My husband and I are researching the best city for us. The coast is not for him . I love it though. Looking for a city less than 100,000. Good access to healthcare. 3,000 to 5,000 elevation. Thoughts appreciated

Good healthcare, you are limited to Guayaquil, Quito and Cuenca.

You are not going to find good healthcare in a city of less than 100k people, unless you are within travelling distance of the above three.

Other cities have alright healthcare but do not cover it all, which Quito / Guayaquil and Cuenca do

Try Yunguilla.. Although there is no healtcare to speak of it is only 90 minutes from Cuenca and the climate is warmer. Many Cuencanos have weekend houses there due to the better weather.

Try Cotacachi about 10,000 folks and within 30 minutes of Ibarra which has numerous hospitals. Also within 2 hrs of Quito which has the best hospitals in Ecuador. About 800 gringos and very good temperatures. mostly 60 to 75
