Manta Ecuador: NOT what we EXPECTED (from this POPULAR EXPAT CITY)

Amelia and JP VLOG 234: We FINALLY went to Manta Ecuador and filmed it for this week’s video! Yay!!!

We were REALLY impressed with Manta and we’re already planning our next trip back to film more of the city. It is one of the fastest growing cities in Ecuador, and it’s very popular with expats. If you want to live by the beach, but you prefer a modern city with all the amenities, this might be the perfect spot for you.

Having been to several coastal cities in Ecuador, Manta was not what we expected. It’s somewhat of a hybrid between the large, commercial city of Guayaquil, and the smaller coastal city of La Libertad. Based on our first impression, it seems to have the best of both worlds!

Huge thanks to our new friends, Ryan and Tiffany from Ecuador Shores Realty  and Hotel Oro Verde for making our first trip to Manta so memorable!
