Manta's airport is serviced by several flights from Quito Daily. Other Things to NoteMy wife (from Boston) and I try to make the apartment as much Americanized and comfortable as possible, there is a stove, a fridge, running water, warm showers etc...We do not have a washer and dryer machine in the condo (the developer did not build it with the installations in place). I do not have A/C in any of the rooms but I must mention that temperatures between June and December are fresh to fairly cold from 18 C to 25 C, plus the ocean breeze is very refreshing, . Temperatures in the this area range from average low of 20C to an average high of 27C (68F to 80F) from June through November and 23C to 30C (73F to 86F) from December through May. I do not have cable TV and WiFi access you can probably get it via cell phone and /or with the local cell phone companies, cable companies have not reach the area yet. These are also the reasons why my condo's rent is lower than others when you compare the price with with similar condo's in the area.
If you live in Ecuador you should bring your own sheets, pillowcases and towels, if you choose not to bring them, I can provide them for a onetime fee of $ 40 cash payable at your arrival. If you come from a foreign country I will waive the fee and provide them free of charge, there is no need to bring those from your home country
Potable water is provided to the condo via tankers to a reservoir in the condo for 25$ that would last for about 5-7 days depending on the usage, I would provide you with the first tanker....but if you need more it is on you...just give the 25$ to the concierge in the condo and he will arrange for the tanker to come and deliver.
