Yikes did I send it already? I was going to rewrite! His name is Juan Carrasco, can be found through Nexus Language School. Marcella can help you obtain him. His strength is that he is more than a guide or interpreter, he is a cultural interpreter, and amazing!
I'm in need of a native English teacher who can teach business English 2 days a week. Mondays and Tuesdays 12-13:30.
Payment is R$75/ 1.5 hour class.
Please message me your experience.

replied to the thread Relocating Family
on the Ecuador forum on August 27, 2014:
My wife and I are thinking about relocating to the area as an early retirement with our two kids. I am in my early 40's and would like to get information from someone who moved from the US with their family to the area. If you can be of assistance, please respond. Thanks.
Adalt2, what area of Ecuador were you considering?
There are also correspondence schools that are available and are well credited, from the US. Still, if your kids don't have a way of making new friends and becoming part of the local culture, they won't be happy campers. So you'll have to figure that part out as well. Kids pick up Spanish soooooo fast, but they must be immersed in it for that to happen quickly.
Also, small towns are safer than large towns. But you will have to find activities. And be close enough to a larger city (not 5 hours away) for added entertainment.
Are you thinking of the Mountains or the Beach or the Jungle? There are folks out there with kids here, but it might help if you were more specific.
Hi, our family it's planning to move to Cuenca, because we have some people that we already know, and the life look a little easy that Quito and Guayaquil. We have 7 and 11 year old, you will need private school. Good luck.
replied to the thread Rental Apartments in Costa Rica
on the Costa Rica forum:
Can anyone say the best way to find affordables rentals in CR? I here there are decent properties siutable for my wife and I for around $700 US. I am doing some upfront planning and want to know the real facts before I get too excited. I've been to Tamarindo and Coco once for a 2 week stay.

Renting a small place 'in a mountains' may offer you less choices when looking on the internet. Best to find one, once here.
And expect to pay up to $1000 for a vehicle, a 4x4 for mountain use as mandatory coverage generally costs an 'extra' $15-$20 per day.....and gas is not cheap!

wow, I have just read thru the entire comments listed. We are looking to visit for a month to try out the CR in June 2015. We will be looking for something small perhaps, even a studio probably, the mountain areas. We are world travelers so we pack light and need just enough space to sleep and eat in or eat out.
My real concern is the cost of renting a car for 1 month. Is there a way to avoid the high cost?

on the Ecuador Welcome Forum forum on August 27, 2014:
Dumb question, but I need to ask....After you have visited most of the "sights" what do you do for entertainment ? I know the choices I have in the US, but they may not exist elsewhere.
Sinego...I wasted about 15 minutes of my life trying to find this thread again...
Just wanted to say I enjoyed your posts.
Alittle showy on the "Cuenca's so Awsome" part.. you know, overflowing with the old and new culture as it quickly becomes San Fran.
That oh- were- so- well- healed Cuencapat attitude. EGads.
Anyway, very interesting points. Really enjoyed the read when you posted it but wasn't able to say so.
Thanks for taking the time to put it together.
