What is the best way to find a home in the southern part of the country - mountains and small town? Loja, Vilcabamba area? Can home prices be negotiated from the list price?
Should we bring our truck - ship it? Or, should we buy a vehicle there? We know vehicles are expensive in Ecuador or at least that is what we have read.
Is is safe to live in a small country home near a town? What about water, high-speed internet, phone line? We like the idea of a small home outside of town but need to learn more about the amenities that we want/need, too. We have an internet business.
Any help, ideas, suggestions, people to contact would be helpful! We'd like to move there in the next 1-2 years, sooner is better. We are excited about the next phase of life!
