Expat Consultations Cuenca

Ecuador Practical Matters. Solved.

We've been guiding expats on how to settle into life in Ecuador for years with our popular blog. Now, we're passing this on to you directly with our expat consultations.


We don't sugar coat what life in Ecuador is really like. It's certainly not for everyone. We believe you deserve to know the full story before committing to a new life here, so we share our experiences openly and honestly with you.

Local Knowledge For the Win

What's better than a consultation with an expat? A combined consultation with an expat + Ecuadorian local. 
Michelle is Ecuadorian born and raised and speaks fluent English. This means we can offer you two very different perspectives in an open, non-judgment forum. 
Your perfect opportunity to ask any awkward cultural questions. 

Online or In-Person

Whilst the majority of our consultations happen online, we're also happy to catch up over coffee whilst you're checking out the popular expat destination of Cuenca.

Frequently asked questions

How do I know my booking is confirmed?

Your booking is confirmed once you've selected your preferred time & paid online. You'll receive an email notification confirmation too. 

How do I access the online meeting?

We'll send you the meeting link just before the scheduled time. We use online meeting software that allows you to join with one click from any browswer. No software to download! 

I want to meet in person, can meet over lunch instead?

Sure thing. We enjoy visiting the many cafes & restaurants in Cuenca. You're free to nominate your favorite or leave it to us. We'll still pay for your first coffee, but we'll split the lunch cost. 

Why do you have a maximum group size?

It comes down to time constraints. We've found that most expats have 2 or 3 key concerns they want feedback on and we can deliver the most value by going deeper into these, rather than skimming the surface of everybody's questions. 

Have a different question? 

We'd love to hear it. Feel free to get in contact with us.
