Amelia and JP VLOG 213: We’ve been living in Ecuador for almost 3 years, and we still get asked if our home has indoor plumbing, running water or dirt floors. We’re happy to report that the myth is not reality. While some of the more rustic, locals oriented homes do still have dirt floors, the vast majority of Ecuadorians and expats live in places that would fit anywhere in the US or the developed world.
The condos that we featured in this video all had granite counters, stainless steel appliances, air conditioners, high speed internet and they’re only steps from the beach. These are all mid-range rentals in Olón, Ecuador.
You can find cheaper rentals that are further away from the beach and lack some of the luxury items for under $400/month. And you can also find really high end rentals for more than $2,000/month that are large luxury houses right on the beach.
