Come and visit or stay for long in UNESCOs declared world's 2nd best climate city of Playas.
Playas (General Villamil) is only an hour drive from the main city of Guayaquil or Salinas.
I encourage you when you come to Playas to enjoy the sea breeze, relax in an uncrowded, light, fine-sand beach, and order seafood and lunch meals that are conveniently priced at $3 per person, or go for a boat ride to the near Puna island for $15, lunch included.
If you are more of a surf addict, there is a nearby place where you can ride the waves: el Pelado, a 15 minute drive.
This is a 2nd floor fully furnished apartment with two rooms and two baths that can comfortably accommodate up to 5 persons. The steps of the stairs to the second floor are not steep, and the house was designed to have a comfortable, relaxed, stress free and very enjoyable atmosphere. Due to its construction material (hardwood and bamboo), the apartment remains cool even in very sunny days.
There is an onsite laundry and drying room, and the housekkepper will take care of your clothes cleaning needs every Saturday. The apartment has tv cable, a 32 inch LCD, internet (cat 5 and wireless), kitchen, and two balconies.
You can have barbecues on the ground floor or get together with friends at night. There is a large yard to do this with a mango and an orange tree nearby. The nights are gorgeous and the climate magnificent (77 farenheit) all year round. During the day you can enjoy the sun or if it is too much sun for you, you can find shade from the trees and the bamboo and cade strategically located around the patio and yard.
Hi, I am Frank and I live with my partner, Cinthya, and daughter in Playas in one of the three floors of the property. It has been a long family tradition to spend the beach season in Playas, and we followed it every year in the past while on vacation from school, or work, etc.. This is how I, from my childhood years, came to better know and love Playas and later decided to move here permanently. At the same time, I really appreciate and enjoy nature a lot, which is the reason why I had the apartment constructed with as minimum cement (only bathrooms have it) as possible, searching and using local natural resources (hard bamboo from Quevedo and hardwoods from Esmeraldas) from the area instead.
Playas is one of the most peaceful and most untouched beach areas that can be found along the Ecuadorian coastal front. You can really escape from the stress here. Its people are very friendly and love the simple things: family is at the top, life enjoyment through outside gathering of family and friends is encouraged and practiced, and its people rarely engage in any form of violence or confrontations.
What makes this property unique is the construction materials: hardwood and bamboo. Due to this, the apartment stays cool and fresh year long, and the wood texture and color gives you a reason to unwind and relax, while putting you in a good mood.
In 1982, UNESCO declared Playas to have the 2nd best climate of the world. The beach has a very fine sand and the water is really warm. It is so warm that even in the 'cool' season (August through November), you can still get in and find more or less comfortable water temperatures. These two things make Playas unique.
The fauna on el Canal del Morro, which separates the Puna Island from the Continental land, is espectacular. You will be able to see dolphins, patas azules birds, fragatas and many more birds that have made the small islands - islotes - their home, as you venture in a boat trip to the Puna Island (15 to 45 minutes- it is up to you how far you want to go), where you can take plenty of pictures and then disembark in any of the three comunas (communal lands) to enjoy more beach privacy and very calm and warm waters.
If you enjoy peer fishing or surfing, el Faro and el Pelado, respectively, will be your favorite places to visit. Both are within 10 minutes drive.
You can visit a historic wood church of la Iglesia del Morro (with over 500 years old); do roller skating at the central park, bike and climb in el Cerro del Muerto. We can help you contract a small boat or lancha if you prefer going deep sea fishing, diving, or snorkeling.
