Thank you so much, i came to guayaquil ecuador beacuase here is cheap and very easy can take residency also beautiful

You can buy a car in Ecuador, but Kenjee implies a good point -- you may only be able to drive it temporarily, until you (a) get a residency visa, followed by a cédula .. (b) go through the hoops involved in obtaining an EC drivers license.

I’d recommend you do steps (a) and (b) before buying 'new wheels.’


If you do end up buying, keep in mind that it’s widely recommended to buy a vehicle that has not been overly exposed to salt air.

If the previous owner(s) lived in the highlands, you may be able to avoid corrosion problems related to coastal-driven cars.

Also i very like hunting but do'nt know about hunting law in ecuador!!!
