An overview of the Ecuadorean political system and government. The politics in Ecuador has a long history that has paved the way for the most recent constitution and government. We review the current state of the government, the different roles that the branches have, how the people are represented in the National Assembly, how laws are made, and how the upcoming presidential elections may shake things up.
For the last ten years, Ecuador has continued to appear on investors’ and retirees’ lists of where to look next. This small country, situated in the northwestern nook of South America, is the most biologically diverse country in the world. It is home to beautiful beaches, dense jungles, the tortoise-filled Galapagos islands, soaring mountains and fertile valleys.

We have visited the Torres de Luca project and I must say it was really a great experience. The quality and professionalism can be felt as soon as you enter the building. The natural lighting in each of the condos is something unique and can be described as one of the the main draws. The layouts also emphasize the spacious rooms, inside and outside of each condo with only 4 units per floor.
Punta Blanca is a small exclusive beach town, largely comprised of vacation homes and condos. It is known throughout Ecuador as a high end community that is something of a status symbol for the Ecuadorean upper class. This helps generate extremely strong high season demand for those wishing to earn income through a rental property. This is an up and coming place that is attracting a lot of interest, so now is the time to invest in this opportunity at a great price.
A popular Spanish song, nothing more than an ode to the ocean, went like this: “In the sea, life is so much tastier; in the sea, I love you so much more. With the sun, the moon, and the stars, in the sea, everything is joy.” Despite what is lost in translation, it is still deeply clear how the ocean has the unique power of making us feel light with peace and carelessness. If you were granted the opportunity of experiencing this every day, would you seize it?
Since its founding, Montañita Estates has become a landmark in Montañita, the fastest growing beach on the Ecuadorean coast. The project is the only development located inside Montañita and is centered around the area´s leading high end hotel.
It´d been a few months since I´d talked to Sean Kelly of Grand Palmas and it was good to hear him doing well when I called him this week to get project updates. Sean is one of those guys that doesn´t really talk shop until he´s pressed. When I first met him, I remember being relieved to find a developer that was more interested to talk about their social projects in the community and the produce generated from their finca than pushing real estate at me. As my wife says, "He´s one of the good gringos."
Ecuador has enjoyed a great deal of international attention over the past few years for its incredible beachfront properties. Towns like Playas, Salinas, Manta, and Bahia de Caraquez have received the lion`s share of international buyers, while the province of Esmeraldas has somehow managed to stay off the radar. A visit will leave you scratching your head as to why.
Despite having spent over 3 years in Ecuador, we are still discovering new places. We recently took a tour from Esmeraldas all the way down to Guayaquil, and just north of Jama we came upon a handful of spectacular projects.
