COVID-19 Update

As is the case with vacation spots around the world, Ecuador is essentially shut down while this event is ongoing. We believe that travel to our beautiful country will re-instate late in 2020, and when it does, we will be here ready to share its treasures with you.

Until then, be safe and happy and remember....

About Us

Our Property

Casas Pacíficos has four beautiful casitas in a peaceful, resort-like property in Punta Carnero, Ecuador. 

Rent one for a week or more, or book your spiritual, business or healing retreat and revel in the ambiance of this magical slice of Ecuador.

Enjoy the 3 kilometre stretch of beach which is just a one-minute walk, or explore the wetlands that are a bird-lovers paradise just outside our gate.

This lovely private enclave has three one-bedroom casitas and a hotel-type suite. A swimming pool, bar, labyrinth and comfortable reading and relaxing areas are sprinkled throughout the property, which also boasts the only building of its kind at any resort in South America, perhaps the world. 

"Casa de Música" is a very special music house equipped with harps, guitars, and other musical instruments that guests can enjoy during their stay. 

Crowning the property is a raised palapa that overlooks Casas Pacíficos as well as the ocean and conservation land beside us.

For rest, relaxation, rejuvenation or a base from which to explore the wonders of Ecuador, Casas Pacíficos is the perfect home away from home.

With an on-site staff available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to assist you with everything from borrowing a hair dryer to booking excursions or finding the best place to shop for groceries, you'll see why we say, 

"Nuestras casas son tus casas"!

How fortunate that Lynn had a similar dream… to live where it’s warm all year round, and to enjoy the beach and sunshine in this beautiful land.
