We had taken a month-long trip to Ecuador in 2011. We spent most of the time staying in a hostel in Cuenca and the rest of the time taking a Gate 1 tour of Quito, northern Ecuador and the Amazon Basin. However, if we were going to seriously consider making a permanent move to Ecuador, we needed to spend a longer time living in a more Ecuadorian neighborhood. So we made arrangements to rent a furnished apartment for two months in an Ecuadorian neighborhood in Cuence. It turned out to be a bit of a challenge but we did manage quite well even with a very limited Spanish vocabulary.
