Home Conference Kit

Congratulations on your purchase of the Live & Invest In Ecuador Home Conference Kit!
Ecuador is home to great weather and jaw-dropping low prices. The country offers perennial springtime in the mountains...a land of longevity in Vilcabamba...and Spanish-colonial charm in Cuenca...all of which can be enjoyed on even an extremely modest budget.

Plus, Ecuador is welcoming, safe, and home to an interesting, eclectic, engaging, and friendly population that includes a well-established expatriate community of like-minded adventurer-retirees who would love to have you join them.

The advantages, appeals, and attractions of Ecuador are many. But is Ecuador a place you want to spend your time or your money?

Our goal with the Live & Invest in Ecuador Home Conference Kit is to provide you with all the information you need to make smart decisions, whether you're looking to live, invest, or retire in Ecuador. The high-quality information and contacts we'll introduce to you below should give you complete confidence as you explore all your options.

The audio clips below are part of the complete collection of recordings and presentations from our recent Live & Invest in Ecuador Conference. To fully enjoy the audio presentations, we recommend wearing headphones.

Welcome To Ecuador

One Of The World's Most Affordable Retirement Havens, but is it right for you?

"Ecuador is a land of mega-diversity." – Lee Harrison

The lifestyles on offer in Ecuador are many and dramatically varied. Quito is a big city. Cuenca is a smaller city, more manageable, more welcoming. Otavalo is a small mountain town. Salinas is a beach town. All are interesting and appealing in different ways, for different people. It depends on what kind of lifestyle you're looking for and, also, important, on your budget. Otavalo is more affordable than Cuenca, which is more affordable than Quito, for example.

Nothing is absolutely true. So, as you consider options for living, retiring, investing, or starting a business here in Ecuador, focus on the comparisons.

There's no such thing as perfect weather. And what qualifies as ideal weather for me is likely different from what qualifies as ideal weather for you. Maybe ideal weather for you is no rain, ever. Or maybe you want to live with flowers and greenery all around...everything growing...and you understand that, for that to be the case, you're going to have to put up with some rainfall.

When you consider your options for living or retiring anywhere in the world, you must address a handful of key issues--weather, yes, and, as well, cost of living, cost of real estate, health care, taxes, infrastructure, etc. Consider all these things comparatively. Is the cost of living in Cuenca higher or lower than in Salinas? Is the quality of the available health care better or worse in Otavalo than in Cuenca? Is Loja more or less accessible than Vilcabamba? Is the per-square-meter cost of real estate in Cotacachi more or less than in Manta? Etc.

Then, to help you layer some perspective over things, draw comparisons between Ecuador and other countries you're considering. Compare the cost of living, of real estate, and of health care...the tax situation...the options for and ease of establishing foreign residency...the accessibility...the opportunities for recreation and culture...etc., between places in Ecuador and places in Colombia, Panama, Belize, Nicaragua, Uruguay, etc.

There is no perfect retirement spot, and no single retirement option is ideal for everyone. Everything is relative...so think relatively.

Below you'll find three resources that will help give you introduction to both Ecuador and the idea of living overseas in general. The first resource is an audio presentation by Lee Harrison welcoming you to this diverse country. The other two resources are PDF reports, one on the colonial town of Cuenca, Ecuador, and the other on important considerations before embarking on an overseas adventure.

To access the information, simply click the download or play button for each component. When available, click the PDF button to access power point slides so that you can view the presentation along with the audio.

Especially when you're just starting out, but even after you've been at this a while, buying real estate in a foreign country or setting up an offshore corporation...these are intimidating propositions. You don't want to worry you'll end up running afoul of some tax law you didn't know existed.

We're here to help.
