International Living magazine has been pushing it as a top expat destination for quite awhile now... and suddenly the national news media is picking up on it as well. I myself have my eye on the place as a possible relocation destination in the not-too-distant future. I did find out recently that my telecom pension annuity qualifies me for Ecuador's Residency Program. (One of the benefits of qualifying for a residency visa is that you can enroll in the country's health care program, which is dirt cheap.)

Americans Find More Affordable Paradise for Retirement

Nestled in the Andes Mountains is a kind of paradise that has lured thousands of Americans away from home.

Cuenca, Ecuador, may be a place many people have never heard of. But it's become a city teaming with retirees from all over the United States, drawn there by quality health care, a booming social scene and a low cost of living that makes their nest eggs suddenly seem golden.
