Love in the Time of the Ecuadorian Coast

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.

La Panga Market

La Panga Market

I start to work in Constructora del Castillo on September 2012, I am in the marketing and projects department, and one of my principal tasks is to develop new projects. One of the first projects I work on was the development of a mini market in JAMA CAMPAY Playa del Sol. This mini market is called La Panga Market and now is one of my priority projects because it main objective is to give more facilities to the community that live in the JAMA CAMPAY.

It’s important for me to explain you what means for us community. Our community involves a group of people who are very important for us: 70 workers, our suppliers, partners, property owners, tourists and all their families, who will benefit with a variety of high quality products.

One of our strengths as a company is to think out the box, to always ask ourselves – Now what else can we do? So in a short term we want, besides of our mini market in JAMA CAMPAY, to have one in Jama and in a long term we want be a chain of food distribution all over the Ecuador.

But let focus in the present and let me tell you how I am doing in the development of this project.

I thought that this project was going to be a piece of cake, you know, only calling three or four companies and ask them to provide me with their products and that was it, but certainly I was wrong, developing this mini market is quite a challenge, it involve making a data base of all our possible suppliers, taking into account all the products people use. So for this, first I went to the pantry of my house and write down all
