Don, talk with your current Dr. about the altitude issue. We are at 8200 ft elevation in Cuenca. Some folks have issues with their breathing. There are types of health insurance here, depends on how old you are if you qualify. You did not say what your SS retirement was. Most find that $1,000. a month they can do fine. Do not move to any country without visiting first. We are seeing alot of folks doing that now. Seems kind of spendy if they have to turn around and leave. Good Luck!

My wife and I are planning to come to Cuenca in May on an exploratory trip. Possibly moving there by the end o 2012. We would like to meet up with some expats if possible to find out more about the area to help make our final decision. Any help would be appreciated.

Elena, we are not hot and humid type folks, and we are too lazy to remember to not drink or use the water out of the tap.. Cuenca is not hot and humid, and you can use the water. We like Cuenca because there seems to be more things to do, its more developed than the coast. Oh and there are mosquitos galore on the coast.. so there. Those are the most reasons I can think of.. but, I do like to visit some friends of mine there occasionally.. they are worth the bites and humidity! Good luck on your exploratory visit. Karen

My husband, John, my mother-in-law and I are considering moving to the Pacific Coast, specifically Salinas. We have read a great deal about Cuenca and are curious whether anyone on this blog have considered the Coast vs Cuenca. If so, what made "you" decide on Cuena? I look forward to hearing your comments. I will be going on an exploratory trip starting in Guayaquil in mid-Sept until mid-October. We currently live in Las Vegas. John & Joyula, how did you decide on Cuenca? Gracias a todos. Elena
