Customized Spanish lessons for you with a native tutor from Cuenca

Hi, My name is Sandra. I am offering online tutoring services to individuals of different levels of Spanish (elementary, intermediate, upper intermediate and advanced) via Skype.

I am a passionate tutor, I teach through practice and I always adapt my lessons to the needs, learning styles and interests of each student. You just need to tell me if you need help in grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, writing or conversation. Remember you are the boss.

I have experience teaching Spanish to foreigners living in Ecuador and abroad, so I know very well the challenges that come with learning a new language, but don’t let yourself be intimidated, I can help you.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information (rates, schedules, etc.) and if you wish we can have a 15-minute free session.

Temporary/permanent visas… 100% guaranteed

If you are filing for a temporary/permanent visa, I offer a 100% money back guarantee. That’s right. If I don’t get you your visa, you pay nothing. My name is Isabel Mosquera. I am an Ecuadorian, who studied and lived in Canada for many years. I have been a Visa Facilitator for over 7 years and have assisted more than two hundred and fifty Expats in obtaining their Visas, Temporary and Permanent, Cedulas, Translations, Health Insurance, housing and much more. These services are available as one fee package or individually. I own a car, so transportation is always included at no extra charge. I have always gotten my clients their Visas, even under the most difficult of circumstances, such as unreadable fingerprints for FBI reports.

Have you moved to Ecuador without the required documents? Don’t worry, I can help. I offer free consultations, either by telephone, email or in person. I am at the Immigration office on a very regular basis, so I am knowledgeable about all recent changes in the law and am happy to share my knowledge with you. I will be happy to provide you with references.

I look forward to serving you.

Rent and home insurance by Bluebox

“Bluebox, the expat one choice for all their insurances needs”

With less than the cost of a coffee you could protect your home against all risks. The biggest mistake we make many times is to think that unforeseen events cannot happen to us. We assume that everything will be fine, and in part that is the best way to live, but what happens when you face that unforeseen event far away, and that earthquake ends up fragmenting the structure of your home and you are not insured, or if that friend of the stranger decides to enter your home and snatch your belongings, what to do?

Bluebox Asesores has been in the insurance market for almost a decade, in which it has gained enough experience to recommend you to contract a renter’s insurance as soon as possible, since this type of insurance with minimum annual payments can be very useful when you feel vulnerable.
A renter’s insurance can save you from trouble, do not hesitate any longer. We have what you are looking for at the best price. We have our own product for expats that will insure your contents and your structure, which will allow you to be protected against any event of nature, theft, fire, flood, water damage, rain damage, electrical damage and others.

Note: the value of your policy will depend on the value of your contents and structure. Jewelry and works of art are not insurable.

Expat Envoy – update to service

Good day everyone…

Some of you may have already heard, but for those of you who haven’t, I will be moving to the US in June.
This will not affect Expat Envoy.
We won’t stop, or be delayed, at all.
We’ve been running non-stop since the lockdown lifted last year, and we have no plans of slowing any time soon.

Everything regarding Expat Envoy will remain the same, except for the pickup location within Cuenca.
(It is nearby, and will be provided in the standard monthly pickup/delivery emails.)

I’ve had a few people email me asking if June would be my last delivery… It’s not.
I may be moving, but the business will remain.
If anything, come July/August, the cutoff dates should be closer to the availability date, no more need to “check with us beforehand”, and we may begin offering “custom shopping” within the US.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me ask.

Have a great week.

Cuenca / USA

The Battle of Pichincha, May 24, 1822 – driving around?

Cuenca Car Share would like to invite you to enjoy the 3-day holiday weekend of May 22-24 with a rented car. Barring any lockdowns, you can get out of the city and travel on this day dedicated to the soldiers who fell in battle on the flanks of the Pichincha volcano overlooking Quito.

In Cuenca, you probably have visited Parque Calderon – named for the native Cuencano, Abdón Calderón Garaycoa who died shortly after the battle where he was wounded 4 times but refused to leave the battle. You have traveled along Sucre street in downtown Cuenca – remember? It was named for General Sucre, the general in charge of liberating Cuenca and Quito and defeating the Spanish armies. Read up on this – it is quite a good history about the liberation of Gran Colombia and, eventually, Ecuador from Spanish rule.

If you want to rent a car for this weekend, please contact me at Cuenca Car Share as soon as possible to ensure that one is available. Remember that banks and many businesses will be closed on Monday, May 24 – plan ahead. Thank you.

Visa, cedula and migration to Ecuador help

Following a question from a friend who is still outside Ecuador, he asked me if it is true that when you arrive in Ecuador, you receive 6 months of free tourist visa, so I explained to him this:

The first time you arrive in Ecuador, you receive 90 days as a tourist, not three months, I like always to ask my friends, clients, to count the days…

So, when the first 90 days expire, then, you can leave the country or extend your tourist visa for 90 days more, with a pretty simple process at the “Migration Police Office”, pay around $135 per person, and continue in Ecuador.

If you leave the country, when you are into the first 90 tourist visa, the “migration clock” stops, and you can use the rest of the 90 days in the chronological year until the date of your first arrival starts again.

If you leave the country, using the 90 days of your fist extension, the clock will not stop and continue running.

Every year, around the same time of your first arrival, you will receive a brand-new 90 days as a tourist.

Now, about the visa to live in Ecuador in a legal way.

There are many visas to be a legal resident in Ecuador. The most popular is the retirement visa, based on your Social Security income, the investor visa, putting $40,000 in a CD or buying a property with that value in the deed, plus $800 per dependent. And the professional visa, based in the university degree. In all these cases, some extra steps have to be done, in order to process and receive the visa.

All the visas are temporary visas and now allow multiple in and out of Ecuador, valid for 24 months, but, after 21 months you can apply for the permanent visa.

Also, with the visa, comes the “Ecuador ID card”, or cédula, as we call it here. It is an extra step to having the cédula. If you are 65 years old and more, you will have some extra benefits… like a top of 50% discounts on bus tickets, air tickets (before taxes) VAT payback and some more. And, even not having the cédula, and being 65 years old, the final visa price (government fee), normally around $500 plus $50 of paperwork fee, is half for seniors.

Seniors in Ecuador are people from 65 years old, or “Tercera Edad”, third age.

Scratching posts, towers, gym and cat houses

The cat by nature is a very curious and playful animal. Scratching is one of his “hobbies” that helps him file his nails and is a way of channeling his anxiety. If your cat scratches the sofa at home for any reason, you do not have to be angry. Perhaps you are not offering him another alternative or you do not know that he needs a toy to channel his energy. That is why you have to know the star toy, the scratching post for cats.

– The scraper helps keep your nails healthy and strong.

– It serves as a refuge for you when you seek tranquility.

– One of the most important benefits it provides to your cat is that it keeps him active and helps him avoid health problems.

– Helps calm your instinct for curiosity.

– To play and release stress.

We make to order and deliver in 3 days. Strong, solid and stable.
Includes transportation.
