Ecuador and where else???

Jump to last reply

I am in the initial planning stages our next trip to South America early next year as we are considering a more permanent move there. We are concentrating on Ecuador as this could be a more permanent move for us and plan on spending a fair amount of time there seeing the country, continuing to learn Spanish and to research the property market.

We would also like to explore one or more countries in addition but which ones? We have travelled fairly extensively in Argentina and Peru and, to a lesser extent in Chile but have not seen all of any of these countries by any means. Initial thoughts lead me towards Bolivia and Columbia but where in those countries? We tend to travel overland where possible but according to various reports, this may not be advisable in Columbia.

Any thoughts, opinions, insights or suggestions would be much appreciated.

thursdaysd, I know you always do a lot of pre trip research and are probably concentrating on your next trip but it would be great to hear of your plans for the north.
