Why We Chose Cuenca Ecuador over Every Other Top Expat Destination

We researched a LOT of different expat destinations before we chose Cuenca Ecuador for our exploratory trip back in 2017.

After initially planning a move to Mexico, we changed our minds after relations with the US soured following the 2016 election and drug related crimes in Mexico started to increase. Ecuador seemed like a safer option at the time and it still is, assuming the government and indigenous people come to a resolution over the IMF loan and austerity measures.

Cuenca is an amazing city with a lot to offer both the occasional traveller and the permanent expat. We hope you enjoy our walk through El Centro while we share the reasons why we chose Cuenca Ecuador.

Hola todos! Welcome to my author bio page! Let's see. Where to begin... I grew up in the country on a lake outside a small Kansas farm town. As soon as I could, I got the hell outta there! Since then, I've lived and/or worked in Kansas City, Washington D.C., Denver, San Francisco, and Ecuador. I started and sold a dotcom, wrote a book about it, started a YouTube channel, and now I write a lot. Amelia and I have embraced the Unconventional Life and we want to help you do it, too!
