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.

Recommendation for Madeleine Gonzalez Mensch, health insurance, etc.

Madeleine “Mady” is my go to person for anything that stumps me as an expat living in Cuenca. She is a fountainhead of information and, most importantly, really enjoys helping people. She has helped me with health insurance, finding a place to live, making appointments for me when my Spanish is too limited to do myself and even goes the extra mile in finding a person who can help me if she cannot. She’s great with following up with me to make sure I’m satisfied with the results of whatever task I’ve given her. Mady is true to her motto, “Yours to count on.” I can say with confidence that she is someone you can count on.

Recommendation for Nunkui Feria Amazonica, artisanal products from Amazonian nations

Stepping into the showroom of products from over 30 indigenous groups is like a mini-trip to another world. Large fotos show the women’s collectives that produce the top quality ceramics and basketry, jewelry and creams, as well as chocolates, coffee, and ecologically safe beef and Paiche fish.

The enterprise was started by Paul and Lucia, a lovely couple who lived in the Amazon for 10 years working to assist the indigenous groups to resist the lure of jobs from extractive industries, like mining and drilling and deforestation.

The culture of each community has survived thousands of years in harmony with the natural abundance of the Amazon. The Gallery is a place for us to help provide these women’s collectives with income to be able to continue their lives in the intersection between modern life and the traditional lives.

You can order from the website and Paul will deliver your selections here in Cuenca.

Recommendation for Braulio Prado, driver/handyman/translator/tourguide/faciliator

Whatever you need in Cuenca, Braulio Prado can help you. I have known Braulio now for a year. He has driven us to the Cajas, Yunguilla and Azogues, negotiated for us with Netlife and Etapa, landscaped our garden, made home repairs, told us where to find the best ceviche and cuy, and explained Ecuadoran history.

Riding in the car with him is never boring. He speaks excellent English, he’s sociable, curious, respectful and informative. Growing up in the hills around Cuenca, riding horses, fishing in lakes, climbing mountains, bird watching, he is thoroughly familiar with everything. And, because he grew up here, he has friends and contacts everywhere. If he doesn’t have an answer to your question, he knows a friend.

Not only is Braulio proficient and helpful, he is one of the best men I’ve ever known. He is always willing to go the extra mile to help, and he truly cares if you’re alright. So, whatever you need or want, Braulio is your man.

Recommendation for Paw lovers Dog GroomingG

Great experience with Paola. We first met her as she runs a rescue for dogs and we adopted our newest baby, Shadow. Paola has a loving heart and has followed up since to keep updated on her wellbeing and to let us know about her sisters that she re-homed as well.

We recently utilized her service to have two of our dogs cleaned. Paola came to our house, transported both of them to her facility and brought them back clean and beautiful! (Even put bows in our Ñina’s hair!) Paola speaks great English and really does care about every dog from the bottom of her heart. I highly recommend her for her communication, professionalism and genuine care that she puts into every fur baby she works with.

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.

Recommendation for Mike Coffey, massage

I was able to take advantage of the massage special that Mike offered this week and it was fantastic.
Two hours went by so quickly.

Over many years I have attended many different types of massage, and none more effective, than that of Mike. His hands work marvels, not only at the time of the massage, but the effects of the massage are rewarding. I find I bounced back into my exercise regime with confidence after a massage, as the massage is thorough and effective.

Mike is very knowledgeable and professional he is able to explain what’s going on with my body and gave me some tips and exercises to help with some of the daily issues I have.
I can’t wait till our next session.
Thanks again Mike.

Recommendation for Orlando Siguenza, driver, facilitator, tour guide

I’d like to recommend Orlando Siguenza as a driver, tour guide, and all-around great person who can help with almost anything.

I began working with Orlando for help with errands in Cuenca and renewing my passport. As time went on and Covid changed things, he became my go-to person for regular errands. He’s always on time, a safe driver, a great negotiator/translator, and a true gentleman.

Orlando has driven me to Guayaquil and more recently, to Quito. I dreaded the long drive, but I had a lot of luggage, and it turned out to be pleasant and comfortable. He has a large SUV for airport runs as well as a sedan for shorter trips.

During the Quito drive, despite some iffy weather, I also got the benefit of Orlando’s tour guide skills. His body of knowledge about Ecuador and background accreditation as a tour guide made the long trip far more interesting.

He’s a real asset. Please contact him directly for local errands, tours, longer trips or airport runs.

Recommendation for Jonathan Arias, facilitator; Monica Gonzaga, facilitator

After contacting Monica Gonzaga for help with my missed first dose vaccine, she said her office could assist. She was leaving for the US, but put us in the capable hands of Jonathan Arias, who works in her office.

Jonathan met us at the Coliseo at 10:30 AM this morning. He took my registration paperwork and within 10 minutes the paperwork was being filled out for my first vaccine. We were out of there by 11:25 AM. He confirmed several times that I return to the Coliseo or the second shot. The date is on the paper they gave me.

