Cost of Living in Ecuador
Country-wide, the cost of living in Ecuador is about as inexpensive as it gets in Latin America. And within Ecuador, cities like Cuenca and Loja have living costs less than you’ll find in other major cities throughout the region. In fact, they are among the cheapest you’ll find for cities that still have the full complement of city amenities. Dinner out in Ecuador is inexpensive, and a three-course lunch can still be found for one dollar at many mom-and-pop restaurants.
