We are intending to spend around 3 months in Ecuador next year as part of a 6 month trip to South America. The intention partly to see the country and partly to consider a more permanent move there. My initial thought is to spend one month in Quito in a rented apartment or house and one in Cuenca and use these bases to explore the surrounding regions. We would then use the following month to revisit some of the places and to further explore the coastal areas and Amazon basin before moving on through Peru to Bolivia.
I am struggling to find any reputable rental agencies so any recommendations would be much appreciated. Is it better to arrange in advance or wait until we arrive. ANy information would be ,much appreciated re likely costs for a one bed, one bath apt with living space and kitchen, decent, safe areas, good reputable agencies.
Thanks in advance.
