1.6 acres, have been thoughtfully designed with careful respect for the nature, incorporating native vegetation. The 10 lots are enclosed with natural materials and include excellent infrastructure with water, electricity, and public lighting. Sewage systems will be built on each home site. The street is paved and will be flanked by a tunnel of native trees planted along channels specifically designed to retain the rainwater for irrigation.
★ Individual Lots:
Los Algarrobos has 10 lots in total, with 8 of these adequately sized for single family homes. Ranging from 3,670 square feet to 5,780 square feet, all of them have a partial ocean view with the exception of Lot #5 which has a direct view to the ocean. In these lots, you will have the opportunity to custom design the home to your specifications. The larger lots are also big enough to build a small guest house as well as the principal house.
★ Prime Lots:
We have set aside the two largest lots about ¼ acre each that are well suited for a small condominium project, boutique suites, or your own luxury residence, taking advantage of the extra security from building inside of a gated community with security guards, gardens, and all of the basic infrastructure in place. Its desirable location allows you to enjoy a beautiful ocean view in one of the most beautiful sites of the whole region. It's an investment you will always appreciate.

About the Area
The province of Manabí with its 320 km of beautiful beaches makes this region one of the most visited by local and foreign tourists, with spas of all types across its coast. The gastronomy of the region is one of the best in the country using the freshest ingredients, including tropical fruits, fresh fish and seafood.
Puerto López is a beautiful town that has grown into a destination for tourism due to its nature and cultural activities. Within the national park, the island of Isla de La Plata, located 26 miles off shore from Puerto Lopez, is the habitat of several bird species also found in the Galapagos Islands. In its pristine waters you can dive with giant manta rays and sea turtles. The humpback whales make their annual trip from the Antarctic to mate and give birth here, providing a magnificent spectacle enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year. According to the Pacific Whale Foundation this is one of the best whale watching sites in the world.
Puerto Lopez is well connected with two important cities: it is a three hour drive south along the Ruta Spondylus, the coastal scenic route, to reach Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest and most vibrant city, while the port city of Manta lies one a half hours to the north.
In close proximity, you can find wonderful attractions such as the beautiful beaches of Los Frailes, only a 15 minute drive away and part of the national park, and the indigenous community of Agua Blanca, with its own archaeological museum and community-preserved archaeological site.
