About Armando

I am friendly and laid-back yet clean and organized. I lived in Las Vegas for several years before moving to Ecuador and I love to travel! I enjoy hosting guests and can be as sociable or as private as my guests would like.

Armando purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Armando chose Santa Elena

Love living on the beach, and this location is just perfect. It is close to all the fun in Montañita but far enough away to enjoy peace and tranquility. With private access to the uncrowded beach, plus a jacuzzi and large palapa with grill and dining next to the beach, this is really our version of paradise.

What makes this apartment unique

This location, located directly on the coast highway (Ruta Spondylus / Via del Sol), is really the perfect location. We have easy access to everything we love about the Montañita area, while enjoying a very peaceful atmosphere and the constant sound of the ocean right outside. Very relaxing.

The Pacific coast of Ecuador offers a variety of beaches and activities, including surfing, swimming, hiking, and much more. There are several hot spots, and we are located in one of the most fun areas! Montañita, Ecuador is a lively town where surfers and travelers from around the world come to relax, socialize, eat, drink and simply have a good time.

There are lots of restaurants serving a wide variety of meals to suit any budget. One can enjoy a huge breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt and granola for $2, and the portion is big enough to share. Plate lunches and dinners can be had for as little as $3. Or you can splurge on a nice meal and drinks for $15-20 per person. Choices are yours.

If you like fresh seafood, you are in luck here! When you order any seafood along the coast, chances are it was caught that day. You will also find some shopping in Montañita, and lots of local artisans offering their wares. Don’t forget the surfing! You can bring your own board or rent a surfboard here.

Olón is the next town north of Montañita, with a much more relaxed vibe. Here you will find restaurants and bars as well, but fewer and more tranquil. The beach at Olón is calm and more shallow, better for relaxing and swimming. Many expats live in Olón, because it is close to the action but quieter. (Montañita is rather noisy – it’s a nonstop party.)

Just north of Olón, are a few smaller, even quieter beach villages. This is where you will find us. We are about 10 minutes from Olón / Montañita, so we are very close to the action, but a world away from the noise. Our beachfront location is the perfect mix of proximity to fun activities with peaceful tranquility.

The beach here has waves you can surf, and a long stretch of sand where very few people are seen. Perfect for a mid-morning stroll or jog. Bring your surfboard! Or just bring yourself, and enjoy the atmosphere. Just don’t forget the sunscreen!

A short drive north, will bring you to another surfer beach, in Ayampe. This is a tiny town with very little action, but it is a good surfing spot. If you were to go even further north, you would reach the towns of Manta, Portoviejo, and eventually Esmeraldas.

To the south, the nearest city is Salinas, an hour or so away. There is a new airport here (SNC), as well as a newer shopping mall with a movie theater. Salinas has a hospital, more surfing (Punta Carnero or Mar Bravo), parasailing, many restaurants, hotels, and high rise condos along its coast.

There are many small villages along the modern coast highway between Salinas and Montañita. There are also many stretches of empty coast, making the drive quite pleasant.

The city of Guayaquil and the airport there is about 2.5 hours away. Guayaquil is by far the largest city in the Ecuadorian coastal region, with an international airport (GYE) and all that one would expect to find in any city. The population of Guayaquil is about 2 million.

This is a great place to spend some time relaxing on the beach. The apartment is nice and the beach is awesome! We really enjoyed spending hours on the beach. They have beach tents and the caretaker Emilio was happy to set one up for us anytime we wanted. The outdoor grill was nice. We had breakfast at the picnic table overlooking the beach each morning. The sunsets here are amazing! We would've liked to stay longer but we had to finish our trip up the coast.

Great beach apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and location are as described. It is directly on the beach and very peaceful. It is a little out of the way from Montanita, but that makes it nice! Quiet and relaxing. The apartment is well appointed with everything needed, and has a nice view of the beach in front! I would definitely recommend for those who want to be near the action, but not too close.
