“Ayampe has a small town feel, with dirt roads and a neighborhood corner store; a grocery truck that comes around daily offering all of the local fruits and vegetables. It is so satisfying to get things such as bananas, passion fruit and avocados all at a fraction of the cost in the US! 

“Ayampe is such a close-knit community with a family feel and we were welcomed immediately by everyone … “

  • It's the integration of your home with nature.
  • It's the activities out your front door and at your fingertips every day
  • It's the genuinely down-to-earth, relaxed, and friendly energy of the people
  • And it's the natural and community amenities right in your neighborhood to enjoy

Being affordable is just one of the benefits...

Our story began with a vision of oasis ...

In June of 2012 we took a surfing trip to the beautiful coast of Ecuador. We saw that the village of Ayampe is surrounded by a mild desert beach climate on the north and south sides …

As we looked up on the hillside from the beach we realized how unique it is.

Ayampe is one of the few, unique environments on coast of Ecuador where a tropical climate meets the ocean.

Soon we fell in love with the nature, the village, the people and lifestyle of this place.

So we were curious about what it might be like to live here, maybe even retire here someday …
