Requirements to rent an apartment in Guayaquil?

Does anyone know about the income requirements for renting an apartment in Guayaquil, Ecuador? Is it required to get a Ruc to prove you have income? I am an online English teacher from the US. I notice some of the listings have that.

Thanks in advance

How does it feel to be one of the 40,000?

In Cuenca, estimates are that there are about 40,000 people who live on less than $2 per day. COVID restrictions have made the situation worse for many. They struggle to meet basic food needs, get medical care, pay rent, the list goes on. Basics that we take for granted every day.

This week thanks to a generous donor we were able to replace mattresses and fumigate the apartment for a mother of three who had a bedbug infestation. We are providing oxygen support for three premature babies. We are supporting thousands with food who depend on us for the basics.

At Hogar de Esperanza (Home of Hope), our approach is very effective. With our partners from local universities, businesses such as Supermaxi, hospitals and others we have one of the largest integrated programs in Cuenca, providing medical, food, clothing, and other supports. Our team of university students visit people in their homes and assess how best to meet the needs. Every day our team provides life-saving support to many, and we can do more!

How can you help? Drop off any items you no longer need or call us to arrange pick up. Your financial support is always appreciated. You can visit us at the corner of Juan Montalvo and Sucre from 9am to 5pm. Call or email us. You can make a donation at: or for other donation options. Together, lets continue to support those in need in our city. Thank you for your support.

Wire transfers from the US

I just did a wire transfer from my US bank to JEP and thought I’d share with the community the fun new procedures that now exist (thanks to the US government’s updated anti-money-laundering procedures).

When I did a wire transfer two and a half years ago, I had to do none of what is listed below for a smaller wire transfer than what I did this past week.

JEP will now ask you to identify the source of the funds, and to provide documentation that supports that source. In addition to six months’ worth of bank statements from the account where the money is coming from, there are additional requirements:


Little Lupita

Sweet, petite Lupita was rescued from the highway recently. She is about 2 years old and only 7.5 kg. She has the most adorable ear fringe and is very cheerful and docile.

She does very well with other doggies and walks well with a leash. Due to her manageable size, she would be a suitable apartment dog! She currently does her business outdoors when prompted to take a walk.

She has been spayed, wormed, vaccinated and given flea meds.

Would you like to give this darling little girl a new chance at life?

Adjustable walking frame for child

I am asking this on behalf of a family member of my wife. The young girl is 3 y. o. and has a deformed foot from spina bifida. We are trying to work out how to get an adjustable walking frame for her. The father has had a quote from a metal worker in Guayaquil to make one as he couldn’t find any for sale. Any ideas would be appreciated. She is a happy child but I think this would make her much happier.

Fresh, yellow sweet corn at Bernan’s

There is still time to order your fresh, yellow sweet corn from us here at Bernan’s Home Canned Foods. The next harvest will be this Wednesday but all of the corn we ordered is not reserved as of yet. (40 ears left) With the warmer sunny days that we have had here last couple of weeks I have to believe that things are similar there and the ears should be a good size.

Also… if there is anything you may need for your pantry, now is the time to get your order in. Bernan’s will be closed from June 23rd through June 30th. We are taking a 1-week trip to the US and Bernie will return home here while I travel on to visit family and friends in Phoenix, Laramie, and Chicago for another 3 weeks in the US. We have a week to get your order to you before we leave. Things will be back to normal once Bernie returns on June 30th because our plan is to leave here with a full pantry.
Corn orders are scheduled to be delivered on Saturday, June 19th, but if need be we can always add another delivery day to get all of the orders out to you.

Recommendation for Aileve Martinez, cinnamon rolls

I have been eating Alieve’s cinnamon rolls for many months. They are always my breakfast. I have tried other people’s cinnamon rolls but these are by far the best. They are delivered and usually arrive warm. Heavenly. Of course, I have to have one fresh from the oven.

You can expect the cinnamon rolls within hours of ordering and you can order any time. You just have to give her time to make them because they are always made fresh, just for you. They are truly delicious. My friends think so too, if they are lucky enough to come by when I am having breakfast or have just gotten a delivery. Try them. I highly recommend that you do.

After some trail and error, Linda was recommended. She cleaned where others didn’t, wouldn’t or tried with great results.

Recommendation for The Hop Factory, brewery

The Hop Factory is an impressive Cuenca brewery. They create beer for all tastes, and just recently added a line of lower calorie/carb beers. We have tried two of those, and they are perfect; especially for the warm sunny days we’ve enjoyed recently. The Hop Factory is located in a peaceful and quiet neighborhood setting just across from the Machangara River linear park and not far off of Gonzalez Suarez. But they also have home delivery available. What more could you ask for?

Recommendation for Victor Ojeda, facilitator for expats

This is about the not-so-obvious benefits of having Victor Ojeda help facilitate your driver’s license application or renewal, among many other things.

For seven and a half years, Victor has been my go-to secret for making life easier in Cuenca. He has helped me find things, buy things, file things, apply for things, schedule things, interpret things, plus drive me wherever and serve as translator.

But he just helped me renew my auto and motorcycle driver’s licenses, and it made me aware of the not-so-obvious benefits of having him on “my team”:

1. He has accumulated and stored all manner of vital information about me in his cell phone. So, when we’re going through any kind of bureaucratic process, he quickly answers everybody’s requests for information so I don’t have to. Usually, all I have to do is sign the required paperwork.


