Live Like A King (Or Queen)

On Only $763 A Month

 Maid, Gardener, Cook,
Travel, Dinners Out, And More…

 You Can Afford It All in Ecuador

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Ecuador is the #1 place in the world for a cheap and luxurious retirement…

In fact, no matter where you choose to live here…

Be it a tranquil mountain village, a historic colonial city center, or along the long stretch of sandy Pacific coast…

US$1,500 a month is more than you’d need for a happy and carefree retirement with all of the amenities from back home… plus a few new luxuries, too boot.

As I’ll show you in a minute, a couple settling in a small town could live easily on about US$650 per month…

But if you’d be happier in a world-renowned, 16th-century colonial city—with its theater, orchestra, art shows, restaurants, perfect weather, and cafés—you can do that starting at US$1,163 per month… or less than US$800 if you own your home.

Add a few hundred dollars to your monthly budget, and you could live in true luxury… with a cook, a maid, and even a driver attending you.

Plus, of course, you’d never run out of things to do…

Not with 1,400 miles of Pacific coastline, several historic colonial towns, the Amazon rainforest, the Galápagos Islands, and the Andes mountains all available to you nearby.

 And Check Out These
INCREDIBLE Retirement Benefits…

The cost of living in Ecuador is cheap… really cheap.

Unlike back home, you can thrive here on your Social Security check alone.

Now, I know that can be hard to believe…

But it’s not just me and my ground-based team of experts making that claim…

In fact, the government of Ecuador has put a specific dollar figure on itUS$1275.

That is, to qualify for this country’s famous retiree visa, you only need a pension of about US$1275—20% less than the America’s average Social Security benefit.

At that budget, the government knows you’ll be able to pay for local goods and services, contribute to the economy, and live a comfortable life…

And talk about comfortable…

Foreign retirees here enjoy some of the best benefits in the world:

  • 50% off electricity, water and telephone service…
  • 50% off all public transportation…
  • 50% off national and international airfare…
  • 50% off all cultural, sports, artistic and recreational events…
  • A special discount on property tax…
  • A discount on vehicle taxes…
  • No taxes on Ecuadorian income or foreign pensions…
  • Even a refund of sales taxes…

And, perhaps best of all, you never have to stand in line. Seniors always get to skip to the front!

Indeed, Ecuador is one of those places that every would-be retiree abroad must consider…

Here Are 4 More Reasons This Is Our
#1 Place To Live Well On A Small Budget

 Cheaper places exist in the world (especially in Asia), but Ecuador gets my pick for #1 Place To Live Well On A Small Budget because it offers so much more…

  • Proximity… Ecuador is in the same time zone as the Eastern U.S. That makes those video calls with the kids easy to schedule, and you’ll never have a problem watching the big game. Plus, it’ll take you only about four hours to get here from Florida, or about six from New York or Texas…
  • Familiarity… The official currency of Ecuador is the U.S. dollar, meaning you’ll never have to worry about currency swings pricing you out of your budget one day. Plus, thanks to thousands of current expats who’ve already taken our advice, Ecuador is home to one of the world’s fastest growing North American expat havens…
  • Perfect Weather… Ecuador’s highlands feature several charming colonial towns, such as Cuenca. Their remarkable location has resulted in virtually no bugs to swat at and “spring-like” weather all year—an average of about 70°F (21°C) every day—which also means you’ll never have to spend money on heating or air conditioning
  • Diversity… did you know that the Galapagos islands, part of the Andes mountains, and part of the Amazon rainforest are all in Ecuador? Aside from nature, Ecuador also boasts diverse lifestyle options, from colonial Cuenca to cosmopolitan Quito, and from the sleepy mountain village of Cotacachi to the beach town of Playas…

What About The Real Estate?

I mentioned Ecuador’s incredible “red carpet” package of retiree benefits…

Of course, this country boasts many options for residency.

For example, the investor visa in Ecuador is easy to qualify for, with an investment requirement of only US$42,500.

Again, those figures don’t fluctuate, as Ecuador uses the U.S. dollar.

While using the dollar doesn’t offer currency diversification, it does offer stability (hence the continued low cost of living).

Regarding real estate, there are few other places on earth where you can buy a standalone ocean-view house for under US$100k.

The colonial city of Cuenca is one of our top picks here… you could buy a home here for well under US$100k…

In Cuenca (pictured to the right), a tourist and expat hot spot in the heart of colonial Ecuador, you can still find apartments for as little as US$75,000.

Now, Ecuador is not a booming property market…

While appreciation and rental rates could be rated as fair, the big idea here is cutting down on your own cost of living.

Owning a home in the highlands, where the weather is spring-like all year, means you’d have no rent to pay and little to nothing in utility bills. Fresh food is cheap and available, and a simple meal at a restaurant—chicken, rice, plantains, and salad—can cost as little as US$1.

If you’d like to add to your wealth, you could set up a low-cost base in Ecuador full- or part-time, while investing around the world or working online at a North American earnings level.

Collecting global income while living on a pittance?

It’s an easy and proven formula for never having to worry about your nest egg…

Could Ecuador Help You Retire…
This Year?

Before he was our Senior Property Correspondent, Lee Harrison was an American in search of a better way of life…

Lee Harrison

“I retired when I was 49… 13 years before I’d planned.

“And it wasn’t because I’d struck it rich; quite the opposite. I had an average income and moderate savings… less than most of my coworkers who stayed behind to continue working.

I was able to retire at that age for two reasons: I retired abroad… and I chose my country wisely.

“Financially, there’s no other way I could have pulled it off.

“In the end, I was shocked at how financially easy it was. Let me explain…

“For most of my adult life, I thought that retiring overseas was for the very wealthy… not for an average person like me.

