Exploring the Pacific Coast of Manta, Ecuador, JUST DO IT!
You’ll be able to learn in just 8 days if Manta, Ecuador or the nearby beach communities are intriguing for you and how you could possibly improve your lifestyle with less expense and less stress, by simply escaping to a different culture outside of the US or Canada. This tour can be just a vacation for you, or it can be an exploring tour for you to see what expat living is all about in Ecuador, on the Pacific Coast with breathtaking ocean views in every fishing village and beach community. By taking a private 8 day/7 night tour vacation to explore the Pacific Coast communities of Ecuador, this tour might be just what you need for the summer in 2019 or the winter of 2020! Basically it is a PERSONAL tour with me, Lisa Coons, aka Lisa the Explorer of Ecuador (my blog name and it began in March 2017, my first trip), from the United States. I am now considered an expat, who chose to sell everything and relocate, purchase a condo, and live in beautiful Manabí Province, and the metropolitan city of Manta. I have been an expat for over two years now, moving from my home of 37 years in Orlando, Florida and originally being from the state of Kentucky. I will share with you why I fell in love with Manta, Ecuador and why I chose to live here. Many North Americans, from the US and Canada have chosen to make the Pacific Coast of Ecuador their home! Some are retired, some are just looking for a less stressful lifestyle and work from home. Knowing many people are curious as o why someone would choose to live in Ecuador, THIS is now the motivator for me, to facilitate these informational tours. I have found many people are curious and have seen much about Ecuador on International House Hunter episodes. This tour helps you see the beautiful Pacific Coastline Communities of Ecuador and you will meet many expats during the tour. This tour gives you freedom and flexibility, unlike a cruise, it’s a private personal tour lead by me with Ecuadorian guides. I’ve now been here for almost two years, and I love it! Now the tour is designed for a minimum of 2 people. We can add 1 extra person if desired as 3 people is the preferred private tour many desire. However we can accommodate a “private group up to 8 for the additional cost each found on the tour tab of this website. Pricing and details are found on the tour tab of this website. Remember, your stay can be customized to your desired dates. In 2020, the dates can be chosen between January 17, 2020 and March 24, 2020, June 21, 2020 – September 12, 2020 YOU PICK THE DATES and with your deposit, your private tour will be secured. All stays on this excursion INCLUDE 7 nights, HOTEL INCLUDED IN TOUR FEE.** You will stay in 3 beautiful Pacific Ocean beach communities of Ecuador, BEACHSIDE, beginning in Canoa down to Puerto Lopez, ending back at the starting point, our host Hotel in Manta! In between there are a multitude of Expat beachfront communities, which we will explore as we tour.
**We also pay for your hotel stay in Guayaquil and transportation to Manta the next day, after a nice rest and good breakfast to start your new Adventure, discover Manta, Ecuador and the Manabi Province. We do not pay for your travel from the US or Canada to Guayaquil, that is separate expense for you the adventurer.
Last summer I spent 10 days visiting Lisa in Manta Ecuador. Juan, the tour guide took us to several beaches along the coast toward Puerto Lopez. Some of the coastline runs along the mountainside forming beautiful cliffs while other areas of coastline are sparkling clean sand beaches. We also toured a rain forest, the fish market and the Museum of the Revolution. One night I was serenaded by a mariachi band in a quaint little restaurant in town. If you like mall shopping, you will enjoy the Mall Del Pacifico, a new multilevel shopping mall near the beach in Manta. The days were full of sunshine and the night sunsets were stunning. Although I didn\'t take this specific tour, I do recommend visiting the coast with Lisa for a fun and enjoyable time.

Such a fun, exciting itinerary! You will definitely enjoy this trip and you’ll learn a lot.
Lisa is a great tour guide. I’ve known her for 25 years and we have travelled together many times. I have just booked by second trip to visit her and see more of beautiful Ecuador.
I have been to Quito and can’t wait to discover Manta. I have travelled numerous times with Lisa and am trusting in her vacation choices!!

I haven’t been yet but I’m super excited to try it! The place looks beautiful and Lisa is a lot of fun!! I would never have thought of Ecuador if she hadn’t shown the pictures!
My wife and I\'ve traveled with Lisa and known her for many years; we\'re really looking forward to the trip. She has shown me some of the best times of my life, and Ecuador looks to be the perfect place to visit- a great combination!
Ecuador is a beautiful country and I would highly recommend Lisa as a tour guide if you are considering a trip!
