What do I need to know about living in Ayangue?

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

"Before retiring in Ayangue, expats should know that the cost of living is significantly lower than in many Western countries, making it an attractive option for retirees. The official language is Spanish, so learning the language or having a basic understanding would be beneficial. The healthcare system in Ecuador is generally good, but it's advisable to have a comprehensive health insurance plan. Ayangue is known for its warm, tropical climate, so expats should be prepared for hot and humid weather. The town is small and tranquil, offering a relaxed lifestyle with beautiful beaches and natural surroundings. However, it may lack some amenities and luxuries that one might be accustomed to in larger cities. Ecuador uses the US dollar as its official currency, which can make financial transitions easier for American retirees. It's also important to know that while Ecuador has a relatively low crime rate, petty crime like pickpocketing can occur, so it's important to take standard safety precautions. Ecuador has a residency program for retirees with a pension, which can make the immigration process easier. However, it's important to consult with an immigration lawyer to understand the legal requirements and process. Lastly, it's recommended to visit Ayangue before making the decision to retire there, to ensure it suits your lifestyle and preferences," commented one expat who made the move to Ayangue.
