Aaaaaaah Bahia...pretty, picturesque, rugged beauty (when you're not looking at the condos, clean...too condo-ish. Our first impression of Bahia was of amazement because it was a clean and quiet little coastal town. One whole side of the peninsula is lined with condos and it was barren. This video is what we observed. The video is going to be expanded upon in more detail in our coastal Ecuador guidebook...The bottom line is Bahia is not for everyone, so see what you can glean from the video. Living in Bahia full time will greatly depend on your needs and circumstances, and only you can figure that out. BTW, we're still at the coast and we have visited several more cities on the coast so stay tuned!
