Did we make a HUGE mistake moving to a rural beach town in Ecuador? (A Response Video)

Amelia and JP VLOG 206: We received a LOT of concerned comments on our previous video about our fears living in a small beach town in the country in Ecuador during the coronavirus pandemic so we respond to some of them in this video.

Here’s a link to our fears video if you missed it: What SCARES us about living in rural Ecuador during a PANDEMIC (Olón Ecuador Beach Town)

What SCARES us about living in rural Ecuador during a PANDEMIC (Olón Ecuador Beach Town)

Amelia and JP VLOG 204: Overall, we feel safe here in Olón Ecuador during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, but we still have a few fears. Living in a rural area in a developing nation during a worldwide crisis without easy access to quality medical care is a bit unnerving. We’re doing the best we can under the circumstances and trying to stay safe and positive.

Our Bus Ride of Terror to Puerto Lopez Ecuador (and our return to zen)

Amelia and JP VLOG 171: After one of the worst bus rides we’ve experienced in over 2 years in Ecuador (from La Entrada to Puerto Lopez), we found our zen on the beautiful beach of Puerto Lopez.

We ended up taking a taxi back from Puerto Lopez to La Entrada, mainly because we didn’t want a repeat of our crazy bus ride there. We also wanted to be able to see the beautiful scenery on the Ruta del Sol highway, and it was amazing. The taxi ride cost $20 and we got to practice our Spanish with Carlos (a very safe driver) the whole way!

6 Mile Beach Walk from La Entrada to Olón Ecuador

Amelia and JP VLOG 170: We took a break from filming and editing the Villa de los Sueños Real Estate Tour video to walk from La Entrada to Olón Ecuador. We had the 6 miles of wide, flat beach almost to ourselves. It’s hard to believe more people aren’t here enjoying this beautiful ocean paradise.

We also had a delicious lunch in Olón at South India Restaurant. The owners are also from Southern India and are good friends of Chinnu and Abin, owners of Paradise Indian Restaurant in Cuenca Ecuador.

Check us out on Instagram for more beach photos: Amelia And JP on Instagram.

We Need to Be More Flexible: Our Unexpected Day in La Entrada Ecuador

Amelia and JP VLOG 169: We had a whole set of plans for the day, but nothing worked out. It was a good reminder for us to be flexible and go with the flow. Even though we didn’t get to do what we wanted to do, we still had a lot of fun and a relaxing day here at Villa de los Sueños in La Entrada Ecuador just north of Olón and Montañita.

Rosie has moved back to Cuenca Ecuador due to family reasons. She hopes to return to Olón soon!
