    I am presently a Canadian expat living in Mexico just north of Puerto Vallarta. I am interested in the comparison of the cost of living between Mexico and Ecuador. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats that I would be moving with me if I should decide on Ecuador and wonder if this is a problem. I would probably want to buy a modest home within reasonable walking distance to the beach and wonder what the average 1 or 2 bedroom home might cost. I am a woman living alone and wonder if this is safe in Ecuador. Thank you for any info you can forward to me. Shirley

    • Dave & Miriam says:

      Hi Shirley, you ask a lot of great questions…let’s talk! Please email me again with your phone number or Skype name. Would love to chat with you! Miriam

    Hi Dave and Miriam.

    I’m looking for an investment property that I will eventually retire in (I’m 30, so some time from now). What areas do you recommend? Are there rental agencies that can look after vacation rentals?

    • Dave & Miriam says:

      Hi Brad, you ask some great questions…so let’s talk….I’ll email you. We know about the market in general as far as return on investment. It is strong! And we know of many specific properties that will do nothing but increase in value over time. We are also a rental management agency, so your investment property would have hands on oversight.

    We have been making Cuenca our home for almost three years having moved here from Florida. However since we are wanting to live the rest of our years by the ocean, we h ave decided to move to Bahia de Caraquez. First, however, we need to check out the area and discover new adventures. We will be flyng in to nearest airport on May 20th and plan to stay 7 days.

    We are 80 yo but 40 in our minds. Obviously we don’t wish to buy at this late stage in our lives. We would like to have a two bedroom, two bath unfurnished place as close to the ocean as humanly
    possible. We have read so many interesting and uplifting articles on your beautiful city and are excited to be where we can breathe in the intoxicating salt air.

    If we could set up an appointment with you whilst we are there, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you so much.

    Carole & Ray Walter

    P.S. We have two small pups. A 10 year old, 12 Lb Chihuahua and a 20 lb Wire-hair who is 7 yrs old. They are family so we include them in any moving we do.

    Hello! David and I will be in EC June 17 for 2 weeks. We will be visiting family in quito first before flying to the coast. We would like to explore rental possibilities in the San vicente area. Depending on how much we like it we will consider retiring there. What would your availability be to meet with us at some point. Thanks!
