Buenos Dias, my husband and I are considering moving to Ecuador but are really up in the air about any particular destination. I have some questions and am hoping that those of you who have already made the move might be willing to help me out. We have friends in both Cuenca and Catamayo, and friends that are moving to Ambato. We are considering Cotacachi, Loja, Cuenca, or possibly Catamayo. We do need to be somewhat near good medical facilities, as my husband has had some health issues in the past.
I'm concerned about things like water quality, and (please pardon me if this is TMI) the reputed dog poop everywhere.
Is it true that people never clean up after their dogs? Is that the case everywhere in Ecuador?
Are there any places with clean sidewalks? I'm confident that I can adapt to the beauracracy and the noise, but I'm honestly not sure if I can get used to the sight of dog piles everywhere.
Can someone please enlighten me. I've read that Cotacachi prides itself on being a very clean town.
Is anyone on this forum from there?
Thank you so much in advance for your help! 😊
