Ecuador vs. Peru




I am really getting drawn to Ecuador, problem is my wife is Peruvian. Her family is not happy with my recent interest. Can I get some opinions on pos. and Neg. of either country by people with knowledge of both. Maybe some strong selling points of Ecuador that I can not get in Peru.

Answer #1

Ecuador is much moe developed than Peru. Many parts of especially coastal Peru are poor, barren wastelands.

Ecuador is cheaper, uses the US Dollar and I see more business opportunity here in the short term. BEst, Dom

Answer #2

I am Peruvian married to an american, we used to live in Virginia. I convinced my husband to move to Peru where my family lives.
After 4 years of horrible experiences, crime, dirt, prices rising… we are planning on moving to Ecuador, in theory Peru’s economy is better and more developed than Ecuadorian’s but you can visit any Ecuador city and compare to see Ecuador ‘s quality of life is better, cities are cleaner, more organized, roads in great condition, etc etc. Yes Peru is bigger, has good food and better Malls but hands down Ecuador is a better place to live.
Ecuador’s food is GMO free (Monsanto offices are in ICA), houses are bigger, prettier and cheaper than Peru’s. The bad is that salaries are lower than in Peru.
