Which Ecuador City to Live

by John Wayne

16th January, 2013

I'm a young single 50 yrs of age and I'm looking at the possibility of retirement in Ecuador. I like sports, good food, cinema and willing to try anything once. I like Cigars while having a drink at the local pub and still looking for a companion.

I still like to attend college classes...any colleges for English speaking with limited Spanish abilities?

Prefer to have high speed internet but would like to live in a smaller community but safe. Like to live near a body of water (ocean, river, lake). I like a moderate to warmer climate.

Any suggestions on which city and whether or not I should get a pensioner VISA before leaving the states even if I don't know that I'll stay?

What's the average costs of spending for most expats because $1300 sounds low?

I'm usually a jean and boots with some hat kinda guy.

Thank you.

Does anyone local respond???
by: Charles

I'm looking for information about the best areas for retired single folks to live.

Need a couple local pubs down to earth, good restaurants, golf, pool, no weather below 50 and a nice river, ocean or lake.

I've read Cuenca and Costachi may be too quiet for any singles but I'd like to hear more responses?

Love the beach but I read a couple stories about robberies by gangs so is it true or over inflated?

Last but not least I'm 49 but will turn 50 soon so I'd like to not waste anymore of my youth. Does the cable or satellite pick up American sports?? I know it's another country but I love sports and football (soccer) in Ecuador may not be enough. Any input would be appreciated.
