Retirement in Ecuador

Bienvenido / Welcome to Retire in Ecuador. You have obviously come to the site because you are researching what is so great about relocating to Ecuador. Hopefully some of your questions can be answered as we have put a lot of work into the site to bring to you as much information as possible. So sit back relax and enjoy the journey. 

Retire in Ecuador remains to be  one of the most viewed websites for retirees thinking of relocating to Ecuador and was first founded in 2008. 

Ecuador has become increasingly popular with young singles, going solo, and there is also seeing an increasingly large number of families with school aged children making the move. 

But Where is Ecuador?

Ecuador is located in South America and is bordered by Columbia and Peru.  The equator passes through the city of Quito

Ecuador still remains in the top ten best places to retire to.  After being the number one spot to retire to for several years Ecuador has slipped into second place after Panama by a whisker.

Cuenca remains to be a  place for retirees to relocate to with having over 4.000 expats.  But besides Cuenca, more people are also relocating to other beautiful areas of Ecuador.  

The best part of checking out this beautiful but small diverse country is that you have a choice of where you may like to live, from the mountains to the coast or you may like a more tropical location.

Whatever your final choice make sure you do take the time to research and spend time experiencing the country first hand.  It may not always be what you want it to be and for some it is quite a "Culture Shock" which they may not be prepared for.
