After being ranked the number one (#1) spot to retire to (multiple times at that during the past decade or so!), Ecuador has for 2019 achieved the #2 best rated country for retirees across the globe. And, Ecuador will quite likely YET AGAIN be selected either #1, #2 or #3 in the 2020’s and beyond, because as a Retirement Haven, it is simply known by the Expats who move here as “second to none”, and also as the “best home away from home” of all!

But besides its most well known Expat beloved city of Cuenca, more foreigners are also relocating to other beautiful areas of Ecuador, as the Retirement Cuenca Ecuador Cost of Living compared to the US or Canada is truly just a small fraction to have a standard of living in Ecuador fit for luxury in relation to the US or Canada.

And, it is VERY COMMON for Shipping Containers to Cuenca OR Shipping Containers to Ecuador of your Household Goods (Ecuador Container Shipping) to any city or town in Ecuador that you wish to make your new Ecuador home (the cost of shipping Household Goods to Ecuador or shipping Household Items to Ecuador is very reasonable when considering how relatively expensive new high quality appliances are in Ecuador as compared to North American or European prices).
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.
