About Us

Al & Linda

Hello - Hola

I am the administrator of www.mantaexpatsonline.com. My wife and I have lived in Manta, Ecuador since June 2010. We are originally from North Carolina where we both retired at a fairly young age. Linda sold her business after 18 years and I retired from NC law enforcement/training. We researched other countries and after spending 4 weeks in Manta we decided to move.

Manta Views


We lived in a condominium building overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Everyday, we hear and see the ocean, swimmers, surfers, kite surfers, fishing boats and the fabulous sunsets.

Living in Manta


Our choice was Manta because of the ocean, warm weather 24/7, fresh seafood & friendly Ecuadorian people.

Manta is about 300,000 people and is the largest fish producing city in South America. Your Sunkist & Bumble Bee tuna comes from Manta, Ecuador.

I developed MantaExpatsOnline in July of 2011 in an effort to bring together expats living in Manta / Manabí Province and to provide a focal point of information for everyone to see.
