Puerto Lopez Ecuador real estate is really hot! A really excellent coastal road has just been finished from Manta that leads to Puerto Lopez coastal property and it opens an hour and a half of coastal views, property and wonderful new bargains not seen before. On a recent inspection trip, as mentioned, I viewed a 38 acres with about a half mile of beach offered for $15,000, plus a smaller 10 acre lot asking about $7,000 and a crude sub development with glorious ocean views were the asking price was $2,500 for a 2,500 square foot lot (all this Puerto Lopez Ecuador real estate has since sold).

These were rough properties that needed some work, but the prices are so low because this area has just opened up and a new market price has not yet established itself. No one knows yet what to charge for their land because no hotel have come in etc. So the prices are still what they were before the road.

Yet the changes are just beginning. South of Puerto Lopez, Metropolitan Tours built a new 15 room hotel. This is built by Barro Viejo the same architects that designed Merri’s and my house at our Andean plantation Rosaspamba. This adds extra glamour and function to Puerto Lopez Ecuador real estate.

This hotel has a charming design and sits high up cliffs with commanding ocean views. Brand new, the rates at this hotel only $30 a night for a single, $20 per person for a double (excluding breakfast). You can stay there when you inspect Puerto Lopez Ecuador real estate.

If you want a real bargain on your Puerto Lopez Ecuador real estate trips stay at the Whale House Hostel in Puerto Lopez. The rate is only $8 per night including breakfast. This hostel is owned and operated by our friend, Santiago Guaminay. The service is intimate and just plain sweet. Santiago who runs the tour company Ecuador Amazing can book you into either Whale House or the Metropolitan hotel. At Whale House Hostel you sleep in a very comfortable (but not air conditioned) room and dine on excellent food on their roof terrace. Five hammocks are strategically placed. The rooms are just a room, but clean, and the water is only luke warm, but the food is so excellent, the rustic ambience so relaxing ad the walk to the beach just five minutes. Santiago operates tours on his brand new 35 foot cruiser (the fishing is great by the way – snook, snapper, sea bass, the world record Marlin was caught nearby, – plus there are cruises to Isla de la Plata and in season, whale watching where spotting whales guaranteed. Last year we were able to cruise around huge humpbacks at a range of just a few yards.

Puerto Lopez Ecuador real estate is surrounded by over 100,000 acres of national park and there are also hiking and riding trips in the dry and humid tropical forests of the park.

These attractions, plus the growing U.S. population in this area due to the military base, will force prices of Puerto Lopez Ecuador real estate up.
