Hola and welcome to the InterNations Community for expats in Quito! Whether you're due to move or you're a new arrival, InterNations is here to make settling in easier. Many expats in Quito have made use of the wealth of information available here at InterNations, but in our guide articles on Ecuador as well as the local forum. While browsing through the latter, you can find answers to questions like "which are the best Quito neighborhoods to move to?" and "can I find an English-speaking church?". Expats looking for a quiet life with plenty of spare income can try El Centro, while the English Fellowship Church is one possible answer to the latter question. Once you have a little experience of your own, you can begin making contributions to the Quito expat network, too!
With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you move to another city or go on a business trip somewhere — our communities are there to make you feel at home wherever you are in the world.

Quito is a diverse city that offers a blend of olden-day colonial charm and modern facilities. While those who try to live off 2,000 USD a month elsewhere have hardly any spare cash by their next payday, people living in Quito enjoy a luxury lifestyle on a low-cost budget. Expatriates who are looking for work can look at the education sector, whereas those who wish to retire will enjoy comfortable accommodation without wasting their savings. The restaurants in Quito are diverse and inexpensive, too, allowing expatriates to eat out on a shoestring. You can try the Shibumi Sushi Bar while you're feeling healthy or Cyril for an array of amazing baked goods and candies.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Shanghai or Singapore, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
InterNations is the no.1 social network for like-minded expatriates in Quito and other areas of the world.
