How Easy and Fast is Transportation in North Coast Manabi

The highway that is linking this part of the coast to Quito is done in many areas and it is being worked on 7 days a week to finish it. I am always amazed at the progress as I go back and forth to Vista Pacifica from other areas.

I decided to drive from Vista Pacifica to various points along the coast to get a sense of the times it takes now as opposed to when I first began coming to Ecuador.

Below are a few of the times that it will take you to get to various areas:

Vista Pacifica to Pedernales to the north………………………………….25 minutes.

Vista Pacifica to Jama to the south (and the new hospital)……………….15 minutes.

Vista Pacifica to Bahia de Caraquez………………………………………60 minutes.

Vista Pacifica to Portoviejo…………………………………………………..2 hours.

Vista Pacifica to Manta……………………………………………2 hours 30 minutes.

 

Prior to the road improvements it took a lot longer to get to all of the destinations I mention above, and when complete the drive times will be even less.

Our closest airport is in San Vicente to the south, 60 minutes away and with the completion of the bridge linking Bahia to San Vicente it won’t be long until 737 service starts to fly here. As of now the airport is open to small private aircraft, and is open daily.

 

Come and see for yourself why I think this part of the Pacific Coast and Vista Pacifica are truly a paradise.
