A. Low Cost of Living
Ecuador offers a very reasonable cost of living that is highly appealing to many. In Ecuador, a couple can live comfortable on $2,000 a month. Drugs are significantly cheaper, and the cost of living is 25% of that found in the USA or Canada. Seniors enjoy 50% discounts on public transportation, cultural and sporting events, utilities, and more.
B. High Quality Health Care
The level of health care offered in Ecuador is extremely good. Most doctors speak English or have English speaking nurses/staff members, and many of the doctors were trained in North America. The hospitals are fully equipment and there is a high number of private clinics available throughout the country.
C. Coastal Weather and Beautiful Beaches
On the coast, temperature remains consistent for much of the year with daily highs ranging from 78 – 85 degrees and in the 70’s at night. The humidity remains low for most of the year, rising slightly during the rainy season, rarely reaching uncomfortable levels. In the mountains, daytime temperatures are generally in the 70’s and dip to 60’s at night.
D. The Real Estate Investment Opportunity
An investment in Ecuadorian real estate is like investing in Costa Rica fifteen to twenty years ago. Ecuador is the right place at the right time. The continuous initiatives happening in Ecuador have had a dramatic impact on the country’s economy and have been a catalyst for other foreign investments and high growth in tourism.
E. Healthy Lifestyle Options
It’s easy to commit to a healthy lifestyle in Ecuador, with access to fresh fish, fruits and vegetables in the stores and markets. These are available all year-round because of the equatorial climate and the multiple ecosystems available. That same climate also makes it easy to participate in outdoor activities year-round.
