Sadly many readers will be led to believe that Ecuador is a good retirement location from this location. What ISN'T mentioned is the Rampant Corruption (named one of the ten most corrupt countries in the world) which leads to many having to pay bribes, the necessity for being able to speak Spanish, the low quality of medical services (All wealthy Ecuadorians travel to the US even for simple checkups), and even the UN is scared of the low value placed on life here (one can hire a hit man for as little $20, and after they kill you justice is NEVER served). There is a reason it is called a Third World country. If you go there as a gringo everyone will assume you are loaded and expect bribes and try to extort you or even kill you to take your money. Scary place, do your research.
