When we asked people why foreigners move to Ecuador, they responded...

"Temperate climate?? Low crime rate?? Get real. Guayaquil is a big, noisy, dirty, industrial, crime--ridden city with daily temperatures in the mid-to-high 90s, and humidity off the charts. Oh, and don't forget the mosquitos," wrote a member who made the move to Guayaquil, Ecuador.

"We love it here....just outside like suburbs of Sangolqui which has population of about 75,000. Sangolqui has a very indigenous but Ecuadorian yuppie vibe. We have everything close-by, shopping mall, local market fruits and vegetables, Megamaxi (like Target), nice medical clinics and hospital, lots of outdoor activities AND breakfast view of snow covered Cotopaxi....," explained one expat living in Valle de Los Chillos , Ecuador.
