Teach English in Ecuador (Cost of Living)

A liter beer bought in a store will cost anywhere from 80 cents to $1.50. In a bar it could cost $1.50-2. A taxi could cost you $1-$3 to get across a city. But keep in mind that prices in Quito will always be higher.

There are language schools in places like Quito and Cuenca, however, that will take care of this with relative ease. …  Read More
