I have read nothing about air conditioning along the coast of Ecuador. I am especially interesed in the area around Jama and Bahia. Can it be found in rentals on the coast? Can you add a/c if it isn’t in the house initially? Thanks you.

I don’t know about adding A/C to a coastal rental house, but we looked extensively at condos for sale in the area around Manta & Bahia, and there were A/C units in all the newer buildings, and some of the older ones as well. (And we loved the area and ended up purchasing, too.)

Hi nanclev, you’ll be surprised, along the coast AC is really not necessary most of the time, it is quite cool in Ecuador, usually around 70-75 degrees.

At night, it’s often comfortable to sleep wrapped in blankets.

Yes, you can get AC centrally installed in your house or buy portable AC machines any handyman can fix into your wall.

See you down here, Dom
