I have traveled to almost every country in Latin America in search of the top spots for living, investing, and retiring abroad. From the mountains of Honduras to the beaches of Brazil, I've discovered hundreds of great lifestyle options. But I've never seen anything like Medellín, Colombia.
We took a little road trip to Paute in Ecuador last week. Paute is a small city about an hour’s bus ride from Cuenca. Traveling to the towns around Cuenca is very inexpensive and very scenic. The bus ride was only $1 each way, and the drive had us following a winding river, against a backdrop of beautiful green mountains.
