Why do people move to Ecuador?
When we asked people why foreigners move to Ecuador, they responded...
"Ecuador's diverse natural beauty, welcoming culture, and relatively low cost of living are all attractive factors for expats looking to move to the country. Thanks to its stable government, strong foreign investment, and positive economic outlook, expats can be confident in making a move to Ecuador. Furthermore, Ecuador's location in the South American continent means that expats can take advantage of easy travel around the region as well as access to a variety of other South American countries. All in all, Ecuador is a great option for expats looking for a diverse culture, a relatively low cost of living, and an affordable and accessible place to explore South America," said another in Ecuador.
"Vilcabamba is a small town in South Ecuador. It is also called a Valley of Longevity. People come to live here for its natural beauty, fresh air, water and perfect climate all year round," explained one expat who made the move to Vilcabamba, Ecuador.
