Situated on the banks of Ecuador’s Pacific Coast, Bahia de Caraquez is known as an eco-city, as well as a gateway to the country’s pristine mangrove forests, bird sanctuaries and ancient archeological past. The 18-room Casa Ceibo is located on the mangrove shores minutes from the center of Bahia de Caraquez.

The vision for Casa Ceibo grew from a recent partnership between Daniel Jacome, drummer of Ecuador’s Tercer Mundo rock band, and Charles Van Diver, an established developer from the United States. Both will be present for the grand opening in Bahia de Caraquez, as well as a second debut event scheduled for October 28 at Quito’s Swiss Hotel.

“Casa Ceibo is all about delivering a superior experience, and both grand opening celebrations will spotlight examples of this from the food to the wine, entertainment, service and overall ambiance,” says Jacome. “Our guests will taste samplings from our gold-medal, internationally award-winning chef, Hugo Jimenez, and sip house cocktails while hearing the sounds of Tercer Mundo and other Ecuadorian musicians in person. We’ll have famous Ecuadorian artists who’ve contributed to Casa Ceibo’s aesthetics on hand, as well as other local craftsman whose architectural talents can be seen throughout Casa Ceibo.”
