My mother in law and her sister want to move to Ecuador. We don’t think it’s safe, but she claims it is actually very safe. She says it is very cheap to live there so when she retires and lives on a fixed income it would be a good place to live. We have read that people living there with money (like American expatriates) are kidnapped and held for ransom. How safe would you say it is for two older white women in their sixties to live there?
