Why such a small and sometimes unknown country stands out world wide? There are 6 main reasons why retirees have chosen Ecuador for enjoying the best part or their lives, and why International Living has proclaim it “World’s Best Retirement Haven in 2015”.
1.- The ideal climate for you!
Located on the Ecuadorian Line and standing across the Andes, you can find in Ecuador almost any climate you like just by changing a little the altitude. With the weather you can also choose your favorite landscape, from the warmth of sandy beaches of the Coastline, to the fresh mountains of the Andes, including the humid warmth of the Jungle and many other micro climates you can find across only a few kilometers. All year round sun rises at 6am and goes downs at 6pm, so even if there are two seasons (the rainy season and the dry season), most of the time is quite difficult to define them. That’s why Ecuador has its reputation for being on Eternal Spring. You only need to choose!
2.- A country that looks after retirees
There are many benefits retirees can enjoy in Ecuador. For example, elder people can skip lines and go directly to the front desk in banks, drugstores, and many business. Also people over 65 years get discounts up to 50% in bus and air tickets, entrance to entertainment options like cinema, theatres, concerts, and so for water and electricity bills, and even some taxes!
4.- Easy to integrate