“I first got the idea to retire abroad while browsing in a bookstore. I found a book written by a guy who had retired early and was living comfortably abroad—splitting his time between Costa Rica and Mexico—on a very modest income.

“His book changed my thinking entirely…

“Instead of working until 62 as planned, I found that I’d have enough to live overseas comfortably prior to age 50.”

“It meant that I could retire when I was relatively young, fit, and able to enjoy a life of fun and adventure.

“But it was critical that I choose the right country.

“Few countries offered a cost of living low enough to meet my needs. And of those that did, most were places I didn’t want to live… places that were cheap enough, but didn’t offer the comfortable, convenient, and exciting lifestyle that I was hoping for.

“But one country fit the bill perfectly… with benefits to spare…

The mountains of Ecuador offer both Spanish-colonial and magnificent,
rural lifestyles…

“It was Ecuador.

“In fact, Ecuador exceeded my expectations in every way…

“I had hoped to find a decent house at a reasonable price. But instead, the proceeds from my small A-frame in Quarryville, Pennsylvania, bought me a beautiful home of over 5,100 square feet… in the best neighborhood of Ecuador’s most beautiful city.

“I expected low property taxes on that home… but was amazed to find that they were less than US$200 per year.

“I wanted to save on utilities… but was taken aback by the huge savings that come with a climate that doesn’t require heat or air conditioning.

“I had hoped for a country with abundant natural beauty and diversity.

Ecuadorian beaches are some of the world’s most unique…

“And again, Ecuador exceeded my expectations, with staggering Andean peaks… magnificent colonial cities… hundreds of miles of Pacific coastline… the Amazon rain forest… and the Galápagos Islands.

“And, most critical of all, I needed a low cost of living. I had only modest savings and a small pension that needed to stretch more than 30 years.

“Once again, Ecuador exceeded my expectations. I had allowed for what seemed like a small budget… but ended up spending even less.

“In fact, I even managed to add to my savings, which was the biggest surprise of all.”

Thanks so much for all you do for us “novices”

Thank you for your no nonsense approach to enlightening us about opportunities in Central and South America… just wanted you to know that you have fan that really appreciates your info, keep it coming! Thanks so much for all you do for us “novices” and hope to meet you soon!

Luxury Living And Perfect Weather
In A Colonial City…

For Only US$763 A Month

Founded in 1557, Cuenca is one of our favorite cities in Ecuador…

A lot of retirement destinations tout the fact that they’re just like the United States—that you can settle in to familiar surroundings—but you won’t hear that about Cuenca…

Living here, walking the old cobblestone streets, marvelling at the historic Spanish architecture and the grandeur of Cuenca’s colonial churches, you’ll know that you’re not in Kansas anymore.

Cuenca’s elevation results in a temperate, “spring-like” climate all year round, so you’ll avoid the expenses of heat or air conditioning in Cuenca.

A large and growing expat community is in place, and they’re bound to welcome you with open arms.

The city is also very walkable, and the public transit system is excellent, like most of Ecuador…

For a 120m2 (1,292ft2), two-bedroom, two-bath apartment… OR a 150m2 three-bedroom, two-bathroom standalone house
Public Transportation
For daily use of buses (25¢/ride) and taxis (starting at US$1.50). You can contract an hour with a taxi driver starting at US$10
Total monthly utility costs
Cable/Phone/Internet bundle
Cable TV, unlimited calls, 20 Mb/s internet speed (more expensive plan can get up to 200 Mb/s)
Eating out twice a week for two at a mid-range, local restaurant (US$8 per meal); local drinks twice a week at a nearby watering hole (US$3 per beer or simple cocktail); US$6 per person each weekend for a movie theater outing
Food and groceries
For fresh, whole foods. Imported, frozen, and processed  foods will cost you more
Maid service
3 hours of cleaning, one day a week
Monthly expenses for a couple

Of course, you can live even cheaper—as low as US$763 a month in the same example above…

That is, just a block or two from Cuenca’s historic town square, you can buy a modern condo for less than US$80,000.

Property tax would set you back less than US$200 a year, and other holding costs are also dramatically low here.

So, buy instead of rent, and you’ll essentially wipe out that US$400 rental cost above…

Meaning your cost of living could drop to just US$763 a month.

You could also spend more… opt for a full-time maid that also cooks, and you’ll add that US$400 a month back to your budget.

A bigger home, faster internet, and your own vehicle would also add to your costs—though your budget would still total less than the average Social Security check.

The key to maintaining a low cost of living is getting to know the local vendors and suppliers, as well as the local pricing and customs.

We can help with that… and much, much more…

LIOS has opened my eyes

Thanks for the inspired work that you do, your encouragement and uplift it has provided me to think in a more expansive fashion… LIOS has opened my eyes…There’s much to do and see still before sunset!

‐‐Miguel Davis, United States

Yes! You Can Do This…

We’ll Show You How To Do It The Easy Way

Many folks who consider Ecuador decide to do it on their own…

But that requires a lot of work and even more precious time.

For instance, in a larger country like Ecuador—about twice the size of Florida—you’d want to cover the country from top to bottom in a rental car to check out your options.

Warm, clear waters await your snorkel and swimsuit… all year long!

And picking where you want to live is just part of the work…

You’ll also have to find and vet an honest rental or real estate agent and navigate a disorganized market with no Multiple Listing Service.

Then, if you want to live here full-time, you can sift through random websites with clashing residency information… or you can waste time searching for an English-speaking attorney to pay expensive fees.

And, perhaps hardest of all, going this route doesn’t provide you a support network. Without knowing anyone else who lives in Ecuador, you won’t have anyone you can ask for help.

In other words, you usually can’t just drop into your new life in Ecuador…

Unless you have the support and expertise of the world’s most helpful team here… presenting:
