When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Ecuador, they replied...

"Note that you will not find current US style healthcare in most areas outside of large cities, it is more like 1980s. Good, adequate, not fantastic. Fine for daily stuff, maybe not good for you if you have some more complicated medical issues. My guess would be a beach town near a large city where you can go for more advanced healthcare. Larger cities will also be more likely to have English speaking doctors and dentists," commented one expat who made the move to Ecuador.
