Aug

2011

I am contemplating on a move to Ecuador. I have a choice of either the ocean side or near to Cuenca. I would need a two bedroom two bath(?) condo or house. where would a single mature senior citizen find the somewhat best place to live in peace and harmony.

I would be coming in on a construction Visa. The $25,000 level. Any suggestions.

Answer #1

Sure! Find your ideal place first… take a month and travel around Ecuador, Cuenca…the coast, etc…

Then get a rental… you can search on the net or in the local papers in the area you decide on…

Then focus on your investment visa… after investing… you’ll need to present the title of your investment in order to qualify for that type of visa.

please let me know if you have further more specific questions, Dom

I would agree with Dom on this…come on down on your tourist visa for 3 months…live a month in 3 different areas to get a real feel for what it is you want. Lately many clients have contacted me wanting to move out of the Cotacachi area as its too cold or crowded for some of them. I find this an interesting trend. The highlands stays cooler and that might be great for those that are coming from Texas, Arizona, Florida etc, for a while, but it seems they really didnt want that, but there was so much being written and pushed by international publications that made it sound so romantic. My point being, come down and live in an area that you are considering first so you can see if it fits the lifestyle you want. Good luck and if I can help let me know..Larry