My spouse never received a paper for the first shot. Jonathan made sure of the location for the second shot for him as well.

For an entire hour, the fee was only $15. I cannot praise Jonathan enough and those who work at Monica Gonzaga’s office. They always come through for us.

*Monica is out of the country for 10 days, so best to use the email address, which others in the office will respond to.

Calle Larga has countless restaurants, excellent hotels, historical ruins, beautifully restored early 20th century mansions, antique shops, artist workshops, traditional bakeries, and cloisters. A colorful, indigenous mercardo — where you can purchase fresh fruits, vegetables and meats – is just a 1/2 block away, and across the river, an easy 10-minute walk through the lovely Parque de la Madre park, is the modern supermarket, Supermaxi, and “New” Cuenca.

The Master Suite is located on the second floor and has a large Master Bath with double sinks, marble countertops, and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom, located on the main floor, features a custom, white leather sofa bed with a German-made mechanism for ease and comfort. This room can also be used as an office, as there are two desks in the room for convenience and workability.

There is also a large storage closet in this guest room, perfect for luggage, holiday ornaments, or outdoor patio chairs.

The apartment is completely turnkey, with lovely dishes, glassware, all appliances, sheets, towels, artwork, furnishings, and more. All of the lights in the condo are LED for reduced electric bills.

Condo with all the features of a penthouse

This condo is a one-of-a-kind architect designed showplace. Every room has designer upgrades that far exceed the average Cuenca condo. This condo is designed for the buyer with an eye for detail with features that delight the senses.

The condo is close to Cuenca El Centro; 5 minutes on the Tranvia (stop 1/2 block from condo). The Tranvia goes directly to the bus station and airport. It is not necessary to have general-public amenities with a unit like this. Rarely do residents use community outdoor swimming pools because of the relatively cool weather year-round. River Palace door staff are high quality dedicated individuals ready to be of service.

Master Bathroom

The master bathroom shower is designed to make use of the existing space with the bathroom door closed and the shower door opening inward. A floor door-stopper keeps the master bath entry door from swinging past parallel with the side wall. The shower is sloped down and away to a slot-drain at the rear of the shower stall. The shower is lit by a separate light switch. Unlike most Ecuadorian condos, all bathrooms have designer Moen hardware to include bath-towel bar, robe hook, hand-towel bar, and toilet paper holder. In addition, the master bath has floor to ceiling mirrors on the far wall and two contemporary mirrors that were wired special to operate independently. The master bath floor is heated by wall controls that can be operated manually by temperature or set by timer to come-on and shut-off at designated times. The toilet is a contemporary design with stylish low back, two flush water settings, and a large elongated bowl. The bathroom cabinets were extended from the standard single bowl to custom specifications designed by an outside architect and unlike any standard issue. The granite is upgraded in quality and color to match the gray cabinetry and wall tile for a harmonious experience in a luxurious modern functionality.

The condo has three full bathrooms, all with ample amenities for owners and guests. Both en-suite bathrooms have heated tile floors and sealed tile grout in showers and floors.

Living Dining

The floor to ceiling sliding glass walls extend 10 feet high and transform the large atrium living area into an inside/outside paradise. The glass walls stack all in a row to create a true indoor/outdoor showplace. The architect-designed glass wall panels are so large, they had to be hoisted individually 5 stories outside the building. Upgraded tile extends from interior to the full length of the large outdoor terrace. Programmable heated floors warm the living room sitting area and gourmet kitchen. Three light grids were designed into the ceiling lighting that showcase living, dining and bar areas with warm canister lights. Pergola track lighting extends the size and diversity of the atrium-extended living and dining areas. A modern double-chandelier showcases the dining table for entertaining or an intimate dining experience. An intercom and front-desk com system is at your fingertips. Hard-wired internet is installed to the living room TV and kitchen bar areas. Ceiling sun shades calm the rays of the mid-day sun.

Terrace

The large terrace wraps around two sides of the condo with window walls or sliding glass doors on all sides. The terrace is accessible from all living areas and bedrooms. This penthouse-like view of the river and mountains is both tranquil and dramatic. Hot and cold water for an outdoor shower and watering plants, electricity, and gas for a BBQ were extended out onto the terrace. In addition, the terrace was upgraded to carry the increased weight of a jacuzzi. Terrace plants are lit at night on a timer and an automatic drip system has been installed. A gutter was installed to carry away high volume rainfall water from the pergola directly to a terrace floor drain keeping water splatter away from the glass walls and doors.

Master Bedroom

The river master has a see-though fire place slot, heated floors, TV wiring, sitting area, window/door shades, and custom king bed. The side master features a queen Tempur-Pedic mattress, sitting area, and black-out shades. The side master includes extended bath size with heated floors, rain-bath shower heads, Moen fixtures, and upgraded granite and tile. Both have upgraded custom cabinets and drawers.

No builder grade options remain. All upgraded.

