Let Your Money Take You Further by Retiring in Ecuador
If you retire in Ecuador, every cliché you’ve heard about living large on little money–about settling into the lap of luxury on even a pensioner’s budget – is true.
This is one of the world’s most affordable places to live. Take $450 out of the ATM Monday morning, and your expenses are covered for the week. Of course, low prices alone do not make for an ideal retirement or investment destination. There are plenty of places the world over where you can buy cheap land, but you wouldn’t want to live there; not so in Ecuador.
Retirement in Ecuador Means Living Well
In Ecuador, not only can you retire on little money, you can also live very well. Retirement in Ecuador offers something for everyone, and at prices unheard of in North America and Europe. Indulge in a gourmet meal in a world-class restaurant. Why not? The cost is about what you’d pay for bottled water and an appetizer in a restaurant in Los Angeles or New York. Plus, the fresh fruits and vegetables you find overpriced at specialty “organic” shops up north sell at local Ecuadorian markets for pennies.
It’s hard to pinpoint the best reason for retiring to Ecuador, but one thing’s for sure: this is an affordable and beautiful retirement destination. Ecuador also offers a high quality of life. This is no isolated backwater. It’s a land of opportunity, where a middle class is forming. After waking from a long economic slumber, Ecuador is preparing to join the global economy. Recently, for example, the new Mariscal Sucre International Airport opened just outside Quito. It’s very impressive, with plenty of immigration and customs stations. No more congested baggage claim area, and plenty of restaurants and shops.
From snow-capped volcanoes to dense Amazon jungle, from sun-drenched Pacific beaches to the famous Galapagos Islands, this is a place of astounding natural beauty. Despite covering a mere 0.02% of the world’s landmass, it is home to 10% of the world’s plant and animal species. This country’s real treasure, however, is its people. Ecuadorians live their lives in jungle river towns, coastal fishing villages, isolated cattle ranches, the grounds of ancient haciendas, and large colonial cities. Its compact size makes it possible to experience many of these different lifestyles in a single day.
