GringoPost is a group of volunteers with the common desire of offering FREE classified ads and information to the Expat community.
GringoPost is happy to provide a forum for product and service providers relevant to the expatriate experience…! We must maintain the right balance of community and content with useful resources that expats really need to manage their relocations and their new lives abroad. If it’s not relevant to international relocation or living abroad, it doesn’t go in our posts.
Our site was founded by volunteers upon the belief that “Expats are their own greatest resource.” Our community of expats in Ecuador has grown from hundreds to thousands. We are grateful for each expat who reaches out to help another expat or someone preparing to make the move. Whether you are selling useful items, recommending a local school, offering advice about apartment hunting or supporting someone facing culture shock, we sincerely thank you for your posts.

• Fоr Sale – Apparel, computer, electronics, jewelry, event tickets, furniture.
