Life in Ecuador
An Amazing Adventure

Ecuador is a tiny South American country that is becoming very popular. Why? One reason is the amazing amount of diversity. It has even been referred to as "mega-diverse" because of its numerous cultures, climates and wildlife. 

This has caused an influx of people that are visiting or have moved to Ecuador.

This website was created to show Ecuador from all angles...including the everyday reality of living in (or visiting) a foreign country. I truly love this country and all it has to offer and because of that I really enjoy sharing what I experience here with others. Learn more about me and about how I ended up in Ecuador.

Moving to Ecuador

Well-known magazines and websites have rated Ecuador as one of the top retirement destinations in the world due, in part, to its quiet, simple lifestyle and low cost of living. Thus, many have thought of moving here.

How do you know if life in Ecuador is right for you? I personally recommend visiting for yourself before making the move. But we can help you get an idea of what to expect.

Just about anyone will find a place they love... but be ready to spend some time looking to find the best place for you.
