The amenities are another area that sets Las Olas apart. The Ceibo Valley golf course complete with spectacular ocean views from several holes, while other holes play in deep ravines surrounded by 300 foot cliffs and rainforest vegetation, will be second to none in South America. Our tennis club includes both tennis and the ever-growing popular pickle ball courts. Next, visit the equestrian center, where you can enjoy riding on the trails through the 650-acre private nature reserve, the mountain trails or simply on the beach. Enjoy the beach club, complete with Olympic size-length pool, infinity pools, hot tubs, a spa, a fitness center, restaurants or enjoy your own private beach. Of course, don’t forget our boardwalk located 150 feet above sea level with pools, fitness centers, shops and restaurants.
It is all yours to enjoy at Las Olas!
Bahia de Caraquez is one of the most intimate Ecuadorian tourist places on the coast. It boasts a quaint ocean boardwalk and many unique shops and restaurants. Bahía primarily caters to the growing expat community and to the middle and upper class of Quito and Guayaquil who have vacation condos here. This area is almost completely undiscovered by the rest of the world. Bahía has the lowest crime rate in all of Ecuador. The population of Bahia is estimated to be 30,000 people located in the urban and surrounding areas. The town is a relaxed and very safe place with a fresh food market, including the day’s catch of fresh seafood. Bahia’s surroundings encompasses over 6,000 hectares of shrimp farming facilities…a seafood lovers’ paradise!
The infrastructure in the area has improved significantly over the past seven years. New highways and bridges have cut travel from any of the three major cities, Quito, Guayaquil and Manta, in half. Manta, the fourth largest and fastest growing city in Ecuador with its international airport, is less than an hour away. Bahia is home to a hospital, shops, fresh food markets, a brand new shopping mall and upcoming cinemas.
Manta is a larger city approximately an hour from Las Olas. It is home to a large modern mall and an extensive selection of wonderful restaurants.
A new international airport, boasting the longest runway in South American, is currently under construction, due to open up early 2021. It is also home to a new inter-provincial bus terminal where you can hop a bus to Guayaquil, Quito or many coastal locations for a few dollars.
The cruise terminal was a winner at the Paris awards in 2020 and is a stunning structure. You can see more on the award and details here.
