#5: The Cotacachi Inn Land of the Sun (formerly Hotel Meson de las Flores)… is for sale.

The hotel was donated to Land of the Sun Foundation to help promote the economy of Cotacachi and Ecuador.  The trustees of the foundation feel they have accomplished their purpose and now that Cotacachi has a far more thriving economy, a new owner with new ambitions can take this wonderful building to the next step.

All profits from the hotel have been used to expand the economy in Cotacachi or to provide scholarships to youth in Ecuador and the hotel is being offered for substantially less than the foundation paid into this building.


Inn Land of the Sun courtyard is Cotacachi’s oldest hotel located in a 180 year old colonial building with open air court yard just off Cotacachi’s main plaza and next to Cotacachi’s largest Cathedral.

Cotacachi hotel El Meson de las Flores

Here are some snapshots of the Inn Land of the Sun.

The entrance of the hotel in Cotacachi is 56 steps to a magnificent cathedral and park.

The village is quiet and peaceful and once inside Inn Land of the Sun you feel the flavor of its colonial past.

lotmapFrom now through the month of May, we are offering two year financing on lots 31 and back. You pay 30% down, $400 per/month and then the remainder of the balance at the end of 2 years.

We have specifically designed this promotion to help you leverage time as an ally in achieving your dream home on the coast of Ecuador.

For example, a lot that would cost you $35,000, would break down as follows:
Step 1 – 30% deposit = $10,500
Step 2 – 2 years of $400 p/mth payments = $9,200
Step 3 – final payment of remaining amount = $15,300

This is absolutely 0% interest based.

(NOTE: This promotion is absolutely 0% interest based and applies to all lots in rows 31 – 45 and we will only be offering it to the first 40 lots sold using the promotion).

In both Las Palmas (our first community) and Palmera Beach (our second) we have clients that have sold their lots at almost double what they originally paid. So, whether you are investing or looking for the perfect community to enjoy sunsets from your rooftop deck on, Grand Palmas is definitely the place to be.

Grand Palmas offers its residents:

  • Amazing beachfront community
  • 2 fully complete clubhouse areas
  • gym
  • pool
  • Onsite guards and gated community access
  • Quick access to town and services
  • An absolutely amazing community experience!

Grand Palmas isn’t our first community which is to say, not only do we have a well-founded reputation of building what we commit to but we have gotten very good at making amazing community experiences also. We are locals in Puerto Cayo and part of driving around and helping to build our growing community is what is most important to us.

With a nod of appreciation in thanks to what has been a journey of truly successful relationship building with so many of our clients and community members along the way, we decided to take out a couple months as summer in the states gears up with a little bit of paying-it-forward.

Could this deal actually get any better?

Didn’t the title say something about getting a trip to Ecuador for free?

Yes and yes.

For the next 60 days, we are going to offer the following added bonus.


We will offer up to $1,500 cash back on flights with purchase. You show us your ticket receipt and we give you the money with purchase of a lot, that simple. Are you just one person traveling vs. a couple? No problem, we’ll cover up to $1,000 for your airfare and a 2-night hotel stay here in Puerto Cayo at the Sanctuary Hotel.

Interested in learning more or just want to chat about how to take advantage of the opportunity? Give us a call or email.

If you have any questions, we absolutely love helping with Ecuador even in general. We spend a large portion of our time working with our free conferences and outreach programs to simply help people sift through the idea of moving and living in Ecuador. So, call, email or come visit us in person. We are happy to help.

All the best,
from the entire Grand Palmas family.
