There are many good reasons why a Playa del Sol condominium is not only a beautiful place to live but also a solid investment.
Location, Security, Quality, Privacy are just a few.
Playa del Sol is located 4 Km south of the popular tourist town of Canoa and 12 Km north of Bahia and has a nice tranquil feeling right on a quiet secluded beach.
With the new bridge connecting San Vicente to Bahia de Caraquez we are in a position to see our property values continue to rise for quite sometime.
Here is a list of new infrastructure plans already in the works.
San Vicente is getting a complete face lift with new roads and a beautiful boardwalk.
Bahia’s new full size shopping mall is under construction complete with cinemas, grocery store, food court and hardware store just to name a few.
Just south of Bahia there are plans for 2 golf courses.
We will eventually see the San Vicente airport open up with flights from Quito making our 3 resorts just a 15 minute commute to paradise.
Our first condominium project Playa Dorada was finished last year and was so popular we started another project with buyers waiting before the plans were even approved.
All 14 Playa Azul condominiums presold quickly and we ended up with more buyers waiting for another project.
So here we are on our third project Playa del Sol.
Playa del Sol is now also under construction with almost half the units presold with a finish date before June of 2014. It will look very much the same as Playa Azul with a beautiful 17X33 foot infinity pool built to the highest standards.
We still have 1 third floor, 2 second floor and three 1st floor units available in the 1,000 S.F. condos.
Also we still have a 1st floor available in the 1,300 S.F. condo in the third building.
There is also a chance for the right buyer to join us at the last available 1,600 S.F. condo in the Playa Azul project scheduled for completion this October. This is going to be a beautiful 3 bdrm 3 bathroom penthouse on the third floor. It will have a gourmet kitchen with a large 8 ft island for cooking with an ocean view. It comes with a dishwasher and high end fixtures for the discriminating buyer.
Our buyers at all three projects are from North America half from the U.S. half from Canada. All are like minded people looking for a better and more affordable retirement or just a 3 to 6 month vacation home in paradise.
All our septic systems are American style and accept toilet tissue, something you don’t see much of here in Ecuador. All buildings are engineered to a 7.5 earthquake. All our projects have a 3 meter wall for privacy and security. The fence to the beach is high quality heavy gauge galvanized steel. You will not see any unsightly cyclone fence at any of our projects. We spend the extra money to make our projects stand above the rest with solid hardwood cabinets, doors and closets verses the typical premade melamine commonly seen in here.
We encourage you to come for a visit and rent one of the condos at Playa Dorada to see for yourself just how nice your life could be at Playa del Sol. Here is a web site with rental information. http://www.vrbo.com/413957
If you decide to buy the rent money will go towards your down payment.
You could also have your condo as a rental with a local manager handling every aspect. We are the first luxury condominiums built along this beautiful 17 mile beach and rental return has been excellent.

We DO NOT investigate properties when they are advertised so be sure to complete your due diligence and always use an independent Ecuador attorney who represents you (not the seller) when you buy real estate in Ecuador. Also we want to be sure that you check the claims of the developer/seller and make sure that you are satisfied. We also recommend that you rent before you buy and become familiar with Ecuador.
Learn about Ecuador in Florida.
Day two of our International Investing and Business Seminar next week in Eustis Florida is about Ecuador Living. Talk about catching an early wave… Merri and I caught the Ecuador expat trend right at its beginning 17 years ago. We brought readers who joined us in Ecuador then… some amazing opportunities. This cycle has matured but there are still great bargains if you know what to do. No one has as much experience and as many contacts in this field. This experience is also dependable. We do not sell Ecuador real estate so you won’t be hearing any hidden agendas.
For example after more than a dozen years of traveling… working… buying and selling real estate and running businesses in Ecuador… we led Jean Marie Butterlin to the coast and he began scouring the beaches from Manta, north to Pedernales… finding the bargains…. meeting the landowners… understanding the rules, regulations and customs.
That experience made him the expert of Ecuador beach real estate so that bargains could be found and so his clients could overcome the biggest problems and intelligently buy real estate on the coast.
We’ll share how to buy beach property intelligently.
You’ll learn how to overcome one of the biggest mistakes most real estate buyers make on the beach.
Dr. Andres Cordova will speak and join me in updating Ecuador real estate and residency rules.
Dr. Andres Cordova speaking at our seminars.
Andres is our friend and Ecuador attorney. He is the grandson of one of Ecuador’s more famous presidents and was a senior partner in a law firm that represents Ecuador’s treasury.
We’ll also review how to create an Ecuador export business as Merri and I have for many years.
We’ll review The Ecuadorshop Logistics service that provides all these services for exporters in importers into the USA.
We’ll share how Roberto provides an exclusive service that helps readers who export from Ecuador monitor production and quality and assure timely delivery.
