      Crossing the Ecuador Peru border

      Vilcabamba Apr 18, 2016 at 6:40 AM

      I am a backpacker who will be heading towards Peru from Ecuador. What is the most effective way of crossing the border by land? It appears that there are 3 major checkpoints where this can be done, with one of them being near Vilcabamba (the others being from Machala and Macara). Specifically, I am looking for the safest, fastest and least problem-bound choice.

      Any feedback is appreciated!

      Hey, I just got offered a job in Loja teaching English and I will be leaving from New York to get there. I plan on flying into Guayaquil, and do not know what the best way to get to Loja is after that. I hear they have small planes, but I also hear that buses are very cheap. Any help would be great!

      My wife and I are planning a trip to Cuenca, Ecuador in early June and want to visit Vilcabamba. Our goal is to relocate from Tennessee, USA to Ecuador by the end of 2007. Vilcabamba has the most appeal to us for its low cost of living and hopefully low crime rate as compared to the bigger cities. My wife is 61 and I am 71 and drawing Social Security. My wife will be receiving SS benefits in early 2008. We have many questions about life in Ecuador which will be mostly answered when get there in June. We would very much like to meet expats living in Vilcabamba when we arrive. Any information on relocating and living in Vilcabamba or Ecuador in general is much appreciated.
