Cotacachi Living

Did you hear about Cotacachi, Ecuador while looking for a low cost overseas retirement destination and wanted to know what it is really like to live there?  Do you wonder if it is as inexpensive as some articles on the internet claim?   After living in this small Ecuadorian mountain town for three years and experiencing all of the changes that an influx of expats have brought, my wife and I created Cotacachi Living to give others a true, unvarnished perspective on what life is like in the Ecuadorian Andes.  No place is a paradise, and the experience of living in Cotacachi has both positives and negatives.  We hope we can give you a more complete perspective of this life in a way that you can't find anywhere else.  A good place to begin is on our Cotacachi blog page or check out our Everything You Need to Know about Cotacachi, Ecuador Kit.
