In Ayampe, the Pacific Ocean and the unique lush coastal rainforest meet to give birth to what we call paradise.

Ayampe is also home to the Jocotoco bird reserve and some of the last mangrove forests in this part of the world.

It is a place full of biodiversity, very well protected and respected from its earliest recent inhabitants to the global community that now calls Ayampe home.

You can feel free and safe to walk on the beach at midnight, or explore the depths of the jungle just across town.

It is a place where you can rest on the beach and not be bothered… it is a place where you can really let go!

ABOUT vistamar

It's all about comfort, relaxation & adventure for us.

​Whether you want to come and relax, cowork, surf, adventure out into the jungle, or explore the National Parks...

Our three story wooden house was built with the goal to create a space to enjoy the natural and rustic beauty of Ayampe while also being able to enjoy the modern comforts that we all seek while on vacation. ​

We believe living in nature doesn’t mean sacrificing comfort.

Vistamar borrows from the finest attributes of a guest house, hostel, hotel and B&B; privacy when you want it and comfortable spaces to meet travelers from around the world.​​

Vistamar leads and coordinates EXPERIENCES such as surf lessons, yoga classes, horseback riding, guided hikes, and more.

After just a few short years of vacationers, travelers, online nomadic professionals, surfers and nature lovers enjoying Vistamar, we decided to expand the project and make more space by building MANGO HOUSE (half a block away from Vistamar!)

Custom tailored trips!

Surfing, adventure and community is what led us to come to Ayampe, and we want to share this passion with you.

We offer first class surf and yoga vacation experiences, coupled with exquisite culinary delicacies.

Or whether you want to come and Co-Work (and Co-Create!) with your team... and balance work and fun...

We custom tailor the trips to your specific dates, your skill level and what you want to get out of your trip.

Let's get it!
