Cuenca Ecuador VLOG
We get this question a lot: Can I live in Ecuador on my social security income? So in this video we take a look at the most common expenses to estimate your cost of living in Ecuador.
We waited for the rainy season to do the hike up to Las Cascadas in Dos Mangas, Ecuador. It’s been on our list since we moved to Olón, but the waterfalls (cascadas) have been dry for most that time.
Following our visit to Ayampe about 30 minutes north of Olón, several of our viewers asked us to show Ayangue, which is about 30 minutes south of Olón.
We’ve been accused of MISREPRESENTING Ecuador and OVERPAYING for EVERYTHING because our monthly cost of living in Ecuador is more than some people who live much more cheaply than we do.
The Dos Mangas Ecuador jungle trail has been on our bucket list since we arrived in Olón and we’re so incredibly thankful that we finally did it!
We’ve been wanting to experience this adventure since we moved to Ecuador!
We went to La Libertad Ecuador to take care of some banking tasks and while we were there, we took a walk on the Malecón, stopped by a mercado and went shopping for groceries at Mi Comisariato in Ballenita on the way back to Olón.
Wow! This is our 200th VLOG! And what better way to celebrate than showing Amelia learning how to surf just a couple weeks before the world went on lockdown!
We filmed this yesterday in Olón and Montañita Ecuador as we went about our normal daily lives during the Coronavirus pandemic. A lot has happened since then, including Ecuador closing its borders. We’ll share an update video on the Coronavirus in Ecuador tomorrow. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this little distraction.
We’re Amelia And JP, American expats from the U.S. living our unconventional life in Ecuador. We share things like cost of living, safety info, property & neighborhood tours, lessons learned, things to do, ugly truths, city comparisons, etc. so you know what it’s REALLY like to live in Ecuador.