Recommendation for Daniela Cordero, health insurance

I would highly recommend Daniela Cordero with BMI Health Insurance if you are looking for inexpensive, but quantity health insurance here in Ecuador. For example, this past Feb. 2021 I started feeling tremendous pain in the lower part of my back that wouldn’t go away. I live in the small town of Las Tunas on the coast. After a few days of strong pain killers from the clinic in Puerto Lopez that didn’t help,

I called Daniela. She recommended one of the best hospitals in Guayaquil, Omni Hospital. She handled just about everything from check-in to checkout. I was in the hospital for 10 days (morphine drip, antibiotic drip, misc drugs, MRI, Cat scan, etc. large private room, 3 meals/day). BMI picked up the majority of the cost. My out-of-pocket: $1800. Great person to work with and for me quality company.

Recommendation for Hosteria El Barranco, hotel and/or event site

Hosteria El Barranco is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, retirement, engagement, wedding, or any other event! One of the owners, Luis Arcentalez, helped me organize three events at the hosteria over a three day period to celebrate with friends. One of the events, included being serenaded by two local musicians while we enjoyed dinner, another was with a group of traditional Canari dancers over dessert and the last, was with a musician from Cuenca, Luis Ullauri, who not only sang but explained the meaning of each traditional Latin song. Luis Arcentalez worked tirelessly to create a different dinner menu for each evening, served as a tour guide for the Cooperativa Fábrica de Hats and the Canari archaeological site, and provided impeccable service at the hosteria for our group of 10 guests. The hotel has a beautiful banquet room that overlooks the pool and provides a view of the Andes Mountains and Santa Barbara river. El Barranco has a full restaurant (breakfast, lunch, dinner and events), a bar / lounge and 5 rooms each with an ensuite bathroom. The pool is amazing and has the perfect temperature, even when it’s cooler outside. Their sauna provides relaxation with an infused scent of eucalyptus.

If you need that special place for an event or just would like to get away and experience true tranquility, Hostería El Barranco is the perfect place for all your needs.

Hickory apple wood smoked pastrami and salmon

First, the pastrami is brined for 6 days to give it that amazing pastrami flavor. 10-11 hours of keeping the temperature stable at 250 degrees to create the tender pastrami sandwiches we all love.

The pastrami (brisket) is $15 a pound; fair I think in light of the 12-hour day needed to prepare this feast and the costly wood needed to smoke it. I can deliver Reuben sandwiches as well. The Salmon is $10.50 for 200 grams or $23 for a pound. The salmon can also come as a meal for $11 with 130 grams of salmon including potatoes and greens or sticky rice with sauteed broccoli and carrots with Teriyaki sauce.

$9 for a pastrami Reuben sandwich with homemade sauerkraut and Russian dressing. The Hot Pastrami sandwiches will include a side of mashed potatoes and Sauteed Greens and Cole Slaw. Sandwiches come with 4 oz. of meat and you can get as many extra ounces as you want for $1 an ounce.

Delivery is not included and is usually $2-$3 for most locations.

When it’s not duty free – what is it?

I want to bring back more than 3 liters of scotch whiskey I return from EEUU to EC. Does anyone know how much duty is paid when it’s no longer duty free?
A link to the exact rule is much appreciated. I’ve seen everything from 25% of price of bottles to $7.34 more per bottle and don’t know what’s correct.

Cute little mom dog needs a home

Four days ago, I found this cute little dog right outside our gate. She was sitting on the sidewalk in a very weird way so I went closer to see what was wrong. As I went close enough, I realized that she was shaking and injured very badly. She had two deep infected cuts in her breasts and a couple other wounds in her back. Because she is a mom and had cuts in her breasts, her milk was dripping down on the side walk. As terrified as I was, I took her to a vet where she went through a surgery and got stitched up.

Master moving guide

Need to move an office? Contact Master Moving Guide and find commercial movers with ease. If you are planning to move your office or you are expanding your business, congratulations on that. Starting over in a new place is a good thing for your business. You can never know what you can expect and in most cases, everything goes in a positive way.

Dog resource directory – vets

Thanks to all who have submitted their recommendations (or censures) of various vets.

My aim is to have at least 100 comments in order to provide a really clear picture of who is doing what really well for our dogs (and cats, yes). And yes, who we should avoid.

So please keep your comments coming.

Here’s the original post:

I’m putting together a directory of dog resources for dog owners here in Cuenca. Will you help me? I’d like to start with veterinary care.

Have you had a great experience with a vet? Or maybe a bad experience with a vet? Will you email me privately to say what you liked or didn’t like about the vet you went to?

May I have permission to contact you back? I will be respectful of your privacy but I cannot use anonymous reports.




I have used a magicJack for 5 years here. Recently I started experiencing dropped calls frequently. My renewal date came up and I renewed online. Then I got another email telling me to renew or I would lose my number. So, I went online again and renewed again. I even got a thank you email for my payment. The next day they cut me off. I have tried contacting them, but the only way to contact them is by phone, and they cut mine off. I had my sister in Canada call them and explain my problem and they insist the only way to solve my problem is for me to call them. There is no way to contact them through email either, So, I’m done with them. Does anyone else have another way to make and receive calls from Canada and the US? I would want a Canadian number.