This is a great service that provides every detail for importing products into the USA. We have used this logistics service ourselves for years and became the largest shipper of Ecuador roses last Christmas. One big benefit is that the service can send each product direct to the buyer in the USA. The Ecuadorshop Logistics service makes small and medium scale Ecuador exporting possible.
Join Merri and me at this seminar – February 1-2-3 , 2013, Eustis, Florida.

Ecuador Living Club members can enjoy discounts at Cuenca hotels as well.
This course really works!
An M.D. who attended wrote: We want to thank you plus all the others for making the class such a fun and rewarding experience. I took Spanish as an undergraduate and lasted two days before dropping the class due to my own anxieties. Over the years I have tried to learn French, Italian, and Spanish yet again using a variety of methods such as Rosetta Stone, Berlitz etc. and was never successful. I finally feel like I can be successful at learning to converse at Spanish–in fact already feel successful! Thanks so much for teaching an old dog some new tricks. We’re both looking forward to continuing the learning process, having fun doing so, and taking more classes.
See a ten minute video of Gary Scott and Pronunciation coach Don Childs showing how to get started creating Spanish sentences right now.
Unlock the power of your untapped knowledge.
Super Thinking + Spanish course goes beyond just learning to speak Spanish.
There are numerous little known, but scientifically proven ways to enhance the speed, accuracy and efficiency of your decision making process for greater wealth, health and happiness. In just three days you can gain almost amazing learning skills. Plus you become skilled in Spanish as a bonus.
In just three days? Sound too good to be true?
This is not a gimmick nor a trick. At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian, Dr. Georgi Lozanov. In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better.
The 3 Day Spanish system includes some of Dr. Lozanov’s original work that uses music to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated. The course integrates the use of music with 17 lessons that teach you over 4,000 Spanish words.
Fluency in a language is considered to come when you know 1,200 words. To prove that it is possible to gain this and much more, let me share just one of the 17 lessons.
Here are the thousands of Spanish words lesson #1: All words in Spanish and English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. For example action is accion, education educacion, manipulation, manipulacion, etc.
Now you already literally know hundreds of Spanish nouns. This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons you gain. The next lesson teaches you how to pronounce each of these nouns. Then you learn in a third lesson almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.
You also learn how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds). This simple lesson leaves you sounding like a Spanish professor.
There are many other lessons. For example lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything you want in Spanish. Lesson six gives you the valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples your Spanish capacity with yesterday, now and tomorrow.
By the end of the three day course you will feel quite comfortable speaking Spanish without stress!
A delegate who learned Super Spanish outlined how this course can help you. After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible! Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador. The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Thinking Super Spanish. And learning Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course. In recent years, I’ve rarely relaxed (No wonder I have had high blood pressure!) . In class, the past three days, I’ve been introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music. What a blessing! I’m inclined to make this a daily part of my life. Rob Christi
The Super Spanish helps you start speaking and understanding Spanish right away. This can help you speak Spanish faster and make your traditional Spanish course easier and more effective.
A Livescience.com article helps explain why this course works and how delegates are creating Spanish sentences by the first lunch break and can communicate well in Spanish after just three days. This article by Jeremy Hsu, LiveScience Senior Writer, is entitled “CIA Seeks Anyone, Anyone Who Can Speak 2 Languages”.
Four important points in the article are shown in excerpts below with my comments to show what has been wrong with traditional Spanish courses and why the Super Thinking tactic is perfect for this program.
This three day course gets you speaking and thinking Spanish all the time so you can use and/or think Spanish every day… and communicating even from the beginning. In this way the education grows even when Spanish is not being spoken.
The Super Thinking course first integrates the brain. Students learn better with relaxed concentration. Then the course teaches them 17 simple lessons so they know 4005 words in Spanish and can use them to create sentences. In this way, you can communicate in just three days.
Travel, accommodations and food are not included.
Here are what delegates wrote about a Super Thinking + Spanish seminar.
“Hi Gary & Merri, You two are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Well, as you can see prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!” Suzy Kurinsky
Another wrote: Thanks for the Spanish course. This technique is truly a breakthrough in learning. I believe I learned more Spanish in four days than I learned in four weeks in a previously attended Costa Rica language school. The Costa Rica school taught a very limited number of memorized words and phrases. Ted.
Another delegate at a Super thinking plus Spanish seminar wrote: The Super Thinking approach exposed us to a broad variety of works and the technique needed to expand the language. Again, Thanks for the experience.
One attendee wrote: I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything during the seminar. You guys are indeed a shining example of having a business that truly serves others. And thanks for the extra time spent and good things taught to me personally. I have begun to implement them already and will continue to apply them. And you might be interested that waiting for my flight home I ended up sitting next to a woman from Quito and could understand some of what she said in a cell phone conversation. We talked a little and she said that I should visit Ecuador! Thank you again for your real graciousness and acceptance! I will also write to Merri and thank her as well. And I wish that I could do something for you two!
