Expats living in Panama, Ecuador, El Salvador, Belize, or Nicaragua, I'm planning on moving from country to country for up to 6 months during the winter using a tourist VISA. Is there a charge for a VISA? Is the weather cold in Ecuador during certain months? If I were to rent a room in someone's house to save money, would I have access to their kitchen everyday to cook? Someone told me I wouldn't. I just want to verify. What's included in renting a furnished apt (utensils, toaster, coffee maker, plates, etc)? I'd hate to keep buying these things everywhere I move to. Everything I read is the same but then someone tells me something different. I need more info from expats. Thanks.
