I have a large family--4 children , my wife, myself and not to

mention one grandchild. We are seriously considering moving to Ecuador. Yeah, I know it's not a part of the U.S.A., however, according to International Living (of which I subscribe to) Ecuador has been number one on their list for the last several years for Americans, Europeans, Australians, etc. to move and/or retire to. Ecuador has a lot of ex-pats whom now are extremely happy in the decision they've made in permanently moving there. According to not only ex-pats but also employees of International Living whom can provide information and insight in reference to living in Ecuador. FRN's are the currency used there. Not to mention the cost of living is unbelievably low. For instance at a cost of anywhere from $600 to $1,500 a small family can live a fairy tale life. And for a large family $1,500 to $ 2,000 a fairy tale life. These figures include everything (i.e. rent, transportation, electricity, water, propane gas which is delivered to your doorstep if you wish, entertainment, food and alcohol if you drink, etc. And of course the $600 to $2,000 is per month. You can subscribe for one year to IL for $ 49.00. They have a conference coming up in Feb. 7-9, 2013 in Cuenca, Ecuador. So far 129 people have reservations. The aforementioned is a suggestion only and not a recommendation. However from the information and photos I've read and seen, the country of Ecuador is literally a beautiful and a magnificent country. And the coastline which runs the entire country is absolutely gorgeous much like say the Cayman Islands-- white sand and blue water.
