Amelia And JP VLOG 257: Over the past few weeks, we heard from some new arrivals to Ecuador who told us they were having a difficult time adjusting to life here.

Culture shock is very real and it can blindside you when you’re least expecting it. That’s why it’s so important to know about some of the cultural differences that might shock you, and take a few precautions to help you mentally prepare for them.

While our experience is based in Ecuador, these cultural differences aren’t exclusive to Ecuador. You’ll find many of the same issues we described throughout Latin America, and most of the tips we shared will help you prepare for a move to other countries like Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Belize, Colombia, Peru, etc.
