What do I need to know before moving to Guayaquil?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Guayaquil, they said...

"Get a realtor. Look around a lot. Start and finish with Sanborondon if your budget allows. Venture out to Los Ceibos and Via la Costa if the distance from the "fun areas" of Guayaquil isn't an issue. Talk to other expats (if you can find them)," said a member in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
