If you like the “old-world charm” of the early to mid-1900s, then you’ll find Ecuador charming. Not only are the residents friendly, but the air is clean, and the climate is something that you can’t resist between finding a hot beach to a more relaxed city to live. 

A single person in Ecuador can live on a $1,200 monthly budget anywhere in the country. It doesn’t matter if you settle in a large city or a more rural area. Most couples live on between a $1,600 to $1,800 budget.
