Bahia de Caraquez Ecuador - Bahia de Caraquez became an Ecocity on February 23, 1999 due to the devastation caused by two natural disasters in 1997 and 1998: the "El Niño" phenomenon and an earthquake in august of the later year. Due to the high magnitude of destruction, Bahía had to completely reconstruct itself. Funding and consulting between Japanese organization ACTMANG, Fundación Stuarium and other public and private organizations in Bahía, the city was reconstructed in an ecological manner. The governing authorities of the District of Sucre made the Official Declaration and since then Bahía de Caráquez has been planning it´s development within the sustainable principals of an Ecocity.

The city of Bahía de Caráquez is located in a sandy peninsula in the western coast of Ecuador. It has shown an important development during the last 15 to 20 years, since it has become one of the country's most attractive resort areas due to its beauty and relative closeness to the cities of Quito and Guayaquil, the two biggest cities in the country. It takes some five hours to reach Bahía by car from Quito and four hours from Guayaquil.

At present the population of Bahía may be estimated in 30.000 people located on the urban area and its surroundings. This population is substantially increased during the summer, due to the tourist affluence. In fact, August is usually a very busy time for the zone. 

The peninsula is elongated to the N-NW direction and its coastal line has suffered important changes during the last 50 years. Those lands have been used later for developing the modern part of the city.

The most recent construction in Bahía correspond to 6 to 12 story apartment buildings with modern architectural designs. Long spans, big windows and balconies, free stories to allow the location of swimming pools.

La Piedra Hotel offers 42 spacious and comfortable rooms with air conditioning and cable television. The architecture is traditional in wood with art nouveau features, which gives it a good taste of the past. This is a cozy and comfortable place, in front of the sea, with grassy areas, a pool, volleyball court, restaurant and bar.

Ubicada en la parte central de la Costa del Pacífico, Manabí ofrece hermosas playas, encantadores pueblos de pescadores y los principales centros turísticos como San Vicente, San Jacinto, San Clemente, Puerto Cayo, Puerto López, Crucita, Canoa y Pedernales, estos lugares son muy visitados durante todo el año y ofrecen paz, tranquilidad y rica gastronomía. La vegetación circundante está compuesta por manglares, matorrales y bosques. Lugares como Puerto López y Pedernales, se han convertido en centros poblados con buena infraestructura hotelera y puntos de partida hacia destinos como el Parque Nacional Machalilla. Hosterías construidas con caña guadúa y otros materiales de la región, son parte de su atractivo. Playas del Ecuador Manta Manabi
