At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at Ecuador and some of the social media accounts you should be following if you’re thinking of moving there.

Ecuador Expats
Facebook Group

As you might expect with almost fourteen thousand members, this group contains a fantastic amount of advice for both current and prospective expats. Under ‘Files’ you will find information that has been thoughtfully collated and organised on a wide variety of subjects relating to living and working in Ecuador. Challenges, worries and victories are all covered in this supportive and hugely welcoming group.

Expats in Quito, Ecuador

For meet-ups to finding a pet hotel, visa issues to local English speaking doctors, this is the place to look. In addition to a steadily updated directory this group is open to any questions relevant to living in Quito and prides itself on the genuinely helpful nature of it’s four thousand plus members. Links to other interest groups are handy for anyone looking to bond with other expats over hobbies and interests.

Loja, Ecuador for English Speakers and Expats
Facebook Group

This group is focused on Loja due to the lack of available information in English about the city; this focus makes the group invaluable for any expat considering making a life here. Limited only to English speakers the group also gains insights from Ecuadorian community and local experts are on hand to offer useful advice and pointers. What everyone has in common here is a passion for Loja and a desire to share that with those interested in enjoying an expat life in Ecuador.

Ecuador Expat Discussion
Facebook Group

Sharing information and answering questions about ‘The jewel of the Andes’, is the purpose of this group. Any and all discussions are welcome and every nationality is present, so you will find a range of opinions on hand at any time. More than purely retirees, the group has members of all ages, who will always provide a friendly ear to even the smallest of questions.

Canadian Expats for Ecuador
Facebook Group

Even in this relatively small group of three hundred plus members you will find a range of informative posts based on first hand experiences of Canadians in Ecuador. Everyone is welcome, whether you are considering a move, a holiday or have lived in the country for many years. Watch out for the varied events that pop up and cover everything from bread making and Yoga to festivals and get-togethers.

Ecuador Expats Two
Facebook Group

In addition to friendly and transparent information emphasis is put on ‘telling it like it is’ which is incredibly useful for any prospective expat. The benefits of knowing what to expect, and to sometimes merely expect the unexpected, can make expat life easier to settle into. In a group this size there is always someone around to answer your question or to point you in the right direction of an answer.

European Expats Ecuador
Facebook Group

Small but perfectly formed, this growing group caters for a European perspective on life in Ecuador. Current events and the realities of expat life are always up for discussion here and a sense of humour is an important element of the group dynamic. A strictly no politics allowed policy means that an atmosphere of calm floats through the group and the welcoming atmosphere is completely conducive to getting straightforward answers and making good connections.
