It was a cloudy morning when we woke up, but after enjoying some delicious Loja coffee, we ventured out for a morning walk.

The day before, we stumbled upon Parque Pucará not too far from our AirBnB in El Centro. It looked like a cool park so we wanted to go back and film some clips for our Loja Pros & Cons video.

We were having so much fun that we decided to record an entire video. And we’re glad we did because we found something totally unexpected!

HIGHEST CONCENTRATION OF EXPATS IN ECUADOR!

Vilcabamba Ecuador has been popular with expats for a long time. It’s a quaint mountain town that sits in a valley surrounded by beautiful panoramic views.

It was originally considered for inclusion in the list of Blue Zones, which are areas around the world where people live exceptionally long.

However, it didn’t make the final cut because the birth records for the oldest people couldn’t be verified. Learn more about the Blue Zones here.

Its omission from the final list didn’t stop the belief that Vilca is a valley of longevity, which is one reason expats have flocked there over the past 15 years.

We’ve travelled to the most popular expat areas all over Ecuador, but Vilcabamba has by far the largest concentration of expats that we’ve seen.

If you want to live in a beautiful small mountain town with nice weather and lots of expats, Vilca might be the place for you. If you prefer fewer expats, but want a similar living experience, you might prefer Malacatos, Landangui, Yangana or one of the other small towns near Vilca.

THIS CITY IS NOT WHAT WE EXPECTED! (Loja Ecuador)

After nearly 5 years in Ecuador, we FINALLY visited Loja! You have been asking us to film there for years, and now the wait is over!

We spent a full week in Loja and logged nearly 20 walking miles, so we got a pretty good feel for the city and what it has to offer. We were surprised by a lot of what we saw. Overall, it was not what we expected.

We’re going to share more videos from Loja and another popular expat town in the area, so be sure to hit the SUBSCRIBE button if you haven’t already.
