This blog is about our story of moving to the real estate project of Las Olas Ecuador, from Mauritius to Ecuador. Located on the coast of the Pacific ocean, Las Olas is an eco-community that encompasses a myriad of amenities, including a championship golf course in Ecuador, a 10-court tennis club, an equestrian center, a beach club with spa, restaurants and fitness center, a 650-acre private nature reserve, a health clinic, shops, and a magnificent beach.
Relocating from the U.S. to Ecuador. This will chronicle our adventures (and misadventures) as we learn to live in a foreign country. "The worst day in Ecuador is better than the best day at work."
Although this blog details the day to day activities over a week, in Baños, Ecuador. I will be including other activities such as starting a business, opening a bank account and some of the things one needs to do in order to function within Ecuador. I am based in Guayaquil, therefore many of the examples will be from there, however, since the agencies I deal with are countrywide, they will appeal to those who settle in other parts of Ecuador.

I lived in Quito for about 9 months and traveled the country extensively. There are a wealth of posts about daily life, food, and the unique aspects of living in Ecuador. There are other posts about traveling in Peru and Chile, as well as living in San Francisco.
Jungle is a vibrant part of Ecuador, which is the beginning of what separates this country from many others. It is not the only thing by far, but it's a good start. Cuyabeno River Basin Reserve is one of those areas protected, to a degree, as an ecological and environmental treasure of Ecuador. Sadly, the oil deposits that lie underneath are a constant temptation for those charged with it's protection. Just 45 families stand between conservation and plunder. Those who "own," or on record have title to this land, but what happens if they leave or die out? Can others move in? Good question. This area is so rich in wildlife and all the elements that provide Oxygen, with the lush foliage that thrives in this jungle environment. The lifestyle for the inhabitants is simple by comaprrison to city life.
I often say that my childhood in the Mississippi Delta prepared me for Costa Rica, and Costa Rica prepared me for Ecuador. "An artist's eyes never rest," and life in Ecuador provides endless material for a highly-creative person!
