About Bahia de Caráquez:

La Villa de San Antonio de Caráquez, known simply as Bahía de Caráquez or Bahía, is a coastal city in the Ecuadorian province of Manabí. The city is located on a sandy peninsula on the country's western coast at the mouth of the Río Chone. It has seen significant development during the last 15 to 20 years, particularly because it has become a vacation destination for people from Quito and Guayaquil.

Bahía de Caráquez sits on a peninsula where the Rio Chone empties into the Pacific Ocean. The city was once a thriving seaport that has morphed into the most attractive city on the coast. With beautiful beaches, neat parks, many attractions, a full range of amenities, and a laid back attitude, Bahia is an ideal vacation destination.

On February 23, 1999 Bahia de Caraquez declared itself an Eco-city and has been working to maintain the title ever since. It seems to have paid off in a cleaner city and increased tourism, particularly among foreigners.

Across the Rio Chone is the city of San Vicente. Locals cross the river by boat or by the new bridge that was completed as of November 2010. Bahia differs greatly from San Vicente. The city features great condominiums and hotels making Bahia a popular tourist destination for the Ecuadorean elite. The city also boasts a well-known archeological museum, which displays artifacts found in the Ecuadorean state of Manabi including statues from the Valdivia culture as well as several other lesser-known historical communities.

We are Canadian and we purchased this condo for our own use when we are in Bahia. At other times, we make it available to the vacation rental market.

Don purchased this condo in 2012

This property is located in one of the nicest condo buildings in Bahia. Edificio Torresol is both well maintained and secure. The condo is newly renovated with a very nice gourmet kitchen, a balconies, and some of the nicest views in town. The building is located just steps away from the beach.

The building is centrally located, on convenient to all of the major attractions in Bahia. The condo is really comfortable, beauttifully renovated, and the scenery from the balcony is unmatched.

LIFE IN BAHIA

  • 5 of 5
Interaction with the property owner to expedite the rental was excellent. Travel accommodations to/from airport were excellent. Rooms, location, cleanliness - excellent. Easy walking to everything. Suggestion: a printed handout in English & Spanish of name and locations of restaurants, grocery, market, pharmacy, boat taxi, etc. This could be carried and used when riding in bicycle taxi, etc. Also a posted tide chart, since the beach is most accessible at low tide. I recommend a minimum 1 week stay to maximize the value of the rental unit. Great place to be. We would certainly come back again.

River Chone Excursions

Around Bahía, excursions can be done in the estuary of the

Río Chone to the following islands:

Isla Corazón.- Take a canoe tour of the island. The birds on this

island are amazing, and the Frigate Bird colony will give you a real 'Jurassic Park' type of relling. The red, white and black mangroves are neat, and watch for the crabs living among the mangrove roots.

Isla Fragatas.- Located ¼ of an hour by boat from Bahía Isla Fragatas has a myriad of bird types. Between August and January a large colony of frigate birds can be seen very closely showing their inflated red sacksduring the mating ritual season.

Punta Bellaca

Be sure to visit Punta Bellaca, a beautiful beach on the way to Chirije close to the Cerro de lasOrquídeas hill.

Chirije

The archaeological site of Chirije is surrounded by tropical forest

and is situated on a beautiful beach. Located 45 minutes south of Bahía, Chirije used to be a seaport of the Bahía Culture (500 BC-500 AD). This is a good place to relax, as well as for other activities such as birdwatching. Chirije is also know as the UFO hotspot in Ecuador!

Saiananda

Located 5 km from Bahía, is a very interesting private park with

accommodation and a restaurant. This site has a very unusual

combination of native and domestic animals and birds such as chuchuchos, sloths, ostriches, macaws, deer, geese, rabbits, peacocks, donkeys, and cows. The park also has a cactus collection and a bonsai garden.

Canoa

Canoa is a frontier beach town about 20 minutes north of Bahia

that is popular with the surfing set.

Rio Muchaco Organic Farm

Rio Muchacho is nestled in a small valley on the coast of

Ecuador, 40 minutes north of Bahia and 15 minutes from

the popular beach town of Canoa. 11 hectares make up

the sustainable farm and learning center based on

agroecology /permaculture principles. The property

incorporates food forests with large vegetable gardens,

pasture, agroforestry areas, models of alternative energy,

rotational animal raising areas and a meditation/yoga

garden overlooking the river. There are over a hundred

crops rotated throughout the year. The farm balances

as a home to many pigs, chickens, dogs, ducks, cats,

goats, composting worms, cows, guinea pigs, horses,

and of course humans with the vegetation.

Take a Drive on the Beach

At low tide you can drive wouth 20km down the beach to San

Clemente, a charming beach town. San Clemente seems to have its own micro-climate with generally more sunshine and cooling breezes than it's neighbors. There is amazing scenery on the way, and you be able to grab a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants. Be sure to be off the beach well before high tide as it pretty much disappears! For variety, return to Bahia by the road.

Museo Bahía de Caráquez

A good introduction to the area’s indigenous history is the Museo Bahía de Caráquez. The modern museum, which opened in 2004, has hundreds of pieces of pre-Columbian pottery, as well as local crafts for sale. A guided tour in Spanish is included with admission.

Visit the Fish Market

fish market is located on the ground floor of the newly renovated

market. Fresh fish arrives daily, and the best selection is available before noon. The seafood vendors will skillfully fillet your corvina, clean and dehead your shrimp while you wait! For a real treat buy some of the giant shrimp. One is a meal in itself!

Celebrate!

Ecuadoreans love their holidays with over 42 of them (at last count) happening over the course of the year. Parades seem to be a way of life in Bahia and if you plan to stay here for long you should be prepared to join in the festivities. Nov 3, for example is the anniversary date of Bahia de Caraquez and festivities begin to ramp up in late October. Everyone seems to get involved in the action!

See the First Organic Shrimp Farm in the World

This shrimp farm is located close to Bahia de Caraquez Ecocity

in the estuary of the Chone River. It is the first and only certified organic shrimp farm in the world. The methods used on the farm are based on principles of organic farming and permaculture.
