These 18 deeded lots — minutes from the Pacific Ocean in the beautiful Valdivia River Valley — are being sold together as one big property for an investor looking for a flexible investment, a developer wanting to build a housing community near the beach or for buyers hoping to hold onto the land for what’s certain to be a high appreciation.

These lovely level building lots– with lot sizes ranging from  1/8 acre to just ove1/3 acre — are located on 2.06 hectares (5.09 acres) of land near the town of Sinchal in the province of Santa Elena. There is a cul-de-sac and a street that runs between some of the lots. The surrounding scenery is beautiful, with rolling hills, trees, and lush and fertile farmland suitable for growing everything from mangos and avocados to moringa — a major fruit with curative properties sought after worldwide.

The property, known as Propiedad Buenos Dias, is located one and one-half miles from the beach in Valdivia. It is 12 miles to Montanita —  Ecuador’s surfing capital and 15 miles to Olon, a small beach town resort popular appealing to tourists and affluent Ecuadorians. The proximity to these two seaside retreats and to the ocean makes this property even more valuable.

Water and power supply will be available to every property from the local Municipality.

Valdivia, is an archaeological site in coastal Guayas Province that was excavated in the mid-1950s and subsequently investigated by the Smithsonian archaeologists Clifford Evans and Betty Meggers. The digs yielded abundant remains of Valdivia pottery, chipped stone artefacts, fire-modified rock, fish and animal bones, and shells. Representing some of the earliest pottery in the New World, tourists now stop in Valdivia to see some of these artefacts in a small museum.

The asking price for this extraordinary property with 18 deeded lots is $255,000.
