San Clemente, in the Manabi Province, is known for its picturesque beaches, its quaint little fishing villages, and Machalilla National Park and preserve that features fog forests, dry forests, small islands, two bigger islands, and the Isla de la Planta where you can find Ecuador’s famed Blue Boobies.

The province of Manabi, Ecuador, contains a number of popular beaches, such as Puerto Lopez, Los Frailes, Puerto Rico, Canoa, and Puerto Cayo.  There’s also the bustling city of Manta one hour away and the town of Bahia de Caraquez which has established itself as a successful eco-city.

San Clemente is a refreshing break from some of the more overcrowded tourist areas like Salinas, Manta, and Montanita, yet still offers the activities and pleasures that these bigger cities have including surfing, wind-kite surfing, parasailing, sailing, hiking, bike-riding, and bird watching

This large oceanside beach house with views is listed at $160,000.  At this price, it won’t last long.
