Nightlife in Ecuador

by Donn
(Florida)

Wanting to move soon, either to Ecuador, Costa Rica, or Panama. Have been doing extensive research, and each has its benefits and downsize. I recently came across an article that said that bars and clubs have to close at midnight and are closed on Sundays? Is that correct? I like to go out occasionally, and when I do I don't want to have to be pushed out the door at midnight. Heck, I don't get started until about 10:00 PM. Comments would be appreciated.

Sometimes advice is given by people that who have lived in very few places and cultures in the world, and think they have the answer for everything. I have lived across Easten and Western Europe, Asia, and even the Mideast. I fully recognize that you have adjust your habits to the area in which you reside. However, I dislike being lectured to by someone who evidently has a snobby attitude. You are correct in that I will probably like to live in a country that is more condusive to my personal lifestyle. I plan on enjoying the life I have left for the best bang for the buck as opposed to finding a place that I can move to and wait wait to die. Begin your social life at 7:00. PM......rediculous. That sounds like someone who goes to bed at 10:00. Don't be so condescending with your replies.

Making Adjustments
by: Anonymous

If you are moving to a foreign country you have to make a HUGE adjustment just doing that. So, your complaint about the bars closing at midnight is so insignificant in comparison as far as making adjustments. If you are retired there is no reason why you can't learn to start ar 7 pm instead of 10. Whatever you did after midnight I'm sure you can learn to do it before midnight. It's all psychological. Remember, it's your choice to live in a new culture. Don't expect them to adjust for you. You will do well if you remember that you are a guest in their country and you need a positive attitude about acclamating. If you can't...then you should just stay in the U.S. Being able to acclamate is going to be the same where ever you go. Gook Luck.
