Looking for a safe, affordable place for retirement?


With its warm climate, affordable housing and generous benefits, Ecuador was named the best country to retire in by InternationalLiving.com. Esmeraldas is located in the northern of the coast region on the border with Colombia. It is often referred as the "green province" as it has several national reserves. It has great tourist attractions such as beaches, virgin forests, great Afro-Ecuadorian music and extraordinary cuisine.









If You’re Thinking of Retiring in Ecuador, we have a right property for you!


This oceanfront parcel of 9.9 Acres is located outside the town of Esmeraldas, a scenic town in the north of Ecuador, which has a growing demand from North American expats. With this property you have a lot of options – 525 feet of beachfront, with the property then stretching back 825 feet, you may choose to develop it and subdivide the land, build a condo building, do a hotel – the opportunities are endless, and planning laws in Ecuador are not too stringent.

If warm days with fresh ocean breezes sound attractive then this beachfront property is for you! A largely uninhabited beach area that has lots of seafood so often locals are catching crabs and clams right on the beach nearby. No big hotels and just one close neighbor.


The property is located roughly a 20 minute drive outside of Esmeraldas city in a safe area with quiet neighbors. Access to the property from the highway is easy, via a 350 yard dirt road. City water and power is available at the highway, the new owner would be responsible for bringing this in, however, the next door owner has already done so, so you may be able to hook up that way and save significant costs.



No need for air conditioning nor heating as the climate is nice year round. 10 acres of titled land (just over 4 hectares) with 525 feet of beachfront length with a width of 820 feet. Most of the nearby properties are being developed and subdivided into smaller lots, so as the new owner you may elect to do that, or if you like your privacy you can keep your 10 Acres of beachfront land for yourself.
