What do I need to know about living in Crucita?

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

"Crucita is a popular destination for expats due to its affordable cost of living, beautiful beaches, and warm climate. Before retiring in Crucita, expats should be aware of several important factors. Firstly, it's important to understand the cost of living. While it is generally lower than in many Western countries, prices for certain goods and services may be higher than expected. It's also worth noting that while healthcare in Ecuador is relatively inexpensive, it may not be up to the standards that some expats are used to. Secondly, expats should be aware of the language barrier. While many locals speak some English, Spanish is the official language of Ecuador. Taking Spanish lessons before moving can be very beneficial. Thirdly, it's important to understand the local culture and customs. Ecuadorians are generally very friendly and welcoming, but there may be cultural differences that could take some getting used to. Fourthly, expats should be aware of the visa requirements for living in Ecuador. It's important to research this thoroughly and ensure all paperwork is in order before making the move. Lastly, it's worth considering the climate. Crucita has a tropical climate with a rainy season from December to May and a dry season from June to November. Some people may find the heat and humidity challenging. In conclusion, retiring in Crucita, Ecuador can be a wonderful experience, but it's important to do thorough research and preparation before making the move," said one expat who made the move to Crucita.
