When I left Ecuador, you could be out of the country up to five years with a permanent residency visa. Now I have read you are allowed three years. Please update me,



Booking an appointment for permanent residency

Hi Guys,
I am here on a professional visa/ temporary residency and it’s expiring soon. I would like to book an appointment for permanent residency. How long will it take to get a date for the appointment? I live in Quito.

Help Crea tu Espacio Foundation “Godmother and Godfather for a day”

As Gandhi once said: “Whatever you do in life will be insignificant but it is very important that you do it… you must be the change you want to see in the world”.

Dear Expat community, Crea tu Espacio Foundation is looking for your help. Currently, lots of children and teenagers who comes from an internal and external immigration are suffering various violations of their rights, among the most important we highlight their right for an equal education. During COVID-19 this situation became more complicated where access to technology was a limitation for children to continue with their studies.

Because of this, Crea tu Espacio Foundation launches the campaign “Godmother, Godfather for a day”, which seeks charitable people who wish to sponsor a child or adolescent in this new school year that has begun virtually. With your help we are going to be able to raise enough money and assure that our children and adolescents complete their studies, having greater opportunities to enter university that will help them to find a suitable and stable job. With your help we will be able to build a better future for our country and our world.

Help us building a better future for us and especially for them. To be part of this amazing project you can enter this link https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/godmother-and-godfather-for-a-day/ and contribute with an economic collaboration thattwill help us changing the life of these children, adolescents and their families.

For more information you can also visit our web page: https://www.fundacioncreatuespacio.org/https://youtu.be/_nrsvDvOyPk

Thanks for being part of this change.

Family helper/nanny starting sometime this summer

We are a family of four adults, Canadian/British; my husband and myself retired, our two adult daughters and two grandchildren, 6 and 1 year, respectively. Most of the adults work online/early mornings.

We are moving to Ecuador and plan on travelling around the country for a few months until we decide on our long-term location. Immigration is in process.

Presently we live in Costa Rica and have a wonderful family helper/nanny. She is from Nicaragua but unfortunately, although we have offered to bring her with us to Ecuador….she has declined. Sadly, we will part ways.


Please help us find Simon

My cat, Simon, was last seen near Solano and Arelio Auquilar about 5 days ago. He is a year-old neutered male. He is white with gray on his head, a gray spot on his nose, and a gray spot on his back. He has a tiger striped tail and tiger stripes on the inside of his back legs. I am offering a $20 reward for his return.

Jobs needed

A little while ago, I asked for help for my friend. Specifically, she needs to work in the afternoons. She lost her husband to leukemia after a long battle, has two school-age children, and her morning job only pays $200 – not enough to keep a roof over her head and the children fed. Please contact me if you have any jobs she could do for you.

What can she do? She doesn’t speak English but is able to use Google Translate. She can tutor, cook, clean, and do gardening or other tasks around the home or office. There is nothing like having a native speaker of Spanish assist your child with their Spanish classes. If you can’t employ her for a whole week, even an afternoon or two would help and hopefully someone else could employ her the other days.

Thank you for caring.

Spanish: Why you can’t seem to learn it and what to do about it

“Learning a foreign language as an adult is different than learning as a child.”

I think it’s safe to say you’ll agree with me on that one.

“Learning happens naturally for children, whereas adults have to study long and hard.”

This is typically the next thought that follows that previous statement. But this is where we’ve gotten things all wrong.

As adults, we tend to think that “learning” means stuffing your head in a book, writing for hours and repeating the same words over and over again meaninglessly, until it all clicks and you “supposedly” learn the language.

It’s not our fault, we were simply brought up this way.

Personal sovereign wealth

Inflation got you bummed? Fixed income not going as far these days? Gold not keeping its inflation hedge promise?

Are you not sure how to build personal wealth within this ever-changing landscape of bailouts and Fed Reserve printing like never before?

Your concern is shared with many individuals and you can take control! A network of crypto currencies are changing the landscape of central controlled fiat based society into a decentralized network of individuals taking their power back.

-“Wow” you say? Don’t know where to begin?

Well, not to worry. This movement is still very early, and unlike most investments, retail normal Joes have the advantage. How? Because crypto currencies were built by individuals for individuals. Not big banks keeping them fat and the rest poor.

From the question, what is bitcoin. to what NFT marketplace is for me?

We have you covered.

Consulting in this space takes time, email for your personal needs and we will help facilitate in the process.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner

With Mother’s Day coming faster than you can blink an eye, it’s always good to plan ahead. If you want to rent a car from Cuenca Car Share to go out to dinner or travel around the country, contact me ahead of time. Sometimes all of our cars have been spoken for. Please don’t hesitate to set up your appointment in advance to rent a vehicle.

If you want to travel but can’t, because you don’t have a car, call me. We’ll have a late model car available for your travel date, if you reserve ahead of time. This is a great time to visit the suburbs or wander the mountaintops on your own or with a driver-guide – just watch out for landslides and road blockages which will soon be over, and always allow plenty of time for stopping to look around. We have a variety of options available for you. Free kilometers may be included, depending on the length of your rental. We may offer you a discount if you rent for a longer time. Car insurance is always included (it is usually extra if you rent from a big rental company). Let’s talk.

If you, or someone you know, has a vehicle that is just sitting around idle and you keep paying and paying, maybe we can help you earn a little on your asset by coordinating its use with us at Cuenca Car Share. Just leaving a car sitting is not good for it – nor is starting it every day just to circulate the gas. Let us help you.

Permaculture and sustainable living

Have you ever dreamed of living a sustainable life in harmony with nature?
Have you dreamed of producing your own food, regardless of the space you have?
Do you want to live in a house made with earth or another Bioconstruction method?
Do you want to use renewable and clean energy sources (Sun, Wind, Water)?

Maybe at some point you have felt despair because you want to achieve it and you don’t know what the first steps are or you can’t find the right guide?

I, Andrés, understand you, because I experienced the same problem. That is why I made the decision to learn and become a Permacultor, to change my life and also help other people to change theirs.

Over time, I have gained experience with urban projects and also with farms of different sizes in various parts of Ecuador (Costa, Sierra, Amazonia). From the Permaculture’s design (Report and Plans) to the implementation and start-up of the project.

Based on my experience, let me tell you that this is not for you, if:
– If you are not in search of a true life change
– If you don’t want a better life and a better planet
– If you are not interested in nature
– If you are indifferent to the damage that human beings cause to our planet
– If you are not interested in your health and change the eating habits you currently have

On the other hand, this is for you if:
– You want to make a healthier life change
– If you want to use the free spaces of your house or farm to produce your own food or as part of your personal economy
– If you want to develop an ecological and sustainable farm
– If you want to stop depending on non-renewable energies and stop paying a consumption to companies (no matter how minimal) in order to take care of our planet.

That is why I am personally trying to put into practice what Mahatma Gandhi already told us: “Be the Change you want to be in the World”

Do you want to let more time pass or do you want to act right now?

If you decide to take action, I can gladly help you.

Contact me and we can have 45 minutes of conversation and advice completely free to find the best solution for you.

To do so, you can:
1. Schedule your free conversation and advice through the following link: https://andresbatrespermacultura.appointlet.com
2. You can also send me an email to reserve
3. Or you can send me a message by WhatsApp or telegram to the phone number reported in this message.
