Big cities, small villages, mountain towns, rural or beach living? What’s your preference? In Ecuador you can find it all. Suzan Haskins introduces you to the top five destinations in Ecuador for expat living.
Getting your finances in order, figuring the best ways to communicate with friends and family back home, preparing your pets to move overseas…so many little details not to be overlooked. Suzan shares her tips to help make it all so much easier.

Cuenca was my first choice as a retirement destination when I retired at age 49. I lived there full-time for almost six years.

I’ve seen the best of what the region has to offer, yet my opinion of Cuenca hasn’t changed.
