We’ve heard a LOT about this popular expat destination since we moved to Ecuador. Several of our viewers have either moved there already, or are planning a move there, so we wanted to go check it out for ourselves.

In this “day-in-the-life” video, we share the real reasons why we left Olón and moved to Manta, Ecuador.
Daisy hasn’t been feeling well for a few weeks. The vet clinic in Olón said she needed an ultrasound, but they didn’t have that equipment so we took her to the Manta Pets Veterinary Clinic after we moved here.
We’re back in Manta Ecuador for this day-in-the-life video, sharing a walk around the Mercado Central area and a visit to Todo Criollo, a speciality spice and bulk-buy store.
We waited for the rainy season to do the hike up to Las Cascadas in Dos Mangas, Ecuador. It’s been on our list since we moved to Olón, but the waterfalls (cascadas) have been dry for most that time.
In this video, we get to see what heaven looks like when Amelia closes her eyes and imagines it! She did a great job of fighting the temptation to dive headfirst into a bowl of her favorite substance!
Despite water shortages, Olón continues to prosper. We have several new tiendas and restaurants, a few remodeled restaurants, electric scooter rentals, new bike sales, and a few new murals.
In our last video from Manta, Ecuador, we showed you condos for sale on or near the beach. In this video, we’ll show you a few condos for RENT on or near the beach.
Adventure! Romance! Entrepreneurship! Unconventional Life Choices! This video has it all!
Magic mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Now we know!
Our week in Manta ended with a HUGE surprise and a deluxe penthouse in the sky!

We’ve heard great things about Playas Ecuador so we spent a couple of days there to check it out for ourselves.
Following our visit to Ayampe about 30 minutes north of Olón, several of our viewers asked us to show Ayangue, which is about 30 minutes south of Olón.
We teamed up with Josh and Kalie from @Expats Everywhere in Porto, Portugal to create TWO must see videos!
We’ve been accused of MISREPRESENTING Ecuador and OVERPAYING for EVERYTHING because our monthly cost of living in Ecuador is more than some people who live much more cheaply than we do.
The Dos Mangas Ecuador jungle trail has been on our bucket list since we arrived in Olón and we’re so incredibly thankful that we finally did it!
We’ve been wanting to experience this adventure since we moved to Ecuador!
