See eleven Manta real estate pictures below that are of great economic importance.
Manta real estate in Ecuador has a cheerleading team with an investing chant that goes like this:
Give me an A.
Now give me and I
Give me an R!
Give me a big P
Give me an O
Give me an R
Give me a T
A-I-R-P-O-R-T. Airport! Manta Airport.
Everyone knows the three biggest secrets to good real estate investing…location, location and location.
One key location rule reads airport. Manta’s airport.
Here is that real estate rule seen in pictorial form…one of many reasons why Merri and I just made a substantial investment in property near Manta, Ecuador real estate.
Big money is pouring into the airport and surrounding area. Howard Johnson for example has opened this airport hotel and have opened and run the restaurant at Manta Airport.
One way to Manta real estate profit or any real estate profit is to buy property near an airport.
The way to even bigger Manta real estate profits is to buy property near the airport before Manta Airport has international flights.
There are plenty of other reasons why we love investing in real estate near Manta…but Manta’s airport dramatically enhances our chances of making substantial profit.
The airport exists yes…but only as a local airport.
Right now the way to get to Ecuador’s coast by air is to fly to Quito and then catch a connection to Manta.
Tourism is Ecuador’s 5th largest income producer (after oil, bananas, shrimp and roses). Manta’s airport has all the facilities to accept international flights from Miami…except customs and immigration.
Already Aerogal which has regular flights from Quito to Manta. Aerogal has also been approved to operate Guayaquil- Miami flights.
What happens to Manta real estate when Miami-Manta flights begin?
How long will it take for the penny to drop? Let’s step back…40 years in time… to a place now called Cancun.
Actually we cannot. No such town existed then…except perhaps in the mind of tourism planners and investors who created the name and a tourism city they planned to create all centered around…an international airport.
Cancun was selected after extensive exploration by Banco de México. When development began in 1970, Isla Cancún had only three residents, caretakers of the coconut plantation. There were 117 people living in nearby Puerto Juárez, a fishing village and military base.
The entire project was master-planned and has grown rapidly over the past thirty years to become a city of approximately 600,000.
Good weather..fine beaches…and low cost labor all contributed to Cancun’s success. The keys though were the excellent beaches and easy airport access!
Let’s look at this picture again. Here is the beach in front of our condos.
This broad beach runs for miles. At the end, the blue point in the background of this next picture is Manta…along many, many miles of empty, wide beach.
Here is a shot from the club house for the apartment and condos Merri and I bought. Pool on the beach…tennis courts…gym….gourmet dining and an ocean view just seconds walk to the beach…all 45 minutes from Manta airport..right now…on pretty bad roads.
The Ecuadorian government has allocated huge amounts of new money to fix the roads. This will help increase Manta real estate values.
What will two simple shifts…bad roads to good. Local airports to international…do to the value of Manta real estate and our condos?
However, we are not done.
During the 2007 Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa visit to China, he offered China a concession to run Manta airport base.
Currently the air base is used by the US and has a couple hundred military personal there.
The China initiative is part of Ecuador’s efforts to have Manta become the “doorway” for Asia to Latin America.
Which will bring more value to Manta real estate? A few hundred military personal or the Asian gateway to Latin America?
However we are not done with Manta real estate yet!
Ecuador is also working to make Manta the regional connector with ports from Peru, Colombia, and northern Chile. Terminales del Ecuador, a subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Hutchison Port Holdings, has already been awarded the concession of the Manta port and has spoken of additional Chinese investments for further projects such as a rail system.
There you have it. Miles of perfect, white beach. Great water and weather. A local airport that can easily become international. Opportunity for improved roads. Latin America’s new gateway to Asia and the regional Latin freight connection.
What more could you ask for?
Believe it or not I have saved the best for last. Here is Manta real estate’s really big gun.
Last August Ecuador and Brazil signed an agreement for the construction of the Manta-Manaus highway corridor to link the two countries. Ecuador is seeking to improve road connectivity to neighboring countries such as Colombia, Peru and Brazil. Some of these roads would also connect to waterways linking Ecuador and Brazil.
Waterways? What does “waterways” mean? Let’s have a small geography lesson just to be clear.
Manaus is a city in the northern part of Brazil located on the Rio Negro near its confluence with the Rio Solimões.
The Rio Solimões is better known by another name …the Amazon River.
Manaus is the chief port and a hub on the Amazon River!
Picture this. A container ship arrives at Manta on the Pacific. It loads on a truck and drives to Manaus were it is loaded onto another ship back to sea…but the Atlantic!
The Manta-Manaus highway will compete with the Panama canal for the large container ship business.
All this development will take time. Owning Manta real estate, or nearby, is in my opinion like owning land around Cancun when it was just getting started….only much better.
Cancun did not happen over night. Do not expect Manta real estate to explode upwards immediately either. Though so far it has. Manta has been Ecuador’s fastest growing city for the last three years.
I recently wrote about the Vistazul condo project where we have purchased property. I want to clarify that I am not paid nor am I receiving any commissions. I will gain as a condo owner if prices increase. Plus I am using the combined buying power of Ecuador Living subscribers to gain a better price for them.
There is only one condo design. All the condos will look somewhat like this clubhouse which has already been built..but each individual unit is wider and only two stories with a roof terrace.
Here is the sunset you can enjoy as you dine at the club house.
There are three prices depending on view. The higher the view, the higher the price.
Here is a view of sunset at ground level from where the lowest sitting condo will be built.

