What do I need to know before moving to Cumbaya?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Cumbaya, they said:

"Cumbaya is a small city located in the Tungurahua province in the northeast of the country. It is well known for its beautiful landscape and mild climate. Expats should be aware of Ecuador's relatively high cost of living, which is even more pronounced in larger cities like Quito. Expats should also take the time to research reliable healthcare options as well as housing and transportation services in the area. Additionally, since Cumbaya is situated in the Andes at a high elevation, expats should prepare for the adjustments some people experience when acclimating to a higher altitude. Lastly, expats should prepare to become part of a very welcoming community with strong cultural traditions and an appreciation for Ecuadorian hospitality," remarked one expat in Cumbaya, Ecuador, Ecuador.
