Retirement Benefits - Ecuador


Looking To Retire
Manabí Province

For the past several years Ecuador has been listed in the top three of countries to invest and/or retire.  Ecuador has emerged as a welcoming haven for those wanting to retire or invest. The property market offers significant bargains and a comfortable lifestyle on just a fraction of what you’d spend in many parts of the world.
Ecuador is one place right where the U.S. dollar is not losing value, which makes an Ecuadorian retirement especially appealing.
It’s not just properties that are affordable in Ecuador–nearly everything is from the cost to hire a full-time maid to the price of produce, dinner in a fine restaurant and the low cost of living.
Manta is presently growing because of the continued interest in foreigners looking for a country/city to purchase property for investment and/or to plan for the near future when they can retire in a country that is less expensive than the US, Canada and most other country.

Here in Manta there are many projects in the works and/or under construction:
* New bus terminal with 54 loading/unloading ramps
* Renovation of Manta airport
* Increasing the existing seaport to allow for larger container ships and cruise ships
* Building of a new oil refinery south of Manta
* Renovation of the Malecón and other major roadways along the ocean
* New 210 store mall in the main area of Manta
* Building of new condominium
* Building of new gated residential communities
* Recent completion of a new sports coliseum
