5 months in Equador

Jump to last reply

I am more than contemplating spending a few months in Quito, Ecuador, with my 5 children. I am early in the planning and might be open to other venues if I can:
1. Find accommodations somewhat comparable to U.S.-decent bathrooms/kitchen
2. Find good local schools for my children
3. Safe for me and my 5 children.

Does anyone have an advice regarding furnished housing, schools, and most importantly how I can send money to myself while gone (which was an issue when I was in Guatemala.

Though I may be asking you to reinvent the wheel can anyone suggest a few other locals that I might want to see-remember that I will be moving a small army.

Thank you