Five Positive Steps
Join Merri and me as we look at positive ways to prosper during 2013. Here are five ways to gain from the forces of change that can raise havoc with many.
#1: Having your own micro business for extra earnings, freedom, fulfillment and fun.
#2: Living and prospering in lower cost countries or small towns.
#3: Multi currency investing through US brokers and bankers abroad.
#4: Commodities that rise with inflation.
#5: Good value real estate…. especially multi dimensional and agricultural property.
We have specialized for over four decades in helping our readers excel in these five inflation beating opportunities.
The big benefits of belonging to the International Club are the power of repetition, updates and international friendships. As a club member, you become friends with other members as you meet again and again.
Your first saving is on waived seminar fees for the seminars over the next year.
As you will see above and below you can attend Florida & North Carolina seminars. If you attend just two of these seminars, the $1,799 membership fee will have already created a savings for you.
Yet there is more. Much more.

Enough…. Enough with the Bad News.
Our 2013 mantra is BE POSITIVE in this negative world. There is nothing as valuable as rarity but we need to remember that bad news sells. This means the mainstream media has slipped into offering information with an adrenaline rush. Mayhem, murder and natural disasters. These negative events will happen…. globally. We cannot do much about this. Dwelling on insolvable negativity is not good for our health or wealth.
A recent quote from the Abraham Hicks website explains why nicely.
Continuing to tell stories of shortage only continues to contradict your desire for abundance, and you cannot have it both ways: You cannot focus upon unwanted and receive wanted. You cannot focus upon stories about money that make you feel uncomfortable and allow into your experience what makes you feel comfortable. A different story will bring different results: My thoughts are the basis for the attraction of all things that I consider to be good, which includes enough money, and health, for my comfort and joy.
Make 2013 Your Best Year Ever
What we can do is make ourselves Friendlier, More Compassionate, Happier, Stronger, More Energetic with greater intellect. The way to start is to surround ourselves with successful, friendly, compassionate, happy, stronger, smarter, positive people who think as you do.

(See a list of speakers you’ll meet at the club meetings along with other club members below).
Absorb through Osmosis
Merri and I are in our 45th year of organizing courses, seminars and newsletters about international and Super Thinking lifestyles. The importance of this sharing… by like minded souls… was reinforced when a delegate from a course sent an email that said:
My Dearest Merri and Gary, Thank you for your most gracious hospitality last weekend. I am just thrilled at being a part of your group. You and Gary were exactly as I imagined you to be, warm friendly, kind, considerate, genuine, helpful, fun, sincere, what else can I say……I felt so comfortable in your presence and learned so much in your course. I was sad to leave the farm that Sunday afternoon. You made us all feel so welcome and cared about. You were so kind to make arrangements for a ride with the other delegates from the Charlotte Airport. They were so nice to me and so helpful, by the time the weekend was over I felt like they were my long lost brothers. Monday morning we all had breakfast at the airport together and I was so sad to see them go, I was sad the weekend was over, perhaps sad is not the right word for how I was feeling perhaps Gratitude is a better way to describe it. Grateful for having the opportunity to share the weekend with such wonderful, like minded Human Beings, in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Thank you Merri and Gary. Thanks to you I now have new hope and a new direction to move forward in my life. I know by attending your classes and conferences that through education and due diligence I will make the right choices.
This delegate’s comments about “belonging and feeling like a brother” to the other delegates is a wonderful refrain we have heard from our readers, year after year.
24 years ago Merri and I created a way that readers can join us to be immersed in a year-long learning program through our International Club.
The ideas behind this program began all those years ago in Vienna, Austria while we were conducting a course there. One of our older delegates, had some sort of attack. The first fear was heart trouble. Several delegates took him to the hospital. Others stayed with him there. I don’t think that delegate was alone for a minute!
What impressed Merri and me was that no one asked the delegates to help this man.
The friendships of delegates sharing many courses had just grown so strong that it was a natural reaction, just as if a family member was ill. Fortunately, it was only travel fatigue and the delegate didn’t miss a session of the course!
When you join our International Club 2013 you become part of a special family. The very first member to join the club all those years ago wrote, Thank you for the enjoyable and informative courses. I am pleased to be part of your international family and look forward to continuing my education at the next course.
His feeling struck a familiar chord. It has always been one of my greatest satisfactions to see how much fun delegates have getting together, sharing information and making friendships as we learn how to improve our health and increase our wealth.
The courses draw like-minded souls. For this reason some delegates come back again and again. They come to learn, but also to be with their many friends made at the courses. When like-minded souls get together again and again to discuss a common purpose, magic happens! I can’t explain it in any other way-but it is true.
In a way our meetings are almost like family reunions. Perhaps it is getting together and reflecting on what has been said and what has been happening.
Learning with those who are also interested in the world creates thoughts that multiply the value of what we gain. This is hard to describe but results are most powerful and wonderful! This is to me is as important as the great financial benefit of attending many of our courses.
See the 2013 seminars in detail below.
We started and have continued the International Club for 24 years because there are wonderful benefits from having repeat delegates at courses. Having repeat delegates makes the whole course somehow more exciting for all. Being a repeat delegate makes it easier to make and keep wealth and to lock in the knowledge you gain. It’s an exciting lifestyle. We have fun, gain adventure, discovery and friendships and share ways to improve our health and wealth!
You can see from the schedule above a very busy schedule for 2013. Very few club members actually attend every seminar. Many attend almost all of them! Of course we hope you be with us for all of them, but even if you attend just two of the seminars, you gain considerable savings.
Another savings: Lifestyle for Two.
We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO! You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)
The International Club fee of $1,799 is less than the price of two seminars.
I invite you to be a member of the International Club which allows you and your guest of your choice to attend all of these courses and tours.
Let’s prosper in these times of change. Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? Join us at our farms and visit Ecuador. We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!
