Welcome to Pasatiempo del Sur

Your home away from home in Puerto Cayo, Ecuador. While you stay with us, you will not only have your own private, spacious, fully furnished apartment, you will also be a member of our lovely gated villa community featuring a lush, landscaped lawn, a swimming pool, a BBQ pit, a laundry room, and a recreational palapa complete with hammocks, lighting, and an outdoor dining area. Twice per week, Fernando’s food truck stops by to supply you with fresh, locally-sourced fruit, vegetables, and more. Others will occasionally stop by with delightful treats like fresh seafood and raw local honey. There’s even an ice cream truck! If there’s something else you need, you may walk or take a taxi into the quaint, quiet town of Puerto Cayo, where you can find fresh-caught seafood, handmade baked goods, and a variety of shops, restaurants, and bars to meet your every need. Yet Puerto Cayo is more a sleepy fishing village than a bustling tourist town, which means you are in for a truly authentic taste of coastal
Ecuador.

Pasatiempo del Sur is just a one-minute walk away from Puerto Cayo beach, a vast, vacant beach with soft sands and stunning panoramic views. Should you wish to explore the region’s natural beauty even further, you can head south into Machalilla National Park, which includes Los Frailes, one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Ecuador. Farther south is Aqua Blanca, a site featuring pre-columbian ruins, a hot springs lake, hiking trails, and horseback riding. Continue south to find Puerto Lopez, where you can catch tours to Isla de la Plata—the “Poor Man’s Galápagos.” Whether you are an adventurer or a beach bum, a couple or a family, you can rest assured that you will have a unique beach vacation here at Pasatiempo del Sur, Puerto Cayo, Ecuador.

We were only able to stay three days but wished we had more time. Ron and Janet were so helpful and made us feel right at home. They have developed a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere and adding more to each and every day. I want...More

This is a beautiful place very close to the ocean, very relaxed. There is a very well maintained swimming pool, a huge, beautiful garden and lovely areas to relax. The apartment we had was fantastic with plenty of room, TV, sitting area, hot water, plenty of cooking utensils etc. Drinking water was provided as well. The owners are great, very friendly and laid back. Puerto Cayo itself is a lovely little town with some shops, restaurants and friendly people. Manta is only an hour away. Highly recommended for a relaxed stay by the sea.

I have stayed in the beautuful patio unit twice. Both times I stayed for several months. The owners are so friendly and really want you to enjoy your stay there. It was great to have wifi, cable TV and all utilities included. I will probably be returning again soon. Love Ron and Janet...best hosts I've ever had!

We rented for two months and could not be happier ; Ron and Janet are fantastic hosts, and over the top in terms of being helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone wanting a beautiful secure spot to enjoy this fabulous place!

We had an amazing stay in the 1BR apartment in Pasa Tiempo del Sur. The space is bright and clean, well decorated and comfortable. Just sitting on our porch, an incredible sunset spectacle enchanted us every evening. This is the perfect place to unwind, enjoy the simple things in life. Good weather, hammocks in the shade, a swimming pool, the beach 1 minute walking away, fantastic hosts and a fantastic bed/matrass. What else could one possibly need?!
