Quito, Ecuador

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Feb 11, 2022

Summary: With a population of approximately 2.5 million, Quito has some big city problems like traffic and pollution. But, expats and digital nomads appreciate that Quito still has a small city feel, a low cost of living and year-round temperatures in 50-60s. Plus, it's easy to get out of the city on the weekends to enjoy the fresh mountain air.
