In coastal Ecuadorâ€™s ManabÃ province, Crucita is one of the best options for those who want to live in a typical beach town, yet be close to amenities like quality health care and modern shopping offered by a larger city.
Just a 30-minute drive from the major port city of Manta and 20 minutes from the provincial capital of Portoviejo, the little town of Crucita watches over a long eight-mile stretch of flat beach, bracketed on either side by tall rocky promontories. From the southernmost of these hillsâ€”closest to the town itselfâ€”paragliders launch themselves over the ocean. The thermal breezes allow them to float effortlessly to the beach below.
Crucita is the top spot in Ecuador for paragliding and hang gliding, in fact, and international competitions are held here every year. During these times and during Carnaval, just before Easter, the beaches are full of sun lovers who come to enjoy the sand, surf and warm, blue-green ocean waters.
Usually, though, Crucita is just a sleepy little beach townâ€”a place to while away the hours at a small bar or seafood restaurant on the maleconâ€¦watching the waves with a cold cerveza and a plate of steaming seafood.
Crucita is known for its fresh ceviche and tasty encebolladaâ€”a rich stew of fish, onions and yucca thatâ€™s said to be an excellent hangover cure. All this can be had for just a couple of bucks, beer included. (Perhaps itâ€™s an excellent hangover starter as well?)
The low cost of living in Crucitaâ€”and all of Ecuador, if truth be toldâ€”is one of the attractions here. Real estate prices, too, are phenomenally lowâ€”especially when you consider Crucitaâ€™s proximity to two domestic airports and modern services provided in Manta and Portoviejo.
Our friends say there is not a lot to do in Crucita and thatâ€™s exactly why they like it.
â€œWe walk on the beach in the mornings, maybe stop for lunch or buy some fresh fish from a local fisherman for $2 a pound. In the late afternoon we sit on the balcony, cold beer in hand, and watch the sunset. Later, the sound of the waves lulls us to sleep. And the next day we get up and do it all over againâ€¦â€

The place looks beautiful but when I got in touch with the owner, he didn't seem to want to rent the place! which I thought it was weird! The ad say that the accomodations are for 6 people but I told them we were 5 and he said that was too many people...so It's very confusing.
