Many Ecuadorean developments give lip service to environmental stewardship without really knowing what that means. Pacific Breeze Marianita is not one of these projects, setting an example that we hope others will follow. All grey water is recycled and reutilized for toilet flushing, and a triple tank septic system is utilized to process waste, reutilizing it in the form of organic compost and water for irrigation. (This system has received the ISO designation in Germany, and is in use in most urban locations.) Finally, LED lights come standard in all townhouses and a solar water-heater is installed on every rooftop to help reduce energy usage.
All 26 units at Pacific Breeze Marianita come with ample space. A separate laundry room and pantry are present in each town-home, opening up the kitchen for additional space for cabinets and appliances so you will always feel comfortable entertaining guests. But the most breathtaking area of your new home may be the rooftop terrace, with wetbar/fridge, BBQ area, power outlets, and some of the most amazing sunsets you will ever see!
If access to first world medical services will be important to you a few years down the road, you will not find a better beach location than Santa Marianita. The trip to Manta (and one of Ecuador´s best hospitals, Rodriguez Zambrano) is just 20 minutes away by car. Even popular expat destinations such as Salinas and Bahia de Caraquez which often boast about infrastructure cannot offer this level of heath service at such a short distance.

Santa Marianita is a small town known by Ecuadorean´s as the kite surfing beach, as kite surfers have flocked to the area for the past decade due to its cross-shore breezes. But as tourists are discovering the area, upscale hotels, restaurants, and some bars have begun to gradually pop up as well. The Malecon, or main beachway road is being modernized, beach preservation has become a priority, and a small community of expats seem to be guiding a sustainable growth model for the entire community.
Santa Marianita would be on anyone´s shortlist of favourite Ecuadorean beaches for its beauty and serenity, its uniqueness, and its sense of community, but Santa Marianita has something that no other beach has. . . . Nearby the city of Manta.
Santa Marianita is located just a short 15 minute drive south of Manta, Manabi´s most important port and the fastest growing city in the country. There you will find everything you need, from supermarkets, medical services, the new huge Pacifico shopping mall, banking, upscale restaurants etc. The area has continued to boom in recent years, as the economy has diversified away from the tuna industry (amongst the strongest in the world) investing heavily in infrastructure, tourism, and professional services.
This is all important information because it is contributing to a growing middle class which will continue to drive property values up for years to come, but the time is still ripe. The cost of living in Ecuador is still 3 times less than most of the U.S. or Canada and 5 times less than major cities like New York and San Francisco.
Whether you´re one of the thousands of North Americans or Europeans looking to make the jump full time or looking for a winter home offering great return on investment, we invite you to get to know Pacific Breeze in Santa Marianita, Manabí.
Construction, based on North-American Standards:
Foundation, Footings and Retaining walls are made with heavy 12mm steel reinforced concrete.
The vapour barrier under the concrete floor of each home prevents moisture and salt from seeping though the floor.
The entire building is made with structural steel frame, and the wall system of your home is constructed with "ZIP-Panels", special fibreboards are used to sandwich the Styrofoam core, providing excellent insulation; soundproofing and most importantly are earthquake resistant.
This product is widely used in the USA and in Canada, although not in Ecuador. We believe this construction method is far superior then the low quality cement block that is a standard building product in Ecuador.
Thank you for taking the time to show me your project, Pacific Breeze at Santa Marianita.
As I mentioned to you, I have recently retired from construction and appreciate the opportunity to look over the blueprints of Pacific Breeze Marianita Project.
The forethought you put into the project, the design and construction are quite impressive.
The use of the foam panels makes for a structurally sound building that is quieter, better insulated, and easier to adapt.
Your use of excellent quality sliding doors and windows adds to making the homes quieter, cooler, and more efficient.
The entire water system, from the solar hot water to the treated septic system is first class.
It is refreshing to see a project that is environmentally friendly and will help Santa Marianita beaches stay as pristine as they are now.
Your condos have an open, bright appearance, with all the amenities one would find in a new home in North America.
Thank you again,
David Benton, Retired Construction Engineer
