2012 prices of household goods, furniture in Ecuador

montanita-condo-rentalsThe house I just furnished on the coast of Ecuador.

“Hey Dom, do I need to bring sheets and towels to Ecuador?” My friend emailed.

“Child please, are you kidding me?” Was my answer.

Ecuador is undeveloped but it’s not that ghetto. You can find everything you’ll need to comfortably furnish your house.

To save money I recommend shopping for your household goods in the big cities of Ecuador like Quito or Guayaquil, prices tend to be cheaper and products easier to find compared to the smaller towns of Ecuador.

In fact, this week I was furnishing my place on the coast, shopping almost exclusively at the big-box stores of “Mi Comisariato” and “Supermaxi” here in Guayaquil.
