Paul Acee's Ecuador

Expat life in Ecuador blog. I first wanted to eventually retire south of the border in 1998 but in Cozumel, Mexico. Lately Mexico looks dangerous, and expensive. Then I looked at Ecuador about a year ago, specifically Cuenca and I was hooked. I got here a week ago without ever visiting first. I got an apartment after six days here. I love it and couldn’t be happier.

I got here a week ago without ever visiting first. I got an apartment after six days here. I love it and couldn’t be happier. Why? The adventure, the culture, the cost of living, cost of single payer health care even though I don’t yet need it ($70 a month), taxis are about $2 on average anywhere you want to go in town, bus fare is 25 cents with about 450 buses, don’t need or want a car, Mall Del Rio is about a 10 minute walk from my apartment. The number of expats in Cuenca is estimated to be about 1% of the population, that will have almost ZERO impact on the cost of living here which was something else I looked at.
