What an amazing country Ecuador is! Tucked on the west coast of the Latin American continent, it is tiny and highly underrated.
However, it offers such a diversity of landscapes with its 4 regions: the coast, the sierra, the amazon or "orient" as they call it and of course the world famous Galapagos. Not only does it offer such a diversity of landscapes and climates in such a small area but the diversity of people is no less amazing from the typical and expected Latino (brown dark hair Spanish looking) to almost white with green eyes to completely black. The country has many tribes of indigenous people from the mountain, the coast or the amazon. They all have different looks, different cultures and traditions, speak different dialects. Traveling through Ecuador is a never ending experience of human discovery.
Check out our WHAT'S NEW section. Lots of exciting stuff ahead! Videos, articles and more...
In the LIVING section we provide information about "real life" and culture in Vilcabamba, the Loja province and ultimately all of Ecuador.
There you find a wealth of information ...
In the GAS section we present the so-called "Gringo al SUR", a character that was created for a TV program on Ecotel television in Loja.
He is an expat from Belgium who embarks on a discovery trip around the Loja province and it numerous "pueblos".
The BUSINESS contains promotional videos about Loja businesses. Here we talk about a variety of topics: coffee, accomodation, arts and craft, food.
We thank the growing number of companies who have joined the program and contribute to make this web site possible.
The BLOG section contains articles, journals, opinions, links etc..
Note regarding the GUIDE section: you will notice that most of the information contained there is related to Vilcabamba.
It is indeed the same info that we have already gathered for the site www.seekvilcabamba.com that exists since 2009.
From now on however, we will keep adding information about Loja city and the entire province, not just Vilcabamba.
This is "gringo al SUR" 's job.
This site does not attempt to provide comprehensive and accurate information about
emigrating, living, traveling, retiring, investing etc... in Ecuador. There are
some excellent web sites that we are sure you can find with a simple Google search.