Kitchen

Kitchen cabinets are upgraded shinny white. The cabinets and drawers were extended 3 times original capacity. The bar was designed and upgraded to accommodate 5-6 persons. Gourmet kitchen includes Viking 6 burner gas cook top, dishwasher, oven, refrigerator/freezer with water and ice maker. Heated floors, TV and internet hookups. Increased electric outlets. Under cabinet lighting.

Take a look at this 2-bedroom condo with an amazing open area and inspired views to the exterior. It comes fully furnished, ready to move in, internet service already connected, HOA dues are around $120 per month. Electric average $25 per month and internet $30 per month.

Contact us today and don’t miss this unique Condo in Cuenca, Ecuador.

Furnished, $285,900 negotiable. Pets are allowed.

Luxurious, spacious hacienda with US-style design and amenities

400 m2 of construction per architect/builder (4305 sq ft) 
56,312 m2 of land (13.91 acres; 5.6 ha) 

For Sale 

This spacious, single-level 3+ bedroom home offers the fresh air, peace and tranquility of country living without sacrificing any of the conveniences of the city. Enjoy breathtaking views of Cuenca from the front of the house or take in the incredible unspoiled natural beauty of the Gordeleg River valley from the rear. Yet you’re only 20 minutes away from the Cuenca autopista. 

We searched in every direction around Cuenca for more than a year before finally finding this perfect property. Typically, choosing to live outside the city necessitates giving up many of its advantages. Not so with this property. Every city amenity is available and provided here: clean, potable city water from ETAPA (same provider as Cuenca), high-speed fiber optic internet service, trash pickup, gas delivery, 110/220V electric service, city bus service, telephone, and streetlights all the way into Cuenca. Tiendas, hardware stores, ATMs, restaurants, pharmacies, auto repair and many other services are all available in nearby Santa Ana less than a mile away. 

After finally finding and purchasing this beautiful mountaintop property, we then devoted another year to custom designing the home and vetting a number of architects/general contractors to build the house. We ultimately selected one of the most respected and premier architects for the job, Arq. Gabriel Reyes. No detail was overlooked in the design, construction or finish of the home. Site preparation, foundation, structural integrity, high ceilings, open floor plan, multiple skylights, radiant heat in the floors throughout the entire house, a huge chef’s kitchen equipped with imported high-end North American appliances and designed for both the gourmet chef and for entertaining, double-pane windows, porcelain tile throughout the entire house, abundant total LED lighting and so many more quality amenities rarely found in even the most exclusive homes in Cuenca are just a few of those myriad details. 

The features built into this house are simply too numerous to list completely but also include en-suite bathrooms with large walk-in showers in each very spacious guest bedroom (each also features a large American-style walk-in closet with custom cabinetry), a huge built-in entertainment center in the den, solar panels to augment hot water for the thermostatically-controlled and zoned whole-house radiant heat system, a 50-gallon tank-type water heater imported from the US that serves the kitchen/ laundry room/ master bedroom (and a separate calefon for the guest bedroom wing), central gas, a large walk-in pantry, a true American-style garage with remote-controlled overhead door, and a master suite so large that you could get lost in it. 

The master suite occupies its own separate wing of the house and includes a sitting room, a huge area for king-size bed/armoires/ dressers and more, his-and-hers large walk-in closets with custom cabinetry, an oversized master bath with dual lavatories and cabinetry with tons of storage, a two-person jacuzzi, a giant walk-in shower with dual shower columns and rain-shower heads, and a separate water closet room. Additionally, the master suite also features an adjoining 12×14 office/library that could be easily converted into a workout space or even a fourth bedroom if desired. 

Outside you’ll find a large outdoor kitchen with oversized horno de leña (pizza oven) and wood grill, a huge wrap-around patio with bench seating and gas-fired firepit, a large storage closet for lawn equipment, a barbecue pit supplied by a central gas outlet, soffit down-lighting surrounding the entire house, a 2500-liter reservoir tank that collects rainwater for irrigation, engineered water-management systems to control runoff and immaculately landscaped grounds surrounding the home. 

There is so much more, but you just have to see this masterpiece for yourself to appreciate all the designer touches. The list price is for an unfurnished sale, but the owners are willing to sell the house “turnkey” if the buyers desire. Also, a Lexus RX450-hybrid with about 55,000 miles may be included in the purchase at a negotiated price. Come see this gem and make us an offer — we are motivated sellers for health reasons and are ready to entertain any reasonable offers.

Unfurnished, $495,000 negotiable.

Dear Cuenca Community,

How do I get rid of fleas?

I don’t have fleas but my cat does, and I don’t seem to be able to get rid of them. He has been treated for the last two months and though he never goes outside, he keeps getting fleas.

If you know how to help, please let me know. I haven’t found a service or product to fumigate the apartment but I have to do something. It is very unhealthy for him and not very pleasant. His fur is beginning to come out and the vet said it was because of the fleas. We would both appreciate your help.
