We are a beach bar/resto/villa project on the beach in Santa Marianita in ecuador (15 mins south of the city of manta.) I am originally from Canada and I fell in love with Ecuador in 2015 and decided to make it my home. Santa Marianita It is a great community of sun seekers, locals and expats. Home to the best coastal weather in all of ecuador it is also a amazing for kite surfing and surfing. Currently there are 3 kite schools here on the beach with arguably the most affordable prices in all of South America. Our beach bar is open on weekends and we have completed the first villa and dorms. We are located directly on the beach, so no need to walk far for the waves. You can enjoy local cuisine as well take a walk into the pueblo and mingle with the locals. It really is a great Community.

ecuador is an amazing country. It really has it all in one country. Where we are situated in the coast you can be in the jungle in 20 minutes with monkeys and back on the beach with the locals in the same afternoon. Lots to do and see.
We are looking for open minded , trustworthy, good (laid back) people to mainly help build the landscaping, painting, building, and general creative creativity. Must be trustworthy and kind to all people. We have dogs and they are part of our family. So it is important that you like dogs otherwise you will not enjoy the experience with us. Looking to add gardens and begin to produce sustainable produce , so knowledge of growing is a plus :) Any questions please let us know and thanks for checking us out.
We have brand new dorms and washrooms. Very clean. Dorms have 4 bunks each and all bunks have there own power supply. The washrooms/showers are behind the dorms and are brand new and are designed for your individual privacy and comfort. We also have space for cooking and washing should you care to cook :) as well. We have ample space for fires and star gazing while listening to the ocean waves. As for food. It depends on the length of stay and arrangents. But breakfast/lunch or dinner will be provided and we are open to arranging what the volunteers like best :)
