Love in the Time of the Ecuadorian Coast

One of the greatest, most exciting love stories of the past century, Gabriel García Márquez’s Love in the Time of Cholera, takes place in a town surrounded by the ocean and its majestic presence. But then again, so do most love stories. Coastal settings have a way of getting to you, touching your most romantic side and compelling you to live up to it. Because romance is so subjective, some people may dismiss the idea of owning a house in a place such as this. But this is precisely why JAMA CAMPAY is unique in its charm: it not only offers the best within its facilities, but be also outside of them. In other words: you get to experience the full thrill of what romance really means.

Romance is not only about watching exceptionally gorgeous sunsets over an indescribable turquoise sea, holding delicious BBQs under the star lit sky, or waking up to a loved one with the sound of the ocean as a gentle lullaby. It is about discovering all the things you always wanted to do but were too scared or busy to try. And the best part of this is that everything the Pacific Coast has to offer will deeply connect you with the incredibly nature that surrounds you, filling you with the pleasure of adrenaline and the authentic joys of feeling what it is like to be truly free.

Ecuador, as one of the countries with the largest ecological reserves in the world, has wonders to offer when it comes to new activities you can try. With the ocean at your doorstep, you can discover kayaking, sailing, fishing (both commercial and non-industrial), ecological water sports, and swimming, as well as taking inspiring walks and runs on the beach. For nature lovers, the spiritual experience of going whale watching is only a 45-minute sail into the deep blue sea.

For the most adventurous souls, there are all kinds of extreme sports you can learn, ranging from canopying to hiking, right in the mountains of JAMA CAMPAY or its nearby tropical forests. The closeness to the Jama-Coaque Ecological Reserve, a protected area and one of the last significant remnants of native tropical evergreen and cloud forest in between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, create the romantic atmosphere whereby one feels proud to be living near something extraordinary, worth protecting and fighting for.

All of the wonders that the Pacific Coast surrounding JAMA CAMPAY have to offer, including the little-known but amazing Playa Los Frailes (also known as Little Galapagos), give way to an outstanding array of tourism opportunities, including Eco tourism. The town where we are located, Jama, is the legacy left by one of the most renowned ancient cultures of the region, the Jama-Coaque.

As if that were not enough, the marvelous cuisine from Manabí province, where you can find the best food in the Coastal area, makes the experience of living in JAMA CAMPAY all the more exciting. It is a place to experience new things, in all kinds of flavors and sensations. Perhaps one of the most appealing aspects of the JAMA CAMPAY experience is the opportunity of getting to know people the world over. It might be the perfect chance to live out the romantic fantasy of having the perfect vacation with the perfect someone. And it is very likely that you will choose to stay, because you will have found love in this place, way beyond the boundaries of human love, but onto the love of our amazing world. And that is not something one lets go of easily.
