Our family of three (w 8 yr. old) enjoyed our week stay at Jorge's place in mid September 2017. Proximity and views of the beach were excellent. Bus or cab to Puerto Lopez was cheap and easy. We enjoyed the convenience of the mobile street vendors, who sold items such as fresh shrimp, fruits and vegetables. We really appreciated both Jorge's excellent communication and internet!
Our time at Jorge's house was amazing, we enjoyed our time there! The house is very clean and has everything you need for a pleasant stay: white goods, complete kitchen utensils, hammocks :), among others. Besides, it is a perfect place to rest and feel comfortable. The location is ideal; it is close to many beaches (which are perfect to rest and enjoy the amazing landscapes) and other towns such as Puerto López or Montañita. Therefore, there are places nearby that fit different likes and preferences. Jorge was really helpful and gave us awesome recommendations for places to visit and people in town who offer touristic activities and delicious food. We are very happy guests and we definitely want to come back in a near future!
Great location, a block from the beach and another block from two awesome little restaurants "D' Jimmy(sea food) and Guidos Pizzeria. The rooms were comfortable, the sunset view from the balcony was beautiful.
We were going to stay for 3 days but we stay five days instead. The house is well located between the adventure hub of Puerto Lopez and the party town of Montañita.
If you are looking for adventures such as scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, paddle board, horse back riding, mountain bike or just patty like crazy Jorge can point you on the right direction.
On the other hand, if you just want to relax and chill there is semi-private beach away from the house, or you can always go to Los Frailes (+/- 45 minutes away from the house).
Great location...right on a nice quiet beach. Las Tunas is a very calm and quiet town and yet is only 10 minutes away from Puerto Lopez. There are many amazing things to see and do only a short drive from Las Tunas. Jorge was a very accommodating host even though he was not in Ecuador when we visited. Even from a distance he made sure everything was wonderful for us at his house and stayed in contact with us during our stay. He has a great employee looking after his place. His dog was very friendly and good with children. The hammocks at Casa Esperanto were definitely a high light for us all!! Great place to stay with a family!
