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.