Another wrote: Thank you! We always look forward to spending time and learning about so many fascinating things. Like Minded people and Vivaldi! What could be better?
Another sent this note: Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish! I really enjoyed the workshop.
Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes. I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra. I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life. I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.
Thank you for sending the file of the 4005 Spanish words. This will be very helpful in my daily review of Spanish.
Another emailed this: Every day I’m becoming more proficient in Spanish. As I get ready to do something, I think about how I would say it in Spanish. Thank you again for a Super Workshop! With love and blessings,
Another: It certainly was an interesting and intriguing four days for me. I enjoyed the Spanish but even more so, all the tentacles that extended during those four days that went into so many different directions.
I grew up in a very SQUARE box with loving and intelligent parents but my world remained within this box, unable to see beyond those walls, as I was never encouraged to “think outside the box”.. Mike has been opening doors and leading me outside this box but because of my upbringing I have not completely embraced or understood what was beyond those doors he opened for me. As I have gotten older I have become more open to the world outside those doors yet those old tapes continue to play and I have not been able to completely release myself and experience all that can be.
Another shared this: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me, I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible” and I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted. I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.
I found all the information you offered on healing, realigning the body, nutrition, etc. so fascinating, have you ever thought about doing a course on just that? With the aging population and the health care issues I think it would be not only an interesting course but one that would be very beneficial to so many. I, personally, would love to learn more about what you talked about and plan on purchasing the book, “Body Renewal, the Lost Art of Self Healing” for my Kindle.
Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!
Another: We had fun at Disney World on Monday and sat beside several Personnes Espaniol. We could understand them however I couldn’t make sentences quickly, but could say one or two word phrases that were understood. We arrived home at 3am yesterday – the airlines were very late in Denver due to a crew incident.
I found myself making up sentences all day yesterday as I was running errands. John knows more vocabulary than I at this point as he has studied Spanish previously. Today I will begin to review the lessons and construct sentences to send to you and the group – as you suggested below. Es en BUENO sugestion!!! I also received the email Merri sent with the 4005 words and started to scroll through those yesterday.
Another: Thank YOU for everything you have done to create and bring this wonderful experience to all of us. It takes a well sychronized team of people to put on an effective, change producing seminar! I have given many seminars and enjoyed the experience immensely. The outcome is even better! Estoy une infantil de Super Thinking and Spanish, y es possible aprender en tiempo.
John and I both thank all of you for the wonderful experience – we are working now to clear up things so we can leave for the Galapagos and Ecuador November 25th – December 20th. Nosotros tiene muchos appreciacion! Gracias y Abrazos,
Another: Muchas gracias para la informacion! I had a wonderful time at the Super Learning + Spanish weekend!… excelente!
I was impressed with your depth of knowledge on numerous subjects and your ability to speak about them with exceptional recall. Con mucho apriciar, P.S. Yo estoy enteresado en Espanol #2.
One delegate even explained how after our course they ended up as the accidental translator: Gary, I have sent a couple of messages, and a story of Mike being able to translate yesterday for a Spanish person who couldn’t understand what a man was trying to tell him!
We loved the seminar, and are excited to put the super learning to practice, and especially the great company of like-minded people (especially G & M!) Muchas Gracias! Tiene an excellante dias.
One delegate communicated entirely in Spanish…. after just our Super Thinking + Spanish seminar: Buenas dias nuestra maestra perfectamente, Merri! Muchas gracias por la lista espanol.
Claro, David y yo aprendemous mucho espanol el fine de semana pasada. Gary y usted nos hacen espanol muy facil aprender. Es importante continuar a practicar espanol cada dia. Gracias tambien! Buenas suerte…hasta la vista! Con mucho amor,
Comments from another delegate: I wanted you to know that the Spanish course has proven incredibly helpful. Dealing with internet service providers and shopping for appliances, etc., normally would have required me hiring a translator to follow me around. While it may not be pretty or 100% grammatically correct, I am understood. Thank you! Saludos!
Delegates during a relaxation session.
Another a dentist said: I was so delighted with my experience at the Spanish training. I felt more confident of ability to pronounce Spanish than I ever was of French or German. Funny… I did not think I remembered any French or German but when I cannot remember the Spanish words the German and French popped up. Practicing my pronunciation made my trip home go faster. I never enjoyed pronouncing either of the other two, but this was fun. It is hard to fall asleep at the wheel when you are moving your mouth to speak Spanish. It does work your mouth in a different way. I realized that you have to say each syllable slowly and correctly(until you get it perfectly) and when you do it is impressive.
It was amazing to see us all writing such advanced sentences after a few days and so much more enjoyable than having to go through the alphabet to build the words to build the sentences.
Rick Brown has created his own programs attending a one year Super Spanish training program from Merri and me. He has now been teaching this course for five years. He has moved to Cuenca Ecuador and teaches this course once or twice a year.
The Course will be conducted at the beautful American run B & B in Cuenca.
