Manta Moments: Oceanfront Living & Local Delights in Ecuador

When we moved to Manta Ecuador, Amelia and I both fulfilled a dream to live in a highrise condo on the beach with an ocean view. The views from our balcony were breathtaking, and we spent many evenings sitting out there, sipping mocktails and watching the sunset.

Manta EcuadorFlocks of pelicans flew by our balcony regularly, and we loved to watch them glide gracefully through the air. Although we couldn’t see the sunrise from our condo, the sunsets over the ocean were truly incredible.

We also enjoyed watching kitesurfers on occasion, and even had front-row seats to the swimming portion of the Manta Ironman competition. The high tide was quite loud, especially when it occurred early in the morning, but it was a small price to pay for the amazing ocean views.

One of our favorite things to do was walk to the neighborhood mercadito to buy fresh fruits and veggies from Yanki and her family. We also loved to eat at South Indian, a restaurant owned by our friend Ravi.

Although we don’t live there anymore, the memories of our time in Manta will always hold a special place in our hearts. And we sure miss the views!
