In Mirador San Jose
Mirador San Jose is located at the Playa San Jose, Montecristi, Province of Manabi. It is located at km 607 of the Ruta Del Spondylus, 57 km south of Manta, and approximately the same distance north of Puerto Lopez. It is at a latitude of -1.13 (south of the equator).
An association will be created when the project will be completed. Until then, the Mirador San Jose will be the financial manager of the development.
Yes. First of all, the area around the Mirador San Jose is very safe. That being said, to ensure maximum precautions for owners who leave their homes vacant during certain periods of time, the perimeter is closed and the access is controlled 24/7.
The temperature of Ecuador is warm and stable. In the region of the Mirador San Jose, residents are particularly pampered. The average minimum temperature is 21 degrees at night and the maximum is about 29 degrees during the day. There are really only two seasons: dry and green! Quite unlike other tropical countries where the rainy season makes it less hospitable for 6 months of the year, Ecuador is pleasant year-round!
There will be grocery stores on site at the Mirador. Smaller grocery stores can presently be found in the nearby villages that are just ten minutes away. Major supermarkets are found throughout Manta, the major centre in the region that is less than an hour away.
Most major airlines fly to Quito or Guayaquil and there are many convenient connecting domestic flights to Manta. Once in Manta, a shuttle or a taxi will take you directly to the Mirador San Jose in under an hour. Good news! Manta Airport has been receiving international flights since 2014, which suggests an increasing accessibility from Canada in the coming years.

At the present time, municipal taxes on land are calculated at 2% of US $4 per square metre. So on a lot that is 150 sq. m. you can expect to pay 2% x US $4 x 150m = US $12 per year. Once a home is built, municipal taxes rise to approximately US $350 per year for a 1 000 sq. ft. home
When your home is inhabited, typical service costs (estimate based on double occupancy at current rates, actual costs will depend on the actual use) are: Electricity: US $0.13 per kW-h, Water: US $15 per month, Gas (propane) for cooking, drying and water heater: US $10 to US $20 per month.
