How Many Expats from U.S. Actually Live in Ecuador? Part of the equation revealed

Posted on December 28, 2015 • Filed under: Ecuador

A common topic from time to time on many of the expat forums for Ecuador is the speculation of how many expats in Ecuador are from the U.S. You may find some guesses in the low thousands and there have been some who believe it is as high as 20 to 30,000.

While the number may be nebulous there is at least one source that may provide a closer account of the numbers. A look at those in Ecuador receiving Social Security benefits may provide at least one key. Of course it does not include those who have moved to Ecuador not receiving a benefit from Social Security.  While one may be closer to an accurate number it still clearly is not the entire number.
